Before this, the film producer shared a memory from Cannes. He wrote: ‘We both had a sweet tooth, she had control of how much to have and me no control.”
Adding another precious entry from Tokyo, Boney Kapoor wrote: Walking out of the hotel lobby. We were there for the premiere of English Vinglish. It remains one of the most successful Indian film in Japan.”
The actress’ last film was MOM (2017), which was also backed by her husband Boney Kapoor, for which she was posthumously awarded the National Film Award for the Best Actress in 2018.
Sridevi acted in 300 films in a career spanning over 5 decades. Her last onscreen appearance was in the 2018 film Zero, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. The segment featuring Sridevi was shot way before her death.
Janhvi and Khushi are Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughters. Janhvi Kapoor made her Bollywood debut with Dhadak in 2018 and has starred in several projects since then. Khushi studies in New York and aspires to be an actress like her sister.
