Boney Kapoor, Jahnvi, Khushi get teary eyed as they receive Sridevi’s award


Boney Kapoor and his two daughters Jahnvi and Khushi Kapoor received the National Award of Sridevi at the Rastrapati Bhawan in New Delhi. As the announcer was announcing Sridevi’s contribution to the Indian cinema, Boney Kapoor and his two daughters can’t hold back their tears. It was an emotional moment for the Kapoor family.

Before going to the stage with his two daughters, Boney Kapoor turned emotional.

Like Sridevi, Vinod Khanna’s wife Kavita Khanna also received the award posthumously. The late actor’s wife and his brother Akshaye Khanna collected his awards. Vinod Khanna was conferred with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award.  

Talking to a section of the media about the award Kavita Khanna said, “It’s such a happy occasion and time of great pride for us, for the family, for all his fans and for everyone who loves him. There’s also a sense of his not being here to receive it. But I am so happy Akshay is going to receive it on his behalf... There can be no one better than Akshay to receive this on his behalf.”

President Ram Nath Govind handed over the award to both the families.

Daughter Jahnvi turned up for National Awards ceremony wearing mom Sridevi’s saree with her papa Boney Kapoor and younger sister Khushi. The Kapoors attended the ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhavan to collect the National Film Award on behalf of Sridevi.

Janhvi, who debuted in Bollywood with ‘Dhadak’ looked stunning in a pink border off-white self-work saree.
