As the 65th National Film Awards ceremony will be held in Delhi later today, Boney Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor, and Khushi Kapoor arrived in the city to accept Sridevi Boney Kapoor’s national award.

The list of National Award winners was announced last month and the legend won her first national award for her role in Mom. After Sridevi’s untimely demise, we’ve seen the family spending more and more time together and looks like they wanted to accept the award as a family.

Boney Kapoor had expressed his gratitude on behalf of his wife in a statement to the press.

Thank you. I just wish she was here today to see this. We are overjoyed to know that the jury has conferred the best actor award to Sridevi for her performance in Mom. It’s a very special moment for all of us. She was always a perfectionist and it showed in all the 300 plus films she did. She was not just a super actor but a super wife and a super mom. It’s time to celebrate her life and her achievements. She is not with us today but her legacy will always live on.

Janhvi and Khushi also thanked everyone who adores and admires their mom.

National Award jury head, Shekhar Kapur talked about how Sridevi had won the award fair and square.

The best actress is Sridevi for Mom and I promise you it is not my relationship with her. Every morning when I came here, I would ask everyone to vote once again. I would look at all the actors, talk about them and I would say, ‘there should be not Sridevi, not Sridevi’! We used take a vote and it always came back to Sridevi. It was me who fought that it shouldn’t be Sridevi. We are all emotionally involved with Sridevi. I used to say, ‘don’t give her an award because she died, it is unfair on the other girls. They have also worked hard for 10-12 years, they too have a career.

We agree with Janhvi and Boney ji, your legacy and your work will live on forever, Sridevi ji!
