65th National Film Awards: Sridevi wins Best Actress Award posthumously for MOM

65th National Awards Winners List Sridevi Rajkummar Rao's Newton Vinod Khanna Taapsee Pannu's Ghazi Win Laurels

Jury Chairman Shekhar Kapur acknowledged the big strides that regional cinema, he said, "Bollywood films can not compete with these regional films, not at the state in which they are".

Sridevi, who died aged 54 in February, was posthumously named Best Actress for her role as Devki Dabarwal in thriller Mom at the 65th Annual National Film Awards, which were announced yesterday. Every morning when I came here, I would ask everyone to vote once again. Ecstatic by this, the Newton actor says, "I am absolutely delighted". She took a break from the silver screen and came back nearly after 17 years with the movie "English Vinglish". It was me who fought that it shouldn't be Sridevi. Sridevi's husband and producer Boney Kapoor said that he isn't sure whether to laugh or cry in this situation. "But I am saddened that she got the award when she is not here today". They recently released a statement to the media wherein they left a heartfelt message expressing their gratitude and celebrating Sridevi's hard work.

Director of the film, Ravi Udayawar, in regards to the win has stated: "She deserves it". "You can't really decide how people will respond to your film as it's an artform that can be interpreted and appreciated differently". India's official entry to the Academy Awards previous year, Amit Masurkar's black comedy Newton, was named the Best Hindi Film.

Her Mom co-star, Pakistani actor Adnan Siddiqui, told PTI, "I am not surprised, she deserved more".

The philosopher and cultural critic George Santayana had noted that there was no cure for birth and death save to enjoy the interval and for us, Sridevi did just that - she made the interval a thing of joy.

Her role in "Mom" was close to Sridevi's heart. She continued delivering hits like a series of blockbusters, such as Nagina, Mr India, Chandni, Lamhe and Chaalbaaz in the Hindi film industry while she also worked in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada movies.
