Sridevi's husband Boney Kapoor collected the late star's Best Actress prize at the International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA), held in Bangkok on Sunday night. Sridevi won Best Actress (posthumously) for her role in 2017 film MOM, in which she played the role of a mother seeking revenge for her daughter's rape. For the same film, she was honoured with her first ever National Award this April. "She was the queen of grace and worthy of every praise. There's no doubt the award for performance in a leading role female posthumously goes to late Sridevi," read a post tweeted by IIFA's Twitter account. Actress Kriti Sanon gave away Sridevi's Best Actress trophy to Boney Kapoor.

Her daughter Janhvi is awaiting the release of her debut film Dhadak. She also has a younger daughter Khushi.

Meanwhile, Irrfan Khan won the prize for Best Actor in a leading role for Hindi Medium, in which he played the role of a father, who tries hard to get his daughter enrolled in a prestigious school.
