The National Award winners were announced last month, when the world cheered for Sridevi's first ever National Award win and this what Mr Kapoor had to say: "She might not be among us anymore but her talent, work and memory will live on. Sri was and always will be a shining star in the sky. I know this recognition and this award would mean a lot to her, it surely means a lot to us. So, thank you."
Anil Kapoor and Sridevi famously co-starred in films like Laadla, Jaanbaaz, Judaai and Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja but the Shekhar Kapur-directed Mr India remains their most popular movie so far. Sridevi was cast as Seema, a feisty reporter, while Anil Kapoor played violinist Arun who's in charge of a house full of orphans. The name of the film was inspired by one-half of Anil Kapoor's onscreen character - Arun turned into an invisible vigilante by night.
