"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," read the statement, news agency PTI reported.
"Thank you. I just wish she was here today to see this," Boney Kapoor said while Sridevi's brother-in-law Anil Kapoor (also his co-stars of several films) tweeted this:
