The 19th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards took place on June 24 in Bangkok. The evening saw a spectacular melange of glitz and glamour with Bollywood’s crème de la crème, global dignitaries and world media in attendance at the reputed Siam Niramit Theatre. But, it was also an emotional night for the Kapoor family as the late actress Sridevi was honoured at the awards ceremony. Producer Boney Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor were present to receive the honour.
Boney Kapoor accepted the Best Actress award on behalf of his late wife and legendary actress Sridevi for her role in 2017 crime thriller, Mom. Sridevi, who passed away on February 24 in Dubai, was honoured posthumously. On stage, Boney Kapoor could not hold back his tears as he accepted the award. “I miss her every moment of my life,” Boney said as he wiped his tears.
Earlier this year, Sridevi was felicitated posthumously with the Best Actress award for Mom at 65th National Film Awards held in New Delhi.
