Reacting to the announcement of Cannes intending to honour Sridevi, Boney had earlier said, “I’m happy that people from the world over are recognising her body of work and her contribution to cinema. Even though the overwhelming emptiness of losing her remains, it’s comforting to know that she lives on through her work.”
Recently, Sridevi received Best Actress Award at the National Film Awards this year for her performance in Mom, which was her 300th film at the 65th National Film Awards.
