Sridevi's Award from Cannes 2018

Well, I hope Subash Ghai delivers this trophy to Boney Kapoor and family. Yet another accolade for Sridevi awarded posthumously.

May 2018

"Sridevi was posthumously honoured at the 71st Cannes Film Festival. Filmmaker Subhash Ghai, who received the award on her behalf, says he felt honoured.

Sridevi was honoured with the TITAN Reginald F. Lewis Film Icon Award, which celebrates women of the film industry all over the world and also salutes the multicultural impact on the film industry.

Ghai shared a few photographs of himself while receiving the award on Twitter and captioned it: "It was honour to receive the award on behalf of legend Sridevi Kapoor at Cannes Film Festival yesterday for her outstanding contribution in Indian cinema and shared my experience with impeccable inimitable actor to western audience hosted by Titan Reginald F. Lewis film honours."

Sridevi's producer husband Boney Kapoor said he and his daughters Janhvi and Khushi were overwhelmed with the recognition, tributes and love that the actress has been showered with.

"Her work and life has touched so many hearts across the world and she has been an inspiration to millions. She will live forever, thanks to her body of work," Boney said in a statement.

Sridevi in February died due to accidental drowning in a Dubai hotel. She was feted with a posthumous National Film Award for Best Actress in appreciation of her performance in her last released film "Mom"."

Sridevi on the sets of Farishtay (1991). Despite a huge star cast and directed by Anil Sharma (who went on to make blockbuster Gaddar), this was a huge flop. And famously the movie's producer Sattee Shourie slapped the director of the film during its production - google Lehrein clip regarding the incident as it was much talked about in the early '90s!
