Sridevi wins Best Actress National Award posthumously
The actor played a mother who sets out to avenge her step-daughter in Mom
The late actor Sridevi was named the Best Actress at the National Awards posthumously for her role as a vengeful mother in the Hindi film Mom. In the film directed by Ravi Udyawar, Sridevi played a mother who sets out to avenge her step-daughter, essayed by Pakistani actress Sajal Ali.
Sridevi died in February in a Dubai hotel, leaving the film industry, her family members and fans in shock.
In an earlier interview, Sridevi had said she was proud to be a part of a film like Mom, and the reactions it elicited. She was especially happy that the film had made parents more conscious about sending their children to parties at farmhouses and made several girls realise to be careful about the car they sit in to return home late at night.
"People reacted very well and I felt good about it," she had said.
