New Delhi, Nov 11: Today is a special day for producer Boney Kapoor as it is his 63rd birthday. Boney Kapoor was surrounded by his family members as he ringed in his 63rd birthday on Sunday. However, it must also be a sad day for him and his entire family as this is Boney's first birthday since his wife, iconic actress Sridevi, died earlier this year in Dubai much to the shock of the family, the film fraternity and her millions of fans.
Veteran actress Sridevi, 54, passed away on February 24 in Dubai and her death sent shock wave all across the country. The late actress would have turned 55 on August 13th. Her sudden death left a big vacuum in the film industry which will always be difficult to fill.
The entire nation mourned soon after her sudden death and she was given state honours by the Maharashtra government.
Born in Sivakasi in Tamil Nadu on August 13, 1963, Sridevi began her career at the age of four in the devotional film "Thunaivan". That marked the beginning of a journey in filmdom that saw her work across Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi productions, leading her to become one of the most formidable actresses of the 1980s and 1990s in Bollywood -- in fact, the only female "superstar" the industry has seen.She is remembered for her performances in some of the iconic Bollywood films like "Mr. India", "Nagina", "Sadma", "ChalBaaz", "Chandni", "Khuda Gawah", among many others in different Indian languages.Sridevi, who made a comeback to Bollywood in 2012 with "English Vinglish" after a long break of 15 years, was last seen in "Mom" in 2017.
Sridevi used to live in a posh apartment Green Acres in Mumbai. The actress has decorated her home in the most beautiful way. Sridevi used to live there along with her two beautiful daughter Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor and husband Boney Kapoor.
Sridevi had very big dreams for her elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor was sort of a mentor for her. She groomed her beautiful so that her foray in the film industry was perfect and flawless. But, unfortunately after all her hard work, she could not see Janhvi make her debut. Janhvi had a successful debut with Dhadak.
Janhvi was extremely close with her mom and used to remain inseparable from her. Janhvi disclosed a few days back that even at this age she used to be fed by her mom. When Sridevi's body arrived from Dubai to India, Janhvi and Khushi cried inconsolably and Sonam came forward to console the two sisters.
Boney still finds it hard to live without Sridevi.
