The untimely demise of veteran actress Sridevi left a void in the film industry and in the lives of her family members which cannot be filled. The actress passed away after accidentally drowning in a bathtub at a Dubai hotel on February 24. During that period, her elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor was shooting for her debut movie Dhadak, which was Sridevi's dream.
August 13 marks the birth anniversary of the veteran actress after her death and in order to honour her contribution to Indian cinema, Bollywood Art Project is creating an 18x18 feet tall mural in Bandra, Mumbai. The artistes are planning to complete it before her birthday but rain may play a spoilsport.
Husband Boney Kapoor spoke to Pinkvilla on the eve of her birth anniversary and expressed gratitude. He said, ''There are heroes and then there are legends, heroes get remembered but legends never die. Sri lives with us every day… not a minute goes by when we don’t miss her''.
Earlier, on their 22nd anniversary, the film Producer shared a compilation of short clips featuring Sridevi and wrote, ''Today would have been our 22nd wedding anniversary. Jaan... My wife, my soulmate, the epitome of love, grace, warmth and laughter lives within me forever...”
