OSNepal, Kathmandu, 16th April: The late Bollywood actress Sridevi was named the Best Actress posthumously, on 13th April, for her role as a vengeful mother in the Hindi film Mom. In the movie directed by Ravi Udyawar, Sridevi played a mother who sets out to avenge her step-daughter, essayed by Sajal Ali. The film also featured Adnan Siddiqui as Sridevi’s onscreen husband.
The legendary actor passed away in February in a Dubai hotel, leaving the film industry, her family members and legions of fans in a state of 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 movie had made parents more conscious about sending their children to parties and made several girls realise they need to be careful about the cars they sit in to return home late at night.
