98% of the Bollywood film industry came to pay their last respects to Sridevi, before she was cremated with state honours on February 28.
The Academy Awards honoured her by including a lovely picture of her in their ‘In Memoriam’ montage, which pays tribute to everyone the film industry has lost in the past year.
Along with Sridevi, Oscars also honoured Shashi Kapoor, whom we lost last year due to a chest infection.
Several Bollywood celebrities right from Varun Dhawan to Vidya Balan thanked the Oscars for this tribute to Sridevi.
Aamir Khan, who was present at a book launch earlier today, spoke about Sridevi and the mention at Oscars 2018. “My heart goes out to Boney and her children. It’s very saddening and untimely. She deserved the Oscar,” Aamir said at the event.
Aamir, who couldn’t attend Sridevi’s prayer meet on February 28 visited Boney’s residence yesterday (March 4) along with wife Kiran Rao to offer condolences.
