Janhvi Kapoor tries to react on Sridevi winning National Award but gets overwhelmed (watch video)

Sridevi’s sudden demise shocked the entire industry. It has been more than two months now and we still don’t know how to react to this unfortunate event. Imagine what must be the plight of her husband Boney Kapoor and daughters Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor. Recently, Sri was presented with best actress title at the coveted National Awards posthumously for her contribution to her last movie Mom. Her husband and daughters were in the capital to receive it on her behalf. Boney was visibly emotional while he accepted the certificate from The President. Janhvi Kapoor was approached by press to share her feelings about the same. She thanked everyone for the award and also spoke how special the film Mom was for her mother. Boney tried to nudge her more to talk but she was unable to do so. She told press that she does not want to discuss the topic further.
