On the occasion of Sridevi’s first birth anniversary since her unfortunate demise, earlier this year, the Information & Broadcasting Ministry is playing out some of the actress’ finest work. The veteran actress’ films will be screened at the Films Division in the capital tomorrow and day after, ie, on August 13 and 14.
The first film to be screened is Mom, the actress’ last cine outing. Boney Kapoor’s wife received the Best Actress Award, posthumously, for this film, at the 65th National Awards. The screening time for Mom is 11:30 am, at the Films Division in New Delhi. This screening will be followed by Lamhe, that will be shown at 7:00 pm at the same venue. On August 14, Sridevi’s films English Vinglish, Sadma and Chandni will be screened.
That’s not all, to mark Sridevi’s birthday, the Bollywood Art Project is building an 18 feet tall mural of the actress on a building wall on Chapel Road, Bandra, Mumbai. A bunch of artists will be recreating Sridevi’s look from her hit film, Gurudev. At the time of going online, Boney Kapoor was busy packing his bags for Delhi. The filmmaker will be attending the retrospective in his (late) wife’s honor.
