Recently, Sridevi was also posthumously honoured with the TITAN Reginald F Lewis Film Icon Award at 2019 Cannes Film Festival. The award traditionally celebrates women of the film industry all over the world and also salute the multi-cultural impact on the world of cinema.
In February last year, all of India and the film industry woke up to the shocking news of Sridevi's untimely death in Dubai. The late actor was in the Gulf nation for the wedding of her husband's nephew. She died due to accidental drowning in the bathtub. The actor's funeral procession in Mumbai later was attended by thousands of her grieving fans.
The news left the family completely shattered. A few days after Sridevi's death, Janhvi wrote a heart-wrenching post on her mother.
She had written: "There's a gnawing hollowness in my chest that I know I'll have to learn to live with. Even with all this emptiness, I still feel your love. I feel you protecting me from sadness and pain. Every time I close my eyes, I only have good things to remember. I know it's you doing that. You were a blessing in all our lives, we were blessed to have had you for as long as we did. But, you were for this world. You were too good, too pure, too full of love. That's why he took you back. But at least we had you."
