More than three months ago, Sridevi, that Chandni of Bollywood, left this world at the age of 54 years. Her husband and producer Boney Kapoor, like her millions of fans, is still not over her sudden departure. On what would have been their wedding anniversary, Boney posted a short video from Sridevi’s account, a montage of his moments with him, their family, and other loved ones.
He captioned the video, “Today would have been our 22nd wedding anniversary. Jaan… My wife, my soulmate, the epitome of love, grace , warmth and laughter lives within me forever…” Sridevi passed away on February 24 after a cardiac arrest. Her death sent shock waves across the film industry. Her contribution to world cinema was acknowledged in the Academy Award ceremony and Cannes Film Festival this year.
