Sridevi Kapoor: Bollywood star wins acting gong posthumously
Bollywood actress Sridevi Kapoor, who died in February, has been awarded posthumously India's National Film Award for Best Actress. Actor and politician Vinod Khanna, who died last year, was also honoured, with India's highest film prize, the Dadasaheb Phalke award. The families of both famed actors attended the 65th annual ceremony in New Delhi to accept the awards. "Sridevi would have been very happy today," her widower Boney Kapoor told Indian media on receiving the accolade. Sridevi had already won six awards for her final role, which was as a vigilante seeking revenge for her step-daughter's gang rape.
