Sridevi has been posthumously awarded the Best Actress award for Mom.

"My director and co-actors made it so easy for me to act in this film", the Gangs of Wasseypur actor said. In a statement, Pankaj Tripathi said: "I am absolutely delighted".

"I just heard about it is it true?" I would look at all the actors, talk about them and I would say, "there should be not Sridevi, not Sridevi"!
