Couple of days has been pretty tough for Boney Kapoor and his family as Sridevi has passed away so suddenly. It has been quite a shock for them. It is believed that the bond between Salman Khan and Sridevi’s family is too strong. Salman and Sridevi are both interested in art especially painting. Therefore, they have bonded really well. Salman Khan has done a lot of movies with Sridevi’s Husband Boney Kapoor also such as No Entry. Couple of movies has been done Sridevi and Salman together. Following to the acceptance of her painting at an international art auction, Boney Kapoor has said in the year 2010, “After me and the kids, painting is her main passion. Now her paintings have reached a level of professionalism where they can fetch a handsome price”
Previously, Sridevi has even gifted Salman a portrait of the actor that has been made by her. It is said that Salman has motivated the Chaalbaaz actress to paint once again and work on her passion. Reason behind Salman not posting anything following to the death of Sridevi is quite simple. Being a private person, Salman has thought that it would not be appropriate about the death. Therefore, he has gone to meet the family in person at Lokhandwala residence after mortal remains of the actor has been brought to Mumbai from Dubai. Loss of a friend is kind of feeling that cannot be shared easily.
Sridevi’s work has been praised by Tiger Zinda Hai actress quite a lot. Introducing Sridevi while giving away the award for “Star of The Millenium” at Zee Cine Aawards, Salman Khan has said “Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, and I have all done many films. Aamir may have done about 50 films – as he does only one film per year; Shah Rukh may have done more than 100 films. Put together, we may have all done about 250-275 films. But amidst us stands a legend who has done over 300 films in different languages. She can be a mother, she can be a child, a singer, dancer and even a Charlie Chaplin. God alone knows how she has managed to do what she has done. But she has done it, and I am talking about none other than Sridevi.”
On the occasion, lady has been awarded for her contribution to Indian over five decades.
