Sri, Sri Ma’am: Some of the titles Boney Kapoor registers for Sridevi documentary


It was on February 16 this year, while Sridevi was very much alive among us, that news broke of a Bangalore fan club that was creating a special documentary to mark the 53-year-old actress’s golden jubilee in films. The five-part docu-drama series was pegged to feature her life and achievements in films.

It had been revealed that the co-founders of the club had already had several meetings with Boney Kapoor, Sridevi’s filmmaker husband and shared their plans for their project. The hour-long films would combine archival footage, and interviews with Sri’s co-stars from the South film industries as well as Bollywood, and family. Also included would be Sridevi’s interviews in magazines and her hit magazine covers from the Eighties.

Barely a week after the news of the upcoming documentary, the actress tragically passed away due to accidental drowning on February 24 this year in Dubai.

The titles that have been reportedly registered include Sri, Sridevi and Sri Ma’am amongst others.

Sources reveal that Boney is very serious about making a film on Sridevi and has hence registered these titles.
