On the occasion of her birth anniversary, husband Boney Kapoor spoke exclusively to ETimes and took a walk down the memory lane. He also spilled the beans on wishing his ‘jaan’ as he fondly calls her, at night along with their daughters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor.

Speaking about it, Boney said, “We all wished her at night, we lit a deeya (diya) in her memory. I wish she was here to see Janhvi getting so much appreciation for her film. I know she is always with me, guiding and blessing Janhvi and Khushi.”

The ‘Maidaan’ producer also spoke about how he first met Sridevi in 1984 and eventually got married in 1996. He said, “I first met her 36 years back (1984) while working with her on ‘Mr. India’ got totally besotted by her and fell in love with her completely. By the time we finished shooting our second film (‘Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja’), she too had the same feelings & finally, we got married in 1996.”

Earlier, Boney Kapoor had posted on his Twitter handle, a heartwarming note remembering his wife on her special day. Along with two doting throwback pictures of her, he wrote, “Jaan missing you lots every second of the 900 days you left us, but more so today to see the joy on your face for the good reaction to Janu’s work in Gunjan, I wish you were here with us, our joy is incomplete without you. Happy birthday my love my life. #HappyBirthdaySridevi.”
