Imagine falling in love with someone so hard that you forget the world, and defying all the odds, take a plunge and get married to them. This was the love story of Boney Kapoor and Sridevi. Despite being married and having two kids, Boney had fallen in love with the veteran actress, late Sridevi and had married her. In June 1996, Boney and Sridevi had tied the knot, promising each other to be together forever. However, with Sridevi’s sudden death in February 2018, many of their dreams were left unfulfilled. On Sridevi’s fourth death anniversary, Boney Kapoor recalled the one wish that never got complete.
On December 11, 2021, Boney Kapoor had shared his first-ever picture with his wife and iconic actress, late Sridevi on his IG handle. The monochrome picture was clicked in 1982, and while on one side, Sridevi was seen in a traditional Rajasthani folk costume, on the other side, Boney had looked handsome in a shirt and pants. The picture was from the time when Boney and Sridevi had met during a film's shoot at the iconic Natraj Studios. Along with the priceless picture, Boney had written:
"First picture with my wife, September 1984 at Natraj studios."
A few hours back, taking to his IG handle, Boney Kapoor shared a picture with his late wife, Sridevi from their short visit to Venice. In the picture, the two can be seen sitting in a boat and posing for the camera. Sharing the photo from 2008, Boney penned an emotional note and recalled the one wish he and Sridevi never got to complete as destiny had other plans. He wrote:
“We drove from Milan to Venice on 7th September 2008 & spent just a few hours in the city , we had made plans of visiting Venice again for longer stay but destiny denied our plans ……….”
In 2018, after performing the last rites of Sridevi in Rameshwaram, Boney Kapoor had tweeted an emotional note for his late wife. He had called her his love, friend and mother to their daughters, Janhvi and Khushi. An excerpt from his tweet could be read as:
“Losing a friend, wife and mother of your two daughters is a loss inexplicable in words... I am blessed to have the support and love of Arjun and Anshula, who have been such pillars of strength for myself, Khushi and Janhvi. Together, as a family, we have tried to face this unbearable loss. To the world, she was their Chandni... the actor par excellence... their Sridevi... but to me, she was my love, my friend, mother to our girls... my partner. To our daughters, she was their everything... their life. She was the axis around which our family ran."
In a throwback interview with the Filmfare, Boney Kapoor had once opened up about his obsession with his wife, late Sridevi. The producer had mentioned that his wife's 'innocence' had won him. The doting husband had also added that his wife was an extremely humble person despite being such a megastar, and it was one of the many qualities that had made him fall in love with her. He had said:
"Basically, Sri's an introvert. Her job done, she'd keep to herself. But what impressed me was her innocence. She was not corrupted by artifice. Mere dil ko woh gherti chali gayee. My obsession for her only grew each time I met her. She was so simple despite being a superstar."
