One of the biggest and highly acclaimed award ceremonies is certainly the Oscars and the whole of Bollywood and Hollywood waits for it with baited breath.
Bollywood and Hollywood has a huge connection with each other with crossover films being appreciated both ways.
With Oscars that was telecast in the wee hours paid tribute to Bollywood’s two legends that we lost lately, Sridevi and Shashi Kapoor and the audience just couldn’t hold back their tears.
Sridevi who just passed last week, her demise hasn’t sank in most of the B-town and family and friends, with Oscar paying tribute to her it was a moment of silence at the auditorium.
Others who featured in the section include JAMES BOND star Roger Moore, Mary Goldberg and Johan Johansson, John Heard and Sam Shephard. American rock band Pearl Jam's lead vocalist Eddie Vedder performed Tom Petty’s ROOM AT THE TOP during In Memoriam montage.
Sridevi breathed her last in Dubai and was given state honors with her body wrapped in the tricolour and a gun salute by the Mumbai police. The actor started out as a child artiste and went on to become the first female superstar of the Indian film industry. She worked in and conquered Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi films with her acting prowess, comic timing and ethereal dancing skills.
After the tribute B-town remembered her again and with moist-eyes posted on their social media how much they miss Sridevi and thanked Oscar’s for the tribute!
