Seasoned Bollywood actress Sridevi’s sudden demise on the fateful night of 24th February, 2018, came as a shocker to everyone. While fans are still trying to come to terms with the fact that the Chandni star is no more with us, her husband, Boney Kapoor, is finding it extremely difficult to accept the tragedy that befell him almost three months.

We all know how much Boney loved Sridevi. He was always with her like her shadow. To overcome the loss of his wife, the filmmaker is doing every possible thing under the sun. Recently, there were reports that he has registered some titles to make a film on the late actress’ life and now we hear that he is also planning to set up a museum in the fond memory of the late actress.

“Right now, he is going through a period of tremendous churning. So far he was immersed in coming to terms with his loss, making sure his daughters are not wounded irreparably by the sudden loss of their mother. Now when things have settled down, Boney looks at a life of loneliness and emptiness ahead. He cries at the mention of her name. You have to understand, Sridevi was his reason to live, the inspiration for every day to be exciting. Boney has a lot of ideas on how he would like to immortalise his wife’s memories. A documentary is there. There is also a museum of mementoes, memorabilia, and souvenirs that Boney plans to open. And Sonam was heard expressing a wish to do an authorised biography of Sridevi Ji. So there is a whole lot of motivation to enshrine her memory in various formats,” a source reveals.

The late actress, who was conferred National Award for Best Actress for her film Mom recently, will be seen in a cameo in Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero. That will be her last appearance in a film.
