It will be a special evening of memories, anecdotes, and visual footage of her best performances.
Expressing his gratitude towards the special salute, Boney Kapoor told Hindustan Times, "I'm happy that people from the world over are recognising her body of work and her contribution to cinema. Even though the overwhelming emptiness of losing her remains, its comforting to know that she lives on through her work."
