Delivering his address President Ram Nath Kovind said, “We miss them today and we will miss them forever. Their films like Lamhe and Mere Apne captured not only the box office but also the minds of the audience. When Vinod Khanna and Sridevi passed away, for millions of film lovers the loss seemed personal. Their fans and followers could be found all over the country, in every state and region.
