27 Dec – Khushi Kapoor previously attracted attention when she appeared at the premiere of "The Archies" in her mother's dress.

And now she finally shares why.


As reported on India Today, the actress, who is the youngest daughter of the late star Sridevi with filmmaker Boney Kapoor, earlier walked the red carpet at the premiere of the Netflix movie in a Kaufman Franco sequined gown worn by Sridevi ten years ago when she attended the IIFA.

Unlike her legendary mother, who wore her hair down and complemented the figure-hugging dress with diamond earrings, Khushi decided to wear a diamond choker and put her hair up during the premiere.

When asked why she decided to wear Sridevi's dress that day, Khushi said that she wanted her mother to be with her in some way.

"When it came down to the premiere, I didn't want to make any kind of fashion statement, it was an extremely big day for me. I was nervous, and in the week leading up to it, I had an idea. I wanted to wear something of hers, whether it was a piece of jewellery or a dress. I felt I needed some extra support that day," she said.

Khushi continued, "It is a big deal, I wanted her to be there with me in some way. So I went through some of the old clothes we have here and picked it out."

Sridevi passed away back in 2018 while she was in UAE to attend the wedding of her nephew, Mohit Marwah. The death was concluded as accidental drowning.
