All eyes were on the Kapoor family -- Boney, Janhvi and Khushi -- as they stepped on stage to receive the National award for late actor Sridevi at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi.

As President Ram Nath Kovind presented the best actress award posthumously for Sridevi's performance in Mom, one couldn't help notice what Janhvi was wearing.

A few hours earlier, designer Manish Malhotra shared a post on Instagram congratulating the late actor.

He also mentioned the special sari Janhvi was wearing to the 65th National Awards Ceremony.
