Producer Boney Kapoor still finds it tough to come to terms with the death of his wife and actress Sridevi and says it is impossible to forget her. Boney broke down while talking about her in film trade analyst Komal Nahta's talk show Aur Ek Kahani.
The producer shared his plight on the talk show and said: "There has to be someone who understands that I haven't used my money for a wrong purpose... I haven't lost it in a gamble or a race and I am aware of my mistake.
"In this case, if you do not have support at home, support from wife, that support you can't find in anything."
Sridevi passed away on February 24, 2018, due to accidental drowning in a Dubai hotel.
