24th February will mark the first death anniversary of late actress Sridevi and to commemorate this occasion, Boney Kapoor decided to put one of her beloved sarees for auction.
Reportedly, the Kapoors will be donating the proceedings to a charitable organization.
Sridevi's Kota saree's auction was hosted by Parisera and while the starting bid was Rs. 40,000, it reached Rs. 1.3 lakh.

Describing the six-yard Indian wear, the official website of Parisera mentioned, "Sridevi's styles have evolved since her early days in the film industry. But, the six yards has been a constant reminder of her roots."
The description added that Sridevi, a South-Indian, wore sarees as a "badge of her identity and has always infused a sense of unique charisma into its pleats."
