In the third week of June 2017, Sridevi was in Chennai to promote her upcoming thriller Mom, which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna.
Mom is Sridevi's first Hindi film in five years after the critical and commercial hit English Vinglish, directed by Gauri Shinde. It is also being dubbed into Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
Mom is an important milestone for Sridevi — it's said to be her 300th film, and marks her 50th year in the industry. It is being produced by husband Boney Kapoor, while Ravi Udyawar makes his directorial debut with this film. It’s been a long journey since Sridevi started as a child artiste in Tamil and Telugu films 50 years ago. And then she ruled south cinema, and Hindi films in the '70s and '80s. Now she is back with Mom...
“The plot of Mom is what attracted me. As a real-life mother to two kids who are growing up, I could connect with Ravi’s story emotionally.
The film is all about a relationship between a mother and her teenage daughter, the values and special bond that they share. My instinct tells me that it will work at the box-office” ; said Sridevi according to a source.The movie is going to hit the silver screen on 7th of july 2017.
