With Mom, Sridevi will return to the big screen five years after English Vinglish (2012). Here she essays the role of Devki, while Pakistani actor Sajal Ali plays her daughter. The film also stars Akshaye Khanna and an unrecognisable Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Mom, presented by Zee Studios and Boney Kapoor, marks ad filmmaker Ravi Udyawar’s directorial debut.
The film centres on the strained mother-daughter relationship of Devki and Arya. Nawazuddin Siddiqui has undergone a makeover to portray the role of DK (Dayashankar Kapoor). He sports thick glasses, a bald pate and dentures. The intriguing trailer was enough to spark interest, yet when asked about the plot at the trailer launch in Mumbai, the cast and crew did not divulge any details.
Mom has been dubbed in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam apart from Hindi and will release on July 7 in all four languages.
