After stunning the world with her comeback performance in Gauri Shinde’s ‘English Vinglish’ in 2012, the very versatile Sridevi is back with yet another film titled ‘Mom’. The film has been directed by Ravi Udyawar and produced by Boney Kapoor. Unveiling the very mysterious poster on her Twitter account on Tuesday, Sridevi confirmed that she will be seen playing the role of a mother in her next film too.

As the poster suggests, Sridevi is in the leading role and the caption reads, “When a woman is challenged… Here’s presenting the first look of MOM”.
But neither the actress nor the film’s associations have revealed any story line, the plot is still unknown. Actors Akshaye Khanna, Abhimanyu Singh, Pitobash Tripathi are co-starring Sridevi while Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be appearing in a cameo role in the film.
However, the film’s production wasn’t an easy one. Since two Pakistani actors Adnan Siddiqui and Sajal Ali were playing important roles as Sridevi’s husband and daughter in the film, the makers faced several issues in the backdrop of the call to ban Pakistani artistes in the film industry. However, the film is finally up for a good start now.
In the poster, we see Sridevi’s not-a-typical-glamorous look in black clothes. Her looks surely confirm that the audience should expect another incredible performance from her. The poster not only reveals the title ‘Mom’, which is written in several languages and forms, hooking us for some serious mystery ahead.
This is the third film in which the 53-year-old actress has collaborated with husband Boney Kapoor after Shekhar Kapur’s 1987 blockbuster Mr. India and Satish Kaushik’s 1993 disaster Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja. Her last film ‘English Vinglish’ was a journey of shattering some serious stereotypes in Bollywood and had a powerful message for the society we belong to. She was also seen in a Tamil movie titled ‘Puli’ which bombed in the box-office.

Now, Dawn.com reports that Sridevi will play a lawyer in Mom.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui had told the media some time ago, “I was blown away by the thriller’s script. Most of my scenes are with Srideviji. In my opinion, she is the best actress in the country. I have seen so many of her films, and Sadma and Chandni are my all-time favourites,” Pinkvilla reported.
Karan Johar also tweeted:
