Mom is an upcoming Indian thriller film directed by Ravi Udyawar and produced by Boney Kapoor, Sunil Manchanda, Mukesh Talreja , Naresh Agarwal and Gautam Jain. The film stars Sridevi, Akshaye Khanna and Abhimanyu Singh in the main cast and a special appearance will be made by Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Pakistani actors Sajal Ali and Adnan Siddiqui will also be playing crucial roles.
The film is slated to release on 14 July 2017.
It was announced in early 2016 that Sridevi would be starring next in Boney Kapoor’s woman-centric home-production titled Mom to be directed by Ravi Udyawar. Nawazuddin Siddiqui was cast to play a important role in the film and the actor revealed that it was a dream come true for him to work with Sridevi. Subsequently Akshaye Khanna and Pakistani actors Sajal Ali and Adnan Siddiqui were cast in crucial roles. A. R. Rahman was signed to compose the music of Mom.
The first spell of film was shot in New Delhi in March 2016 around locations of Shri Ram College of Commerce in Delhi University and Noida Film City. Following this, Mom was shot in an extensive schedule in Mestia, Georgia. The crew shot in freezing conditions of minus seven degrees for over two months. Despite the challenging climactic environment, the schedule was successfully wrapped up. Shooting resumed once more in March 2017 and the last leg of the film was completed in Bangkok.
The First Look of Mom was unveiled at the Zee Cine Awards 2017 by Salman Khan who hailed Sridevi on stage as “a bigger star than the Khans”. The actress made the First Look public on Twitter which went viral. Subsequently the Teaser of Mom clocked 1.2 million views on YouTube on the first day itself. It also met with a positive response in Pakistan.
The teaser starts with catchy music and some seconds later Sridevi’s intense looks will make you feel like this is not a regular thriller. The tone of trailer changes soon and it becomes darker and grittier.
And also, good luck spotting Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the footage. He looks completely unrecognizable in his new avatar.
Recently, the motion poster of the movie with a voice over from Nawazuddin was also unveiled. Helmed by Ravi Udyawar, the film also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna in important roles.
