Mr Kapoor added that there's a huge demand for Sridevi's movies in the southern film industry and that cine-goers are particularly looking forward to MOM. "One of India's biggest superstars of all time, Sridevi has completed over 50 years in the film industry and has a massive fan base. Her fans are eagerly anticipating her films and the distributors especially down south too have been supporting her films," IANS reported the filmmaker as saying.
July 7 has been booked as the release date of MOM, which is also reportedly the same date when Sridevi's debut film Kandhan Karunai hit screens. For the uninitiated, Sridevi was only four when she co-starred with Tamil star Sivaji Ganesan in the 1967 film.
MOM also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna in significant roles with Sridevi as the protagonist, who appears resolute to seek revenge for an unfortunate incident concerning her daughter.
Directed by Ravi Udyawar, MOM also casts Abhimanyu Singh and Pakistani actor Adnan Siddiqui in key roles.
