Sridevi is making a comeback of sorts in Bollywood after a gap of five years. Her last film English Vinglish was well received by the audience, and going by the trailer of her upcoming film, Mom will be no different. With only a day left for the film’s release, Sridevi and husband Boney Kapoor organised a special screening.
Along with B-Town friends, her two daughter Jhanvi Kapoor was also in attendance. And it is no secret that Jhanvi is all set to make her Bollywood debut soon with The Fault In Our Stars remake.
When asked how she reacted after watching the film, Sridevi told Times of India, “My younger one, Khushi, hasn’t seen the movie. She has seen some parts and has loved it. But Janhvi saw the whole movie. Her first reaction was that she came up to me and just hugged me.”
“She couldn’t speak. It was overwhelming. And I felt nice about it. I was happy that the film had really moved her,” added the 53-year-old actor.
Mom is the story of Devki (Sridevi), who has a seemingly perfect family, with a loving husband and two daughters. However, all is not well between her and her elder daughter Arya, and an unfortunate incident further drives a wedge between them. It comes to a point where she has to make a choice between what is wrong and very wrong.
Directed by Ravi Udyawar, the film is set to hit the screens on July 7.
