Sridevi will play a mother on a mission in her next, ‘Mom’, directed by Ravi Udyawar. What makes this outing truly special for the Padma Shri laureate, whose career spans 50 years, is the fact that it is her 300th film.  The actress will play the title role in the movie, which also stars Akshaye Khanna and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in pivotal roles. AR Rahman has composed the soundtrack for the film that is produced by ZEE Studios, Sunil Manchanda, Naresh Agarwal, Mukesh Talreja, Gautam Jain and Boney Kapoor.   With the trailer of the film garnering a lot of appreciation, not only in India but overseas as well, the makers are optimistic about its box-office run.  Boney says, “Sridevi wanted her 300th film to be truly special with a meaningful, performance-oriented role, which is equally entertaining. The fact that the trailer has left everyone intrigued means that we are on the right path. The audiences have never seen her in a film which has emotions, intrigue and thrill of this kind.” Director Ravi adds, “Sridevi was my first and only choice for the film. No one else could have played this role, but her. Directing her was a dream come true and a huge learning experience.” Sujay Kutty of Zee Studios sums it up, saying, “Mom has a universal theme that resonates worldwide. It’s relevant to the times we live in.”  Mom, presented by Zee Studios and Boney Kapoor, a MAD Films and NA Films production, releases on July 7 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.  The Times  of  India ; 6th.
