Sridevi unveils first look poster of ‘Mom’; social media applauds her


The ever-gorgeous actress Sridevi has unveiled her first look poster on Tuesday (March 14). “When a woman is challenged...Here's presenting the first look of MOM," the 53-year-old actress, who plays the lead role in the film, tweeted while sharing the poster.

The poster is quite intriguing and has the actress wrapped in a shawl, standing sideways. She has an intense and determined expression on her face. The poster is made ‘arty’ with the word ‘Mom’ written in different languages. It also reveals the release date of the move, on July 14, 2017.

‘Mom’ is being directed by Ravi Udyawar and produced by Sridevi's husband Boney Kapoor. The movie also stars Akshaye Khanna, Abhimanyu Singh and Pitobash Tripath, while Nawazuddin Siddiqui will also make a cameo appearance in a key role. It also has Pakistani actors Adnan Siddiqui and Sajal Ali in important roles, for which the film faced trouble when there a ban was imposed on Pakistani artiste and technicians working in Indian films last year.

Sridevi made a comeback to films after nearly fifteen years with Gauri Shinde’s debut directorial ‘English Vinglish’, which was critically acclaimed. She then appeared in the Tamil fantasy film ‘Puli’.  

The first look of ‘Mom’ is receiving lots of appreciation on social media from fans, movie buffs and celebrities too.

Filmmaker Karan Johar revealed that ‘Mom’ was his ‘favourite’ actress’ 300th film. “Her 300th film....50 year career....my favourite actor....SRIDEVI.....in and as.....,” Karan tweeted while sharing the poster.
