Shraddha Kapoor’s much talked film “Haseena” will clash with Sridevi’s mom on 14th July. Haseena has been under lights because it is based on the real-life story of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s Sister Haseena Parkar. The first look of the film in which Shraddha Kapoor looked bold and fearless in the role of Haseena was much appreciated by all.
Both the film releasing on the same date have the female actor in the lead.
After Judaai, Sridevi took a long break from the industry to look after her family as that came up as a priority to her. But, the story of English Vinglish compelled and excited her to come back on screen. Sridevi has done three films earlier with her husband Boney Kapoor and all of them have been the hits, including her last film as a comeback English Vinglish. Mom is their 4th collaboration.
Boney Kapoor said when he heard the storyline and the subject of Mom, he could only think of Sridevi in the role. After English Vinglish she had various offers, but she wasn’t interested. But the actress loved the story of Mom.
