One of the most memorable films last year was Sajal Aly’s Bollywood debut, Mom, alongside Adnan Siddiqui and the legendary Sridevi. The film went on to become a huge hit, but due to the ever-present Pak-India tension, our actors were not able to enjoy the fame in all its glory. However, Sridevi has praised her co-stars and shown immense love for Sajal at multiple instances, and the recently held Zee Cine Awards were no different
While accepting the award for Best Actor (female) Sri Devi gave a special mention to her co-stars. “Mom is a film I’m extremely emotional about,” she said. “I would like to thank the entire cast and crew of the movie. Nawazuddin ji, Akshaye, Adnan Siddiqui ji, Sajal, my child, I love you and I miss you too.”
Sajal shared the video of her on-screen mom accepting the award on her Instagram, writing “CONGRATULATIONS I love you too MOM”.
It’s nice to see Sri Devi acknowledging our stars when Indian media seems to have completely blacked them out.
