Sridevi is in Europe shooting for her home production, Mom. The Hawa Hawai actress was last seen in “English Vinglish”. She just canned some tough action sequences along with co-stars Akshaye Khanna and Abhimanyu Singh.
Along with her husband and daughters, Sri is in Mestia, shooting in minus seven degrees. Sridevi called in for extra heaters since some crew members developed frost bite.
Abhimanyu informed Mirror that he plays a Jat with a criminal background. “For the action sequences with Akshaye in snow, the script demanded that I wear regular shoes instead of snow boots. Akshaye noticed that I had frostbite and requested director Ravi Udyawar to call ‘Cut’,” adding that the sun sets only around 8.30 pm and he’d been shooting all day in the snow till Ravi called it a day around 7.30 pm.
“Boney later gifted me branded shoes.”
Shooting began in Delhi on March 6 with Sridevi spotted on the SRCC campus which had been turned into Green Field School, as a teacher. The emotional drama revolves around the conflict between a stepmom and her 18-year-old daughter played by Pakistani actress Sajal Aly. Adnan Siddiqui, another Pakistani actor, is Sridevi’s husband and Sajal’s father. Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be seen in a cameo. The biggest casting coup was getting the nod from Akshaye, last seen in 2012 in the politi cal satire ‘Gali Gali Chor Hai’.
