Revathi's recent Hindi directorial Salaam Venky will stream on ZEE5 from February 10. The film, a slice-of-life drama, stars Kajol and Vishal Jethwa along with a special appearance by Aamir Khan. It was released in theatres last year. 

Salaam Venky follows a mother, Sujata (Kajol), whose teenage son is diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). The film follows Sujata as she tries to facilitate his last wish for euthanasia. It is based on the biographical book The Last Hurrah by Shrikant Murthy. 

Talking about the film's digital premiere, Kajol says, “Shooting for Salaam Venky was an emotional experience for me. Being a mother of two, I could resonate with Sujata's character on a personal level. When your child or closed one is in pain, he or she doesn't suffer alone it's you who finds it difficult to cope with those heartbreaking moments of life. 

It's tough to be "brave" or "strong" no matter how much you try to hold your emotions together. At such times, one needs to keep the faith and believe in miracles. After Salaam Venky, all I have learnt is that Life is uncertain so don't spend your time worrying about the future or living in the past. Live your life to the fullest. I feel proud for being recognised for such a meaningful film and I am glad my fans will get to watch it once again on ZEE5.”
