Zee Studios & Boney Kapoor's MOM headlined by megastar Sridevi is one of the most anticipated films this year.

After pulling off a casting coup with powerhouse performers, Sridevi, Akshaye Khanna and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in primary roles ,the makers also announced that the film's music will be composed by maestro AR Rahman. The film also stars Adnan Siddiqui, who worked with Angelina Jolie and Dan Futterman in the critically acclaimed 2007 film, A Mighty Heart.

What's interesting about his casting , is that it was Sridevi's daughter Jhanvi Kapoor ,who suggested Adnan‘s name for the film. Says a source, "Jhanvi really admires Adnan's work and loved him in A Mighty Heart. They convinced the actor to do a look test and producer Boney Kapoor then immediately got in touch with his team and closed the deal. Adnan Siddiqui essays the role of Sridevi’s husband in the film".
