Quietly, Sridevi has started shooting for her new film entitled Mom, in Delhi. The film, directed by debutant Ravi Udywar, features Sridevi as a stepmom in conflict with her 18-year old daughter.
In the meanwhile, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and surprisingly, Akshaye Khanna have joined the cast of Mom. Akshaye has not appeared in any film since the political satire Gali Gali Chor Hai bombed in 2012.
Says a source, "Sridevi's husband Boney Kapoor, who produces Mom, personally requested Akshaye to make a comeback. He has a terrific role in Mom."
Neither Nawazuddin nor Akshaye Khanna have ever shared screen space with the one and only Sridevi.
The shooting of the film commenced quietly in Delhi on 6th March.
