Mom is a hard-hitting film, and Sridevi is its USP: Producer Boney Kapoor
“Sridevi is one of the USPs of the film but also I think Akshaye Khanna, Nawazuddin and the rest of the actors of the film also played an equally important role to narrate the story,” said producer Boney Kapoor.bollywood Updated: Jun 03, 2017 18:19 IST
Film producer Boney Kapoor, who produced the upcoming film Mom, featuring his wife Sridevi, says the story of the film is very hard-hitting.
“I sincerely hope that the film reaches a wider audience and they feel the essence of the story. The story is an emotional journey, it is quite hard hitting and very apt for today’s time. I hope people like it,” Boney, who was present at the trailer launch of the film along with Sridevi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui told IANS.
“I think box office always mattered the most in the movie business, nowadays people are more openly talking about it. Having said that, I think when I choose a script to produce a film, I go by conviction,” he said.
Asked about how casting was important, Boney said: “ Well, the story is about the emotional journey of a mother. Of course, she (Sridevi) is one of the USPs of the film but also I think Akshaye Khanna, Nawazuddin and the rest of the actors of the film also played an equally important role to narrate the story. But most importantly the film has turned out much better than what I had imagined in the beginning.”
Directed by Ravi Udyawar, Mom is releasing on July 7.
