English Vinglish actress Sridevi on Thursday said her dream to work with double Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman was finally realised with her upcoming Hindi suspense drama Mom.

"When Ravi [Udyawar] and I started working on the project, we felt it'd be nice to have Rahman on board. We were blessed to work with him because it has been a long-time dream. I'd forever be grateful to him for being part of this film," Sridevi told reporters.

Sridevi was in Chennai to promote the Tamil dubbed version of Mom, she said the film is a "simple" and "emotional family drama".

Speaking at the event, Rahman said the story of Mom is "universal" and that's what makes it "unique".

"It's about familial relationship. Irrespective of which part of the world you live, family is special and we'd do anything to protect our loved ones," he said.

Directed by Ravi Udyawar, Mom is due to be released on 7 July release. The film also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna.
