Five years after she made a comeback with Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish (2012), Sridevi returns to Hindi cinema with her home production, Mom (2017). In between, she took a negative role in Puli (2015), with co-stars Vijay, Shruthi Haasan and Hansika Motwani. Sridevi steps back in leading lady territory with Mom.

Introducing the first look of the film, Sridevi presented the poster of Mom saying, “When a woman is challenged...” The word 'mother' is scripted across a determined-looking Sridevi in different languages from Marathi to Spanish.

Actors Akshaye Khanna and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are said to have key roles in this film directed by first-time filmmaker Ravi Udyawar. Sridevi is producing Mom along with her husband, Boney Kapoor. It will be her 300th feature film in her fifth decade as an actress.

Mom is due to be released on 14 July in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
