Mahira Khan may not be in India promoting Raees, but her fellow Pakistani actors Adnan Siddiqui and Sajal Aly have just got visas to Delhi for the completion of their Indian film, the Sridevi-starrer Mom.
Adnan and Sajal, who play Sridevi’s husband and stepdaughter in the film, will fly to India in February for the shoot of the climax scenes and a song, reported Mumbai Mirror.
Their visas did not come easily, according to the publication.
A source associated with the team revealed to Mirror, “It’s been about four months since the team has been waiting to wrap up the final schedule. In September, following the Uri attacks and the surgical strikes, Sajal and Adnan’s visas were rejected several times. Now they have obtained a visa for a month and will be flying to Delhi to shoot the final scenes and a song in February. The team is planning to wrap up the schedule by February 14 and release the film by May this year.”
Actor Vikas Verma, who plays the negative lead in the film, confirmed the news, “Yes, they (Sajal and Adnan) are required for the final scenes and have finally got a visa for a month to complete the shoot. It’s a very important scene and we have been looking forward to film.”
Mom is a drama about a stepmom in conflict with her 18-year old daughter. The film, produced by Sridevi and husband Boney Kapoor, will mark her 50 years in the industry. “The plan is to have a party on the sets after the shoot and a bigger party is being planned for later where all her industry colleagues from over the years are expected to show up,” the source also revealed.
