Mom released this past weekend and the film opened to positive feedback not just from the public, but also critics. Where Sridevi’s emotional video dedicated to Sajal Aly and Adnan Siddiqui went viral days ago, someone decided to remember the good old days of Mom from Pakistan.
Yes, Adnan couldn’t help but pen an emotional letter to the team behind it.
The Pakistani actor shared a collage on Instagram of his moments on the film’s set with Sajal, Sridevi and others. He started off with the first time he received a call to play a character in Mom, to all what it took to put the Bollywood movie together.
Here’s what Adnan had to say about Sridevi and Sajal: “SriDevi gee, who proved why she was & is one of the best the world will ever see & undoubtedly, our home grown bundle of exceptional talent @sajalaly, who didn’t allow a single scene to be ordinary, these were my beacons throughout this project”.
Adnan also thanks the crew for feeding him with his “choice of food”, fulfilling his “extraordinary cravings for coffee”.
Take a look at the beautiful photo collage along with the emotional note by Adnan for team Mom.
The curtains have been unveiled, the reviews have kicked in & the masses have spoken, #MOM is received phenomenally worldwide! Where to begin & how to sum up such a project is story in itself. Getting the call for this character, gearing up for the workshops, getting to know the finest in our business & being expected to deliver my best was certainly not easy. However, it would have been impossible if it wasn’t for people like #BoneyKapoor Sb, the man who taught me quite a few things about filmmaking, #SriDevi gee, who proved why she was & is one of the best the world will ever see & undoubtedly, our home grown bundle of exceptional talent @sajalaly, who didn’t allow a single scene to be ordinary, these were my beacons throughout this project & the man who didn’t give up on anyone of us, the captain of the ship, our director #RaviUdyawar was an iceberg when it came to tackling petty to big issues & guided us all to victory. I have to thank the entire crew, which put up with my demands, who looks after me as I was a family member, people I spent countless days & nights prepping me up for a scene, feeding me with my choice of food, fulfilling my extraordinary cravings for coffee, I couldn’t have performed if it wasn’t you guys, #teamMOM deserves an applause. And finally, YOU ALL! All the efforts that we as actors make is to bring a smile on your face, make you forget all your worries for those 3 hours in cinema, try to console some of you with our loud expressions & try to relate to some of you with our characters, if you don’t approve of what we do, we would stand no where. For all the love that you have shown me from across the globe has humbled me, proved me again how small I am in front you all, thank you very much for your support & wishes. #MOM is running with packed houses in a cinema near you. Don’t miss out on the biggest blockbuster of the year! #Thankyou #AdnanSiddiqui #Mom
