Mumbai: Veteran actress Sridevi, who is gearing up for her forthcoming film “Mom”, says that she is totally a director’s actor.
“I am totally a director’s actor. I surrendered totally to my director Ravi Udyawar. I followed his vision. I trusted him and it has been amazing. He did a wonderful job” said Sridevi at the trailer launch of the film.
Present also were her daughters Jhanvi, Khushi, producer-husband Boney Kapoor, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui and the entire team of the film “Mom”.
Sridevi will be seen working for the first time with Nawazuddin and Akshaye Khanna. She says working in the film has been a beautiful experience for her.
“I’m working for the first time with a lot of people in this film. It’s really wonderful to see Nawazuddin on screen. He is a gifted actor. I’m huge admirer of his work. I have so much respect for him as an actor. Akshaye is such a powerful performer,” she said.
Sridevi also spoke about the “script” being the most important criteria for her and the script of “Mom” moved her.
