A screening of Mom earned warm reviews for Sridevi in Moscow, on Saturday evening. The screening was attended by Sridevi, her husband Boney Kapoor, and their younger daughter Khushi. Jahnvi Kapoor couldn’t attend the event, as she is shooting for her debut film in Mumbai.
Sridevi could barely contain her emotions. “I am too overwhelmed to even process the experience, let alone express my thoughts. I must have done something right in my life to win the approval, appreciation and love of the audience after 50 years of acting.”
In Moscow, there were women in tears after the show. She says, “It showed me the power of cinema when used as a proper tool of expression. There were ladies who couldn’t contain their emotions. The screening went off superbly.”
The diva, whose previous release English Vinglish, also created a far-reaching impact, says the Russian experience has energised her. “I just want to do the films that won’t disappoint my fans — I am in no hurry to do another film. Whatever I do next must be as influential as English Vinglish and Mom.”
