Adnan Siddiqui made his way back to international screen with Mom, which also marked Bollywood debut of Pakistani starlet, Sajal Aly, after a brilliant performance in Angelina Jolie starrer, A Mighty Heart.
Mom released this past weekend and the film opened to positive feedback from both the audiences and critics alike.
While Sajal Aly expressed her gratitude as she wrote a heartfelt note to the director and her on-screen mother, Sridevi, fellow actor, Adnan, too took to Instagram to write a heartwarming note to the cast and crew of the movie.
“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,” HE began.
“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 Boney Kapoor Sb, the man who taught me quite a few things about film-making, 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 Sajal Aly, 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 Ravi Udyawar was an iceberg when it came to tackling petty to big issues & guided us all to victory,” he wrote.
“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, team Mom deserves an applause,” he added.
He went on to thank the audience, saying, “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.” he concluded.
