“Mom is a film that has connected with both, mothers and audiences, from every region. This is Sri’s last film and our aim is to tell this beautiful story and showcase her most remembered last film to as many people as possible. Zee Studios International has been a part of Mom’s success since day one and I am glad to see them take this film to heights even two years after its release” added Boney Kapoor.
