Sajal Aly shares emotional post as ‘Mom’ turns three
Famous actress Sajal Aly who recently became the fourth actress to hit six million followers on Instagram shared a throwback picture with the late Bollywood actress Sridevi over completing three years of ‘MOM’.
Sajal not only made her Bollywood debut with the film but also received the honour of working with the Indian film legend while playing her on-screen daughter, Arya. Mom released on July 7, 2017, in four languages, and became a critical and commercial hit.
The film also received two awards at the 65th National Film Awards following which Sridevi passed away in February 2018.
In her post on three years anniversary of the film and her last encounter with Sridevi, Sajal wrote, “There are some experiences that, no matter how much time goes by you can never forget.”
She added, “More often than not, people think that an actor’s life is easy. But not everyone thinks about the things we leave behind when we commit to a character.”
Highlighting the struggles that come with making so many temporary connections with characters and people, Sajal pointed out what actors have to go through when they have to let go so often. “We commit a portion of our lives to a project, and in the process put our own lives on pause. That can sometimes be the most difficult thing.”
She then concluded, “For me, Mom was not a film, but a portion of my life I will never forget. Three years of #MOM”.
