‘Mom’ produced by Sridevi and Boney Kapoor was put on hold following the unfortunate terror attack in Uri. The shoot wasn’t yet over when strong anti-Pakistan sentiment cropped up in the country (especially in segments of Bollywood and the political arena) and a ban was put on Pakistani artistes.
Sajal Aly and Adnan Siddiqui, two known faces in the Pakistani entertainment industry who are a part of ‘Mom’ cast as well, were denied visa a couple of times. However, we now hear it has been settled.

Reportedly, their visa has been issued and they will be flying down to India in February to complete filming.
“It’s been about four months since the team has been waiting to wrap up the final schedule. In September, following the Uri attacks and the surgical strikes, Sajal and Adnan’s visas were rejected several times. Now they have obtained a visa for a month and will be flying to Delhi to shoot the final scenes and a song in February,” a source from the team told a popular publication from Pakistan.
Sajal and Adnan’s visa has a tenure of one month and in that one month, they’re required to finish shooting of the climax sequence and a song.
‘Mom’ also stars Sridevi, Akshaye Khanna and Vikas Verma in pivotal roles.
