“My Mother was there with me” –  Sajal Ali Shares her Views for Sridevi


The legend and great Bollywood actress Sridevi recently passed away due to the heart attack at Dubai. Sridevi worked in her last film with Sajal Ali, the Pakistani actress in 2017. The film named “MOM” in which Sridevi played the role of a mother of Sajal Ali.

Sridevi was the great actress and the diva at her time, she left everyone in tears due to her kind nature which will be remembered always. Same like Sajal Ali who shared few views about the bonding between both of the actress. Sajal Ali’s own mother died recently due to cancer and she quoted that she lost her mother again which is Sridevi.

“We shared a very mother-daughter kind of relationship. In the first two spells of the shoot, my mother was there with me and they developed a very good bond, so we spent a lot of time together — like a family. In the last spell of the film since I was alone at the shoot and my mother was in the hospital, that was when I got attached to her.”

“For me, she’s no doubt a legend but even in my first scene, I never felt like I was sitting in front of Sridevi; I felt I was sitting in front of a mother,” Sajal said. “She made me feel that way. It’s a very big thing. Lots of newcomers come and shoot with you and sometimes they even get intimidated or nervous, but during the entire shoot of the film, I never felt uncomfortable sharing the screen with her.”

On the ban of Pakistani actors in India, Sajal shared her views, “I am glad that I got a chance to work in Bollywood and might as well go again, but I am also concerned about contributing to a positive growth in Pakistani cinema. I believe the hard work that we put in the projects abroad can just be put in at home, where we are given the respect we deserve. Therefore, the ban shouldn’t be taken as a setback anyway.”
