Its not justified to stop artistes from across the border to work in India:Ravi Udyawar

Vastavam web: Director Ravi Udyawar, whose upcoming film “Mom” features Pakistani actors Adnan Siddiqui and Sajal Ali, says it is not justified to stop artistes from across the border to work in India.Karan Johar’s film “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”, which featured Fawad Khan in a cameo, faced trouble in its release last year from right wing outfits. Johar had to issue a video apology to get his film released.”I respect whatever is happening. It shouldn’t be happening. But this is how it is, this is how things are. It is sad,” Udyawar told.

“We had already shot most of the scenes by then, only ten days of patchwork was left. Filmmaking itself is taxing. We tried our best to finish things. We had the permission and we had to go and shoot it.” Udyawar is all praise for Adnan and Sajal, who play prominent roles in “Mom”. While Sajal takes on the role of Sridevi’s stepdaughter, Adnan will portray the 53-year-old actress’ husband in “Mom”.Adnan is a great actor. They both did a good job.”

The film also features Akshaye Khanna and Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Udyawar says it was a dream come true for a director to have such a talented bunch of actors on board.”Sridevi is a fine actor and she knows what new she can get to a film. She felt an emotional connect with the idea of the film.”
