Jhanvi Kapoor MOM lead actor

Sridevi is all set to make her comeback with the film ‘MOM’. The movie also stars Akshaye Khanna, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Adnan Siddiqui. Well, Adnan is a Pakistani actor and it was Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor who had recommended him for the film.

Adnan had a cameo in Michael Winterbottom’s critically acclaimed film, ‘A Mighty Heart’ (2007) and Jhanvi was quite impressed with him. She suggested Adnan’s name to her father Boney Kapoor who is also the producer of the film. A source told a tabloid, “Boney was considering other options but Jhanvi, who has followed Adnan’s work in Pakistani cinema extensively, showed her dad A Mighty Heart and made sure he agreed to do a look test. Boney was impressed and had his team get in touch with Adnan, who immediately agreed to come on-board.” (Also Read: Jhanvi Kapoor’s dance moves will surely make you want to hit the dance floor now!)
