Unlike most Pakistani celebrities jumping over the first Bollywood offers made to them, Sajal Aly had totally different plans. Speaking to the media she stated, “If I can achieve the same level of fame and respect in my country why would I want to go to Bollywood?” and in another statement she said “As soon as I find a script and character to my liking I would say yes but I would not perform an item number.”
Well, times have changed and it looks like our very own innocent looking Sajal has found the role that fits her criteria.
After making waves on Pakistani Television, Sajal Aly has bagged a role alongside evergreen actress, Sridevi and is all set to make her Bollywood debut with the film titled ‘Mom’.
Produced by Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor, Mom is a women-centric film that features Sridevi as a stepmother who is in conflict with her 18-year-old daughter played by Sajal Aly.

Apart from Sridevi, Sajal will also be sharing screen space with the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pakistani actor Adnan Siddiqui who will play her father and Sridevi’s husband in the film.
