After the formalities were done, Adnan Siddiqui met Boney Kapoor, who was 'inconsolable.' "When everything was settled, Boney saab called me upstairs. He was there along with a family friend, his wife and a daughter. Boney saab was crying like a baby; he was inconsolable. I was with him until 5 am. He was under a lot of stress, so I advised him to rest, and then left," he told mid-day.
Adnan Siddiqui played Sridevi's husband in MOM, which released last year. It's Sridevi's last Hindi film as a lead actress. MOM also starred Pakistani actress Sajal Aly.
