Previously, the film had been announced as releasing on July 14, but that would put it up against the Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif rom-com Jagga Jasoos. Haseena, a biopic of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim's sister Haseena Parkar, is also likely to release on the same date.
The producers of Mom have decided to postpone its release to avoid a clash with these films.
Mom is touted as a "women-centric film", in which Sridevi plays a stepmom in conflict with her 18-year old daughter Sajal Aly. Adnan Siddiqui stars as Sridevi's husband.
