Sridevi’s last big film ‘Mom’ to release in China on THIS special occasion
On the occasion of Mother’s Day, Sridevi’s ‘Mom’ will hit theatres in China on May 10. It’s a big achievement and a huge honour for the legendary actress.
The critically-acclaimed film ‘Mom’ gave every viewer goose bumps, on July 2017. On the occasion of Mother’s Day, the makers of the film will now release the critically-acclaimed film in China, which has suddenly become a huge draw for Indian films post the super success of ‘Dangal’ and ‘Secret Superstar’.
Talking about the same, Vibha Chopra, Head – Zee Studios International (Film Marketing, Distribution and Acquisition) said, “We wanted to pick the perfect date for the release of such a special film like Mom in China, which is a huge market and has great potential for the film to do well. As a tribute to all mothers, we have chosen May 10 to release this riveting film in China.”
Directed by Ravi Udyawar, ‘Mom’ is about how a girl’s life changes when she is brutally gang-raped by a group of spoiled rich students from her school and two of their house helps. Her stepmother seeks justice and takes the help of a detective to teach the perpetrators a lesson.
The film won two National Film Awards—one for Best Actress and the other for Best Background Score. It really was one of the best films to have come out that year.
But with the film already having released on digital platforms and on television, will the Chinese market contribute that much to the film’s box-office collections? We will have to wait for Mother’s Day to know about the same.
