One of the legends of the film industry, Sridevi is loved and respected not just in India, but across the globe. The biggest indication of the late actress’ global fan following is the love that is being showered to her in China right now. Sridevi’s last film as a lead, ‘Mom’ is enjoying a splendid run in the neighbouring country. There were more tributes to her at an event where citizens of China expressed their love and affection to the ‘Sadma’ star.
India’s ambassador to China, Vikram Misri shared pictures from a special event in honour of Sridevi on Monday. Misri informed that an Indian fan club “Hi Indian Cinema” in collaboration with the Embassy of India in China held a quiz and performances on the actress’ songs. He shared that the Chinese fans too expressed their love and affection through their active participation.
The ambassador termed it as ‘bridge-building’ as the local fan club coming out in full force enabled the fans to express their love and tributes.
Even Sridevi's husband Boney conveyed his gratitude.
Meanwhile, ‘Mom’ had gone on to earn over twice of what it had earned in India (around Rs 35 crore), as the China collections now stand at 12.19 million USD or Rs 84.77 crore, as per trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
The movie that fetched Sridevi her first National Award, posthumously, is being lapped by the Chinese audiences.
Meanwhile, Sridevi's daughter Janhvi is following in her footsteps as her debut 'Dhadak' was a success at the box office. She has also signed three more films, 'Takht', 'Rooh-Afza' and a movie on Kargil fighter pilot Gunjan Saxena. There are reports that her younger daughter Khushi will also make her debut soon while husband Boney Kapoor has announced multiple productions in both Bollywood and South industries.
