Actor Sridevi's last feature film, 'Mom', will open in China on the occasion of Mother's Day. The Ravi Udyawar-directed revenge thriller follows a mother (Sridevi) who avenges a crime committed against her stepdaughter.
The film was earlier scheduled to release on March 22 in the country but now has been set for May 10. The same was announced by Trade analyst Taran Adarsh who took to Twitter and wrote, 'New release date... Sridevi’s final major film #Mom will now release in #China on 10 May 2019... Zee Studios International release...'
"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", Vibha Chopra, Head, Zee Studios International (Film Marketing, Distribution and Acquisition) said in a statement.
Sridevi was honoured posthumously with a Best Actress National Film Award for her performance in the 2017 film. The film marked the 300th screen appearance for the veteran actor, who passed away on February 24, 2018, due to accidental drowning at a Dubai hotel.
'Mom' has already been released in Poland, Czech Republic, Russia, UAE, UK, USA, and Singapore.
