Late actor Sridevi’s film Mom is all set to release in China on this Mother’s Day, 10 May 2019. The movie was earlier scheduled to release on March 22.
“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,” said Vibha Chopra, Head of Zee Studios International (Film Marketing, Distribution and Acquisition).
In Mom, Sridevi played a mother who set out to ensure justice for her step-daughter, played by Pakistani actor Sajal Ali, who had been gangraped. Sridevi won the National Award for best actor posthumously for her role.
The film, a crime thriller, was directed by Ravi Udyawar and produced by Zee Studios International and was previously released in 40 international regions including Poland, Russia, the UK, the US, Singapore and Czech Republic.
It was the actor’s 300th film and the last full-length film before her death on 24 February 2018.
Five years after her hit film English Vinglish, Sridevi gave a powerful performance in Mom (2017). She was also seen in a cameo in Anand L. Rai’s Zero last year.
