China will get to see the late actor Sridevi on the silver screen for the last time ever in her film titled 'Mom'. The film will hit the theatres in China on Mar 22. Indian film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter handle to share the news alongside a poster of the film.
He wrote, "#Xclusiv: Sridevi's final major film #Mom will release in #China on 22 March 2019... Zee Studios International release... Poster for local audience." The announcement comes just two days after Sridevi's death anniversary (Feb 24).
The film had garnered an overwhelming response from fans and critics alike in India. Sridevi had also won several awards for it posthumously.
'Mom', which also starred Akshaye Khanna and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, released on Jul 7, 2017 in India. Pakistani actors Adnan Siddiqui and Sajal Aly also play pivotal parts in the film.
The film was directed by Ravi Udyawar and produced by Sridevi's husband Boney Kapoor. 'Mom' was Sridevi's last film as a lead actor while she had a brief cameo in 2018 film 'Zero', starring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. Sridevi had already shot her scenes for 'Zero' before she passed away in February 2018.
'Mom' revolves around Sridevi, as a vigilante, who sets out to avenge a crime committed against her step-daughter (played by Sajal Ali). Akshaye Khanna plays the role of a cop while Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the role of a private detective.
The film won two National Awards - Best Actress for Sridevi and Best Background Score for AR Rahman. 'Mom' has already been released in Poland, Czech, Russia, UAE, UK, USA, and Singapore.
Sridevi tragically passed away at the age of 54 due to accidental drowning in a bathtub of her hotel room in Dubai.
