Sridevi's last film Mom, which turned out to be a critical and a box office success in India, released in China on Friday, May 10. Co-starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the crime thriller opened well at the China box office as it raked in Rs 11.47 crore beating Ayushmann Khurrana's black comedy thriller Andhadhun's record. The film continued to perform well on day 2, Saturday and the scenario remained pretty much the same on Sunday as well. The film ended its opening weekend in China on a good note as it collected Rs 41.81 crore in the first three days which is very impressive.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to the popular microblogging site Twitter a while back and revealed the updated figures. He wrote, "#Mom has a healthy weekend in #China... Although the trending is better than #Hichki [opening weekend: $ 4.21 million], it’s important that #Mom maintains the pace on weekdays... Fri $ 1.68 mn, Sat $ 2.22 mn, Sun $ 2.06 mn. Total: $ 5.96 million [₹ 41.81 cr]."
Further, Boxofficeindia.com has reported, "Monday will tell where this film can go in China and it should hold well enough as that limited drop on Sunday suggests the film should get more than 50% of its Friday figure and might even be able to be around $1 million which would give it a chance of a good run. Even if the film was only to double up from here it would mean a better run in China than India." Sridevi Starrer ‘Mom’ To Release in China on May 10 as a Tribute to All Mothers
With Rs 41.81 crore, Mom has become the eighth highest opening weekend earner in China from Bollywood. Directed by Ravi Udyawar, Mom also features Akshaye Khanna, Sajal Ali and Adnan Siddiqui in important roles.
