The movie was released in 38,500 screens in China by Zee Studios International on May 10. It opened better that Sriram Raghavan's AndhaDhun in the country.
According to the statement issued by the studio, the opening day collection of "Mom" is Rs 9.8 crore.
Trade expert Taran Adarsh feels it's a good start.
"‘Mom' debuts at No. 4 position at China Box Office (opens better than last month's ‘AndhaDhun')... Although the start is good, the business needs to witness an upturn on Saturday and Sunday for a healthy weekend total... Friday $1.64 million (Rs 11.47 cr). Note: Includes screenings held earlier," he tweeted.

We are now optimistic of a record breaking weekend.
"The legendary stature of Sridevi is unmatched and taking her film to as many countries and people across the world, is our small way of showing our deepest gratitude to the filmmakers to trust it with taking the film far and wide."
Stating on the partnership, producer of the film and Sridevi's husband Boney Kapoor said: "‘Mom' is very close to our heart and we are very overwhelmed to witness the love the film is receiving in China... On such an occasion, I wish Sri was here to see the huge success her film has garnered."
