India biz.” Taran added that MOM’s Monday business was better than Friday. “#Mom *footfalls* on Mon are higher than Fri since ticket rates are reduced… Effectively, it’s more than opening day in terms of occupancy.”

Directed by Ravi Udyawar, MOM also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna in pivotal roles. The film has so far received mixed to good reviews. Its gaining momentum through word of mouth and is expected to keep pace in the coming days over the week too. Sridevi plays a mother seeking revenge for her daughter in MOM. She returned to Hindi cinema five years after English Vinglish. The diva said the gap happened because she felt responsible towards her fans. “When the audience expects you to do a good job, you become more choosy. It becomes a responsibility. I don’t want to do films for the sake of doing them. I have a lot to do at home. I enjoy that as well. I want to do the same with my films too.”

Meanwhile, Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor is all set to make her Bollywood debut. Sridevi spoke about her daughter during the promotions of the film. “The other day she was very upset with reports that she was chasing a hero in a party, but that was not true. She was with director Gauri Shinde who was also there at the same party. Since it’s happening at the beginning of her career she isn’t liking it. She was quite upset and I was like, ‘Welcome to this world,” Sridevi told PTI.

“There is nothing wrong in going out with friends. A person wants to write something wrong, he will write it even if you are just going out with friends. I can’t stop that as she is a public ( figure now). I have no control over anything. I know what she is doing and where she is going. I am a very friendly mom and my children share everything with me. I don’t have anything much to say about all this,” the actor added.
