English Vinglish’ written with Sridevi in mind, says R.BalkiActress Sridevi at one time ruled Bollywood after delivering a number of superhits like “Sadma”, “Chandni” “Chaalbaaz”, “Mr.India” and “Lamhe”. However, post marriage, the pretty actress comfortably settled into the confines of her home and family after her last release “Judaai” in 1997.
After a long gap of 15 years, Sri is making her comeback with R.Balki’s ‘English Vinglish’ where she plays a woman who struggles to speak in English. The movie is being directed by Balki’s wife Gauri Shinde and Balki says that the movie was written with Sridevi in mind.
“‘English Vinglish’ is a very special film for me because it marks the comeback of Sridevi, possibly one of the greatest performers. It was written and discussed keeping Sridevi in mind,” Balki told IANS adding, “She plays a simple woman who struggles with English language. In India, there is a major problem – either you need money, or you need fame or you need to talk in English to be considered a part of the upper class.
There is a lot of struggle and lot of people in the country who are insecure because they don’t know English. The film tackles that.”
The film is set to release on September 21 which also happens to be the release date of two more women centric films viz., Kareena Kapoor’s ‘Heroine’ and Preity Zinta’s comeback vehicle ‘Ishq In Paris’.
