Mumbai: The gorgeous actress of the late 80’s and 90’s, Sridevi is all set to make a comeback in the films once again. Yes! She has recently signed for Gauri Shinde`s film, ‘English Vinglish’.
It is after 14 years that she will face the camera again and get back to acting. She spoke to a daily on what made her decide to do a film after so many years, “The credit goes to the script and my director. When I heard the script, I fell in love with it. I hope it turns out well. It`s been a while since I faced the camera. I`m nervous and excited. My children and husband are excited about the comeback.”
She will be working with a female director for the first time in her career. Apparently, the film preparations are full swing at the moment. She said, “Yes! We`ve already started working on costumes and the look - we`ve selected the sarees. I`ve never worked with a woman director before. When I met her there was so much positive energy between us.”
Sridevi was initially supposed to make a comeback with ‘Mr India 2’ but now she will be seen in Shinde’s film after her sabbatical of more than a decade. Work and shooting schedule for the film will begin on July 7. She was last seen in ‘Judaai’ opposite actor and brother-in-law Anil Kapoor in 1997 after which she settled down with husband Boney Kapoor and became a homemaker.
She had cut out from working in Bollywood after marriage but she insists that she never went out of touch from the film industry. She said to a daily, “I loved spending time at home, raising my children. Besides, being a producer`s wife, how can I ever be away from the industry? I never felt disconnected.”
Well, we already can’t wait to see you scorch the silver screen again Sridevi!
