Happy that I am in position to select scripts: Sridevi
Mumbai: Actress Sridevi, who is making comeback on silver screen after a gap of almost 15 years with `English Vinglish`, says she would like to continue acting, and insists that she is in a position to be selective about her roles.
"Absolutely, I would continue to work if the script is good....It all depends on how people react to this film. I am glad I am in a position to do whatever is comfortable for me. I am glad I am in a position to select scripts," Sridevi told PTI in an interview.
`English Vinglish` is directed by Gauri Shinde.
The 49-year-old actress, who ruled the Bollywood in late 1980s, was last seen in `Judaai`. She said she did not miss being away from films.
"I was happy being on the other side of the camera, enjoying myself and watching shootings. At the same time I was never away from the industry, I was with my children."
The audience has changed, she feels. "It is a good thing that we (the film) are coming at this good time when people like to see something different," she said.
The script of Shinde`s debut film attracted her, she says. "If had got this movie five or ten years ago, I would have (still) done it. I felt as woman, wife, mother I could relate to the character, I liked its simplicity and the subject of the film. I wouldn`t have had this (comeback) if this script had not come to me. It all just happened.
"He (husband Boney Kapoor) wanted to produce a film (for me). I heard the subject but nothing excited me where I could leave my children, house and family and be there in the studios."
