Mumbai: ‘English Vinglish’ is set for its television premiere Dec 29, and its director, debutant Gauri Shinde, can`t contain her excitement.
The movie narrates the story of a simple housewife and how she emerges from the shadow of her husband and family life to carve her own niche.
"With the television premiere of `English Vinglish`, so many women, who were not able to get out and watch the film, will be able to do that," Shinde said in a statement.
The movie received a thumbs up from the audience.
"Women have come up to me and said it`s their own story and how some men have said that they have changed their behaviour towards their wives. That`s the biggest and greatest feeling for me. I can`t wait for the nation to watch it," she added.
‘English Vinglish’ marked actress Sridevi`s comeback to the industry after 15 years. With her flawless performance, Sridevi not only won the hearts of millions of middle-class Indian housewives, but also overshadowed the young actresses.
The movie will premiere on Zee Cinema.
