English Vinglish First Look
Mumbai: ‘English Vinglish’ marks the return of yesteryear beauty Sridevi and the film producer R.Balki says the film is scripted keeping Sridevi in mind. Speaking with media he says “‘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”. The film is directed by Gauri Shinde, who is the wife of R.Balki.
Sridevi scorched the silver screen with films like “Sadma”, “Chandni” “Chaalbaaz”, “Mr.India” and “Lamhe”. Her last movie was “Judaai”, released in 1997. ‘English Vinglish’ revolves around a woman who experiences difficulties in conversing in English. Producer revealing more about the film and Sridevi’s role says “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,” Balki says his wife did not take any tips from him. He adds “The last person she will take tips would be from me. My wife is very independent. I would rather take tips from her. She is very independent minded, she has her own sensibility and it works for her”. Balki’s reputation in Bollywood shot up with critically acclaimed movies like “Cheeni Kum” and “Paa”.
