‘English Vinglish’ leaves Big B in tears
New Delhi: Teasers of Sridevi’s comeback film ‘English Vinglish’ which is all set to hit screens on Oct 5th left Big B in tears. Sridevi is making a comeback on Bollywood silver screen after 15 long years. Big B who played a special role in the film after watching the film tweeted, “A viewing of ‘English Vinglish’ directed by Gauri Shinde, wife of R Balki tonight, leaves me with collective lumps in the throat and a surge of flushed eyes near the tear ducts. And it is not all the emotion of a particular moment that puts one in such state. It is the uncontrollable effect of appreciation that prevents one from expressing any at all….”
Amitabh Bachchan was particularly impressed by the way the film expresses the ordinariness of life. Speaking more about the film he said, “In our simplicity lies the true story of a lifetime. Massive explosions and devastating action sequences make you wonder in high adrenalin awe. But equally, the ordinariness of everyday life, strikes many strings that work together in sympathetic chords. It is complex and most difficult to be weathered in by simplistic endeavour.”
R Balki’s wife Gauri Shinde directed the film produced by Balki, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, RK Damani. The film has been predominantly shot in Canada and has music score by Amit Trivedi. Sridevi plays a housewife, who enrolls for an English speaking course in order to please her husband and family. The film is said to be based on the TV series Zabaan Sambhalke. The film also stars Priya Anand, Mehdi Nebbou, Neelu Sodhi, Ross Nathan, Rajeev Ravindranathan and Adil Hussain.
