Bollywood actress Sridevi, who is regarded as one of the greatest and most popular actresses of Hindi Cinema, is making a comeback to the films after a gap of 15 years with Gauri Shinde’s ‘English Vinglish’ and she says she is happy to be in a position to be selective about the roles.
While speaking on her inclusion, Sridevi told the media that she is just waiting to see how people respond to her film and if she gets a good response she will continue acting.
“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.
Sridevi, who ruled the Bollywood in late 1980s, was last seen in ‘Judaai’, said she was never away from the industry.
“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.”
“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 actress insisted that it was the script which attracted her. She said she would have agreed to do the film even if someone had offered it to her ten years back.
She said, “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.”
Well, all said and done, let’s see how good Sridevi performs in the movie, which is scheduled to hit the cinemas on October 5.
