Anupama Chopra: How did you immerse yourself in this character, Shashi, from English Vinglish?
Sridevi: I don’t know. I feel the character and that minute I feel I’m Shashi, I’m not Sridevi. Sometimes my daughters start saying, “ Mamma I think you are behaving like Shashi today”.
Anupama Chopra: So they were part of the process that they knew what Shashi, your character was like?
Sridevi: Yes absolutely. They read the script.
Anupama Chopra: Did they approve?
Sridevi: From the beginning they have been saying, “Mamma please do one movie. It’s high time.” So one day they read the script and they said, “This is it.”
Watch “The Front Row with Anupama Chopra” tonight at 8:30 p.m. on Star World for the full conversation with Sridevi and Gauri Shinde.
