A lot has changed ever since Sridevi starred in a film and promoted it before her comeback in English Vinglish. The actress is pleasantly surprised by all the positive changes she’s seen in Bollywood upon her return.
Bollywood diva Sridevi, who makes her big screen comeback after 15 years, says she's yet to get used to the aggressive marketing strategies.
"Promotions are different experience altogether. It used to be just few magazines earlier in which we used to talk about the film. But today it's quite scary, but I am really getting used to it and I have started enjoying it," Sridevi told reporters in New Delhi on Monday.
Looking elegant in a white top and red trousers, she was here to promote her forthcoming film English Vinglish along with director Gauri Shinde. The film releases Friday.
Sridevi is surprised to see how the industry has changed over a decade.
"I was quite surprised with the improved technology, expert technicians and so many new things have come up," she said and thanked director Gauri for making her comfortable.
"The whole atmosphere was very positive and I really enjoyed it," she added.
What is amazing for the 49-year-old actress is the way filmmakers are experimenting with bold subjects.
"It feels really nice to see how so many new subjects and bold subjects are being picked up as people are willing to see something different. I am extremely happy to know that filmmakers are also ready to take chances," she said.
Anil Kapoor hails Sridevi as a complete actress
Anil Kapoor hails his sister-in-law and co-star Sridevi as one of the best actresses of recent times and adds that he won't mind teaming up with her again for a good film.
"Well, she is a complete actress. I have done a lot of films with her and in the last many, many years, I think she is the best," the 52-year-old said here Sunday at the GQ Men Of The Year awards.
Anil and Sridevi gave hits like "Mr. India", "Laadla" and "Judaai".
Sridevi is married to Anil's elder brother Boney Kapoor who is planning a sequel to his 1987 hit production venture "Mr. India".
Anil, who is expected to be a part of "Mr. India" sequel, is open to working with Sridevi again.
He said: "It depends on script, if there is anything interesting, why not. Well, 'Mr. India' sequel is definitely on. So, that's definitely there."
Right now Sridevi is in the news for "English Vinglish" that marks her comeback on big screen after 15 years.
Anil has high hopes from "English Vinglish", which is releasing Friday. It is prouduced by R. Balki and directed by his wife Gauri Shinde.
"I expect a great performance. I expect a very good film because you know, Balki and Gauri are on-board and I am sure it's going to be a good film," Anil said.
