Prospect of seeing Sridevi on big screen is exciting: Balki

Added by harini on Jul 13, 2012

It’s a well known fact that veteran actress Sridevi is making a comeback on big screen with the movie ‘English Vinglish’. But the actress is all set to clash with Kareena Kapoor as both Sridevi’s movie ‘English Vinglish’ and Kareena’s movie ‘Heroine’ are set to release on September 21.

But R. Balki, who is co- producing the movie along with Eros Entertainment is unperturbed with this and has decided to stick with the original release date for the movie.

“We believe every film, no matter what the gender of its protagonist, has its own audience. I am sure Madhur Bhandarkar's film (Heroine) will be very exciting. But the prospect of seeing Sridevi again is equally exciting,” he said to IANS.

The movie not only marks the comeback of Sridevi but is also the directorial debut of Balki's wife, Gauri Shindi.

The filmmaker said that he has completed his part in the movie and it was not the ladies turn to take the center stage.

“I have done what I had to. I'm just the film's producer. Now it's up to Sri and Gauri to take the film to the audience,” he said.

Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan, who featured in Balki’s ‘Cheeni Kum’ and ‘Paa’, is making a guest appearance in the movie, apparently free of cost.

“With Amitji, I wouldn't dare to discuss money,” the director concluded.

Both ‘English Vinglish’ and ‘Heroine’ are woman-centric and it would be interesting to see how they performance at the box-office.
