Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who last worked with Sreedevi in Khuda Gawah in 1993, says it is a “delight” to work with the actress after so many years in Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish.
“Up by 6 am and off to the gym and off to Prateeksha and off to work and right next to Sreedevi, after like many moons…such a delight to be working again in front of camera with her…still the same effervescent, spontaneous, delightful Sri…,” Amitabh, 68, posted on his blog.
Shinde is Paa director R. Balki’s wife, and Amitabh readily agreed for a cameo in her film. Sharing his experience of the shoot, he added: “Inside a Boeing 747… film directed by R.Balki’s wife Gauri titled English Vinglish… a small one day cameo…women power at its peak.”
The film is Sreedevi’s comeback project. Her last full-fledged role was in Judaai in 1997.
