Sridevi came back into Bollywood after a long dry spell of 22 years. The woman, who is referred to be as India’s Meryl Streep, has pointed out that she still has her grasp over charm and skill intact.
Sources report that Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish that marked her comeback, has become the Second highest Bollywood film grosser in Hong Kong preceded by Aamir Khan’s 2009 film, 3 Idiots directed by Rajkumar Hirani.
Hong Kong is the emerging consumerist market for Bollywood cinema which is vastly appreciated there. The film earned 2,00,000 US dollars in Hong Kong alone and was dubbed in English and Cantonese for a wider availability.
English Vinglish is also going to be screened at The Director’s Club, which is a venue that allows only meticulous film makers and celebrated directors. This film is indeed a moment of celebration for Indian box office to be lauded abroad!
