One of the first movies to hit the trifecta of having a great story, relatability sending a social message was English Vinglish back in 2012. One of the most iconic Sridevi characters, Shashi Godbole reminded us so much of our own mothers. A movie that made us laugh and left us with tears, English Vinglish celebrates its 10 years of existence this year. To celebrate this momentous occasion, writer and director Gauri Shinde along with the cast and crew of the film held a panel discussion on Monday.
10 Years Of English Vinglish: Boney Kapoor tears up remembering Sridevi
Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor had attended the event. The producer spoke about the movie, his late wife and her contribution to the film. He was visibly emotional and in tears remembering her work. A few days ago, he had shared a post on his Instagram account and wrote, "10 years of English Vinglish :) To come back after a sabbatical of 15 years from films, with a timeless, magical performance that touched everyone's hearts - is something only Sri could do. This film will always remain special.”
The writer and dIrector Gauri Shinde shared “Making English Vinglish was one of the best things that happened to me. To have the opportunity to work with Sridevi who at the time was on a sabbatical, was a miracle in itself. Her presence was the most prominent even beyond the camera’s lens. Not having her here today is still the most saddening thing. But being here with the rest of the cast and crew, talking about our memories of her and the movie felt great.”
The panel discussion ended with the announcement that Sridevi’s iconic sarees will be auctioned and the proceeds will go towards young women’s education.” The announcement was followed by the screening of the film.
