Old is Gold! The diva of the 90’s, Sridevi, is back on track with her upcoming film ‘English Vinglish’, hitting theaters on October 5. The diva essays the role of an insecure housewife, who enrolls in an English language class in order to impress her husband and family.
Well, do you know, Amitabh Bachchan has a cameo in the film? Earlier too, Sr Bachchan and Sridevi have worked together in films like Aakhree Raasta, Inquilab and Khuda Gawah.
The story line of ‘English Vinglish’ and Sridevi’s flawless performance moved Amitabh Bachchan so much that he was left in tears.
“A viewing of ‘English Vinglish’ directed by Gauri Shinde, wife of R Balki tonight, leaves me with collective lumps in the throat and a surge of flushed eyes near the tear ducts.
“And it is not all the emotion of a particular moment that puts one in such state. It is the uncontrollable effect of appreciation that prevents one from expressing any at all…,”Bachchan, 69, wrote on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.
The film portrays the simplicity and ordinariness of life, and this is what impressed the veteran actor.
“In our simplicity lies the true story of a lifetime. Massive explosions and devastating action sequences make you wonder in high adrenalin awe. But equally, the ordinariness of everyday life, strikes many strings that work together in sympathetic chords. It is complex and most difficult to be weathered in by simplistic endeavour,” he noted.
Mentioning that the Indian cinema is moving forward on a very positive note, Big B said,
“The revelation of immense creative talent in this 100 years of Indian Cinema, surprises me with each passing day. The verve and vigour and enthusiasm of the myriad hopefuls in this elaborate and exceedingly competitive profession, is to be seen and experienced.”
“What wonderful times we live in. How compelling it has become to view each new and fresh concept with wonder and awe, and how frustrating to not be today among the calibre of those that are designing the rules of the game!!” wrote the 69-year-old superstar.
Amitabh Bachchan is currently hosting the telly show Kaun Banega Crorepati 6.
