Confirmed! Sridevi plays a stepmother in her next

Bollywood diva Sridevi, who was last seen in the 2012 superhit flick English Vinglish, is all set to make a come back, next year. The actress will star shooting in January 2015.

We hear that the story revolve around a stormy relationship between a mother-daughter duo, where Sridevi plays a stepmom to a 18 year old step-daughter, in the Boney Kapoor film. The daughter’s role will be essayed by a new face, and the makers are hunting for one.

Meanwhile, Boney Kapoor seems to be quite relieved now, as he has finally found the right subject for his wife. Apparently, for a very long time the producer was on a look out for a perfect role for Sridevi and nothing seemed right as she has played everything that she could possibly play. Boney says he was keen on finding something unusual for her. And so, finally this untitled film happened.

Sridevi will complete a Tamil film which goes on floors in November, before she begins work on her hubby’s production.

The Tamil film is directed by Chimbu Devan and will feature Tamil superstar Vijay and Kannada star Sudeep opposite the actress. Sri plays a queen in the film.

Well, Boney says he was searching something unusual for her. Okay! But how is playing a stepmom unusual for Sridevi? ;-)

Nevertheless, in a time where other senior actresses are desperate to do any role that comes their way and end up with box office disasters, it’s great to see Sridevi in a position where she can pick and choose roles. After refusing offers from filmmakers like Zoya Akhtar, Abhishek Kapoor etc this one sounds exciting.
