Actor Sridevi’s comeback film, English Vinglish, which released last week, is silently spreading a message among its viewers worldwide - respect women. The 49-year-old plays the character of a middle class housewife Shashi who is often ridiculed and humiliated by her teenage daughter and husband because of her poor English.
Sridevi says she is getting positive feedback from her viewers who have liked the film’s message of supporting and respecting women who silently dedicate their lives to the welfare of their family. “A man, someone’s husband, came up to me and said that after watching the movie, he had felt bad that his harsh remarks may have hurt his wife many times,” she says.
“The movie is not just about a person learning English language, it is about human feelings, it is a universal subject. This is a movie I can show proudly to my kids and grandchildren, this is also one of my best,” says Sridevi.
