Post the success of English Vinglish, which was directed by first time director Gauri Shinde, the actress, said she was overwhelmed to see women relate to the film.

"English Vinglish was the right kind of film and I had a great character. It was one film which every woman could identify with, be it wife or sister. Gauri conveyed the message so well.

"Post the release of the film, many women came up to me and said that they were inspired by my character Shashi and have started learning English," said Sridevi, who was in the capital on Friday night for the launch of Fiona, a digital RO water purifying technology.
