Sridevi envies John Abraham!

Not in the exact dictionary meaning of the word, but the English Vinglish actor nurses an emotion close to green-eyed monster-ish!

As the one-time top billing leading lady Sridevi is gearing to return to the silver screen – she will be seen in Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish – the shy actor has opened up… and how! She’s been indulging in conversations left, right and centre, obviously to promote her film, yet it’s a pleasant change to watch her in this new avatar.

It was during one such chat that we found out that there is a role she would like to do, but this one’s behind the camera. No, not direction, ‘coz Sri once said, “That’s not my cup of tea at all… It’s not easy to direct a film. It entails tremendous responsibilities.”

Coming back the new role – this yummy mummy would like to have enlisted in production. Producer hubby Boney Kapoor isn’t the source of inspiration; the motivation is a much younger and far fitter man. When the English Vinglish actor was asked about a recent film she wished she had been part of, she replied: “Vicky Donor. I loved the movie. I wish I could have produced it.” Remember that handsome hunk John Abraham launched his career with the Ayushmann Khurana-Yami Gautam starrer? We are sure after reading the once-upon-a-time reigning queen’s reaction, John’s dil to garden garden ho gaya!
