Apparently the English Vinglish actor has turned down a offer to play negative role. Read on to know more

Guess who is acting a bit pricey? Its none other than the Hawa hawai girl Sridevi. Buzz is that Sri apparently turned down an offer to play a negative role in Abhishek Kapoor’s upcoming film Fitoor which is based on Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations.

“Everyone is waiting to see what her next film is after English Vinglish. The film has Katrina Kaif as the leading lady. Sushant Singh Rajput, who was earlier a part of the film, recently walked out of the project. Abhishek wanted Sridevi for a role, which was played by Robert De Niro in the 1998 big screen version of the novel. Abhishek tweaked the script and made it female-oriented,” said a source.

But Sri who is still riding high on the success of her comeback film English Vinglish turned down Abhishek’s offer as she thought that she is not the ‘right choice’ for the role.

Poor Abhishek! First Sushant Singh Rajput walked out of the film and now Sridevi refused to play a negative role in Fitoor! We really feel sorry for the man.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    These Bollywood directors are out of their mind for sure. How dare you offer Sridevi such a role?? A movie where Katrina Kaif is heroine?!!! I as a Sridevi fan do not want to see her doing side roles. If Sri is acting she should be in every single frame of the movie. Like English Vinglish. Otherwise we can wait for the right film to watch her. Im sure Sri didnt turn down the part because it is negative role as she already did an all out negative role in Laadla at her peak when she was the No.1. Sri turned down this because of scope. We dont want to see Sri in supporting roles and she knows that very well.

    I don’t think it’s anything to do with her being pricey. It was clear that it’s a supporting role and there’s no way a megastar like Sri would have done that. It’s like asking Aamir Khan to play Ramu Kaka in Sholay. And if she’s being pricey, she’s Sridevi. She can afford to.
