After staying away from the silver screen for 12 years, Sridevi returned with Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish in 2012. She played a housewife who cannot speak fluent English and is not exactly a respected member of the family despite all that she selflessly does for them. Her journey to seek respect leads her to enroll herself secretly in an English learning program. This simple but strong narrative resonated widely with modern-day women. So much so that American entertainment weekly, Variety, compared Sridevi to Audrey Hepburn while others hailed her as the Meryl Streep of India!
