Plump it Up!

Sridevi’s life comes a full circle; she has to put on weight like in her earlier days for her comeback film.
W e last got a proper look at her in the 1997 release Judaai. And ever since, we have been yearning to have her back on the silver screen. And now, after 14 long years of marriage and motherhood, Sridevi is all set to make her comeback.
However, unlike what many may think, Sri, who has managed to maintain a great figure even in her life off screen these past years, will not be seen on screen in her sexy svelte avatar. The actress has been asked to put on a few kilos for her role in Gauri Shinde's film English Vinglish.
Life seems to have come a full circle for Sridevi, who was a rather chubby-cheeked beauty in Padinaru Vayadhinile, over 30 years ago.
A source revealed, “People are taken aback by how much weight Sridevi has lost in recent months. She is looking nearly anorexic. It is felt that this look doesn't go with what is required in her role as a housewife in search of her identity.”
For those who have just tuned in, Sridevi plays a woman married into a rich family in the film English Vinglish. The fact that she doesn't know the British language makes her the laughing stock. And so, Sri's character enrolls for an English learning course in the UK. There she meets a French guy. Do we need to say what happens next?
However, it is for this very role of a perfect little housewife that Sri has been asked to gain the extra pounds. It's ironic since the actress had gone through a very strict health regime to get into perfect shape these past few years. In fact, her husband Boney even revealed jokingly, “When the food comes to the table I feel sorry for it. I therefore end up eating for both of us. That's why I'm overweight.”
Looks like Boney will have to start sharing his food again. After all, he does want his wife's comeback film to be perfect.

Sridevi, who will start shooting for her comeback film, English Vinglish on July 7 said that she is not required to put on any weight for her character. “I don’t know who has been saying this, because the director is fine with how I look right now,” said the actress who last faced the camera for her husband, Boney Kapoor’s Judaai 14 years ago.
The actress, who at one time, was to make her comeback with Kapoor’s sequel to Mr India, said that she is quite happy to be back with this film as her character is extremely interesting. It will also be the first time that she will be working with a woman director, Gauri Shinde, wife of director R Balki.
