Yash Raj Studio, Wednesday July 07, 2011: Sridevi came back in front of the camera. Having stayed away from the flashlights for fifteen long years, the actress shot the first scene for her comeback film, Gauri Shinde's English Vinglish yesterday.
And though both the lead heroine of the film, Sridevi and her debutant director Gauri were doing just fine by themselves, the concerned husbands, Boney Kapoor and filmmaker Balki respectively, couldn't keep themselves from worrying.
Boney, who had been looking after Sri's career from before they tied the knot, not only called his wife on the sets every hour, but also couldn't help himself from dropping by at the studio to check on her.
As for the other husband, Balki, he stayed by his wife's side throughout the day's shoot.
As the day went by, even YRF head honcho Yash Chopra dropped by to meet his Chandni. His son Aditya, too joined in.
Yash Chopra, incidentally had offered Sridevi a role in Veer Zaara asking her to come back to films. Sri at that moment had to refuse the offer, since she had just delivered her first baby.
Speaking about his wife's comeback, Boney said, "Of course, I am nervous. But Sri, even today, is a head turner. We were at a global awards function in Toronto recently and people just couldn't stop complimenting her. I'm confident about her debut. She'll sail through it."
