Sridevi in New York
It's an all girls' vacation for the gorgeous Sridevi and the director of her comeback film English Vinglish, Gauri Shinde.
The two of them will fly to New York next month for the second schedule of their film. This is the intermission point in the film when Sridevi meets the enigmatic stranger, played by Amitabh Bachchan, on a flight to the US.
The women will go to the US without their respective spouses.
"So far, their husbands (Boney Kapoor and K Balki) have been hands-on with the project, constantly hovering around to make sure things go right. Now, the two confident ladies who, incidentally have become the best buddies during the first schedule, have decided to bar their respective spouses from the New York schedule. Even Sri's two daughters won't visit her during her long two-month shooting in New York," says a source.
"From the time Sri got married and became a mother, she has known no other life except her domestic world. Hard as it would be for her to tear herself away from her daughters and husband since she hasn't stayed away from them for even a few days let alone months, she will be away from home and family working in New York... and having fun," the source said.
Sridevi and Gauri have made a list of all the fun places and activities in and around New York that they would enjoy when not shooting.
When asked about his wife's plans, Boney Kapoor said, "Yes, she will be away in the US shooting next month. She'll be on her own. I don't know if she'll miss me but I certainly will."
Boney hints he will break the rule and sneak a visit or two to New York to meet his wife.
"I've no intention of joining them in the US," Balki says. "Let the ladies enjoy the shooting. I need to get down to my own script which has been neglected for some time. Mr Bachchan gently keeps reminding me about it."
