Sridevi turns New York unit of English Vinglish to 'organic' food
From the time she was a filled-out voluptuous screen siren in Himmatwala and Tohfa to the reed-thin diva shooting in the chilling winds of Central Park in New York earlier this week, Sridevi sure has come a long way.
Apparently, the reticent diva who is shooting for her first post-marriage film English Vinglish in New York has converted the entire cast and crew to organic food.
Says a source, "Sridevi is heavily into health food. She doesn't even touch anything fried oily or even cooked. She is completely into natural food. She was earlier crazy about South Indian food and couldn't do without her rice-rasam meals."
It was Boney Kapoor's recent health scare that converted Sridevi into a health-food fanatic. Apparently, Sri turned to organic food so that her husband too would start eating healthy after hospitalization.
And now she has converted the entire cast and crew of English Vinglish to organic food. Says a source from New York, "The unit consists of people from all over the world. There are people from Japan, China, Taiwan and Korea. They've all converted to organic food because of Sridevi."
The director Gauri Shinde's husband the film's producer R Balki confirmed, "It's an organic film. Everybody is eating only organic food. Sridevi is a salad woman. Organic to the core. Whether it's her acting or her diet, they are both fully natural."
