Cine Blitz, October 2012

Sridevi shines again on the cover of Cine Blitz. A return, after a self-imposed hiatus, to not only the big-screen, but on newstands and magazine covers all around the world!

Looking sensational, shot by Dabboo Ratnani.

Word up on Nishi Prem (former editor of Stardust and now, former editor of Cine Blitz), who wrote a glowing piece on the magic of Sridevi.

"The Return of the Masters?
English Vinglish could change the way we look at mommy-comebacks, forever.

If ever there was an actress who could make a go for it anytime, it's Sridevi. If ever there was an appropriate time for an actress of her caliber to return to the screens, it's now. Seems film-history is readying itself to explode some mighty myths. Isn't it incredible already to have this majestic actress adorn the magazine covers after 15 long years - looking more stunning than ever - as if the 15 never happened!

We've seen bad comebacks and worse comebacks. We also have some never-really-left precedents like Sharmila Tagore, Kajol, Aishwarya Rai (till she got knocked up). But to completely disappear from the screen a fora  decade and half and then comeback new as ever, that would be a first. At the Toronto Film Festival where English Vinglish premiered, Sri-power was in play full steam with the audience going absolutely berserk and the actress getting a 10-minute standing ovation! It was as if she had never left the auditoriums..."
