Walk The Talk

In fine form and a rare chat, Sridevi appeared on Walk The Talk with Shekhar Gupta. An interview done after the success of English Vinglish, Sridevi's shy and modest responses are reflective of her shy, non-diva persona.

She looked gorgeous in New Delhi, where this interview was conducted. Part of the interview is here. You can watch the full chat on youtube here.

From Indian Express:

Sridevi with Shekhar Gupta
In an interview with The Indian Express Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta on NDTV 24X7's Walk the Talk, actor Sridevi talks about her comeback, her past films, how she is 'very funny' at home but quiet outside, and why this is the best time for women in Hindi cinema.
Shekhar Gupta: I am at an unusual setting — an exhibition of 50 top designers in Delhi from around the country for charity — and my guest today is none other than Sridevi. Welcome to Walk the Talk. In which language do we converse — English, Hindi...?

Sridevi: Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam...

I draw the line there. I can handle English, Hindi, Vinglish, Hinglish. You move further south and I am in trouble.
That's fine.

Nice to see you in Delhi. What brings you here?
I'm here for the NGO Sahachari Foundation. They've put up a great exhibition of designers from all over the country. It's for a good cause, for charity. That is why I'm here.

So your arrival in philanthropy, is it to do with the new phase in your life?
Well, yes. But it just happened. I never planned this comeback at all.

This new phase in philanthropy has also coincided with your comeback. Is this a confident, new, independent Sridevi after 15 years of purdah, if I may say so?
Well, this is because of my children and my husband. They encouraged me to come back and do some films and whatever else I'm doing. Otherwise, I was happy just taking care of my children. So that's it, I'm here.

So it's a new innings now?
Yes, absolutely. It's a new experience, and I'm feeling like a newcomer all over again.

How does someone like you who has made love to the camera and vice versa for such a long time feel like a newcomer when you again face the camera? It's the same thing, isn't it?
