|Sridevi with the Puli team|
The team of her next release Puli released the first look of the film on her birthday. The poster shows Sridevi looking every inch the royal princess that she plays in the film.
Says the proud and protective husband Boney, “In fact the film’s leading man Vijay tweeted the first look. Ever since then Sri has been flooded with congratulatory messages from all her fans in the South.”
Interestingly Vijay has two actresses Shruti Haasan and Hansika Motwane playing the romantic lead opposite him in Puli. But Puli is being projected as a Vijay-Sridevi starrer.
Says Sridevi’s proud husband, “She is returning to Tamil cinema after nearly 30 years. There is understandably a lot of excitement about her return. But I am surprised at how staunch and supportive her fans are.”
Speaking of fans, Boney Kapoor describes himself as his wife’s biggest fan. “I am the lucky fan who got to marry her.”
To bring in her 51st birthday Sridevi flew to Chennai with her her husband and two daughters. Sridevi’s sister Latha and her family joined Boney, Sridevi for the celebrations.
Says Boney, “Sri wanted to bring in her birthday in Chennai in the home that we have in the city. She wanted to be with her family . In the evening we had a get-together for her close family and friends.”
