2012 Most Intriguing
"Sridevi may seem reserved on the set, but she is listening to every single thing that's being said. Her antennas are always up. When she acts, she speaks to her audience, which is a very Indian method of acting. I learnt that quality of conversing with the audience from her, because I follow the western style of acting where your audience is just a fraction of your world. Throughout English Vinglish's shoot, I was devouring her performance which was overwhelming for me.""
