Sridevi’s death anniversary: Filmmaker,Gauri Shinde recalls working with the legendary actress on the sets of English Vinglish

Legendary Bollywood actress Sridevi passed away exactly three years ago. While the actress was exceptionally talented when it came to acting, she was also one of the most humble and kind people. On her death anniversary filmmaker, Gauri Shinde recalled working with the actress on the sets of English Vinglish. She added saying, “I’ll never forget my first meeting with Sridevi. It was more like a blind date for both of us because we were meeting for the first time. She didn’t know much about me, other than that I was Balki’s wife. I call it a blind date because we really fell in love with each other. Sometimes you meet certain people, and you feel an instant click. It was that. As if our souls were just meant to meet, and to do something together, however dramatic it may sound. I absolutely love her; I don't say this because she is a star and I am in awe, but because I really liked her soul."

 
In an interview with Times of India Gauri spoke about her experience of watching the film after Sridevi’s death. She said, "After she passed away, the whole team of the film came together to watch the film once again to celebrate her craft but it was a very, very emotional and disturbing experience for me because it made me realise she's not there. My favourite scene in the film is the one where she, upset with her daughter, shares her sadness with Laurent and both of them talk in different languages. Then she says, 'So good to talk without understanding.”
