After 15 long years, Sridevi decided to make a comeback with Gauri Shinde’s ‘English Vinglish’. The film garnered praise from all corners and gripped everyone with its heartfelt concept and left the audience teary-eyed. The 49-year-old got a standing ovation at the Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto. The global audience sitting for the premiere loved it so much that people were applauding the film for at least 10 minutes.

The film's delicate subject and Sridevi's endearing performance touched the hearts of many. Not only did the audience love her sensitive performance but actors like Amitabh Bachchan and her daughters, Jhanvi and Khushi, were also moved by the subject.

The film has done well everywhere and has received rave reviews and Sridevi is the only actress whose comeback film was given a thumbs up. Sri is now keen to do more films and continue her run in Bollywood. In fact, she has signed on a few projects as well but she is not ready to disclose anything yet. Reports seem to suggest that ‘Mr India 2’ might be in the pipeline.
