Bollywood diva Sridevi's comeback film English Vinglish got a overwhelming response at the Box Office in it's very first weekend. The film had a opening weekend of Rs.27 crore gross worldwide.
Produced by Eros International in association with R. Balki, the film released across more than 1,000 screens worldwide on 5th October 2012 . English Vinglish is the story of a middle-class woman who is skilled at many things but not the English language and is often the butt of jokes not only within her family but also in the outside world. It is a feel-good slice of life film that takes us on a journey with Shashi Godbole played by Sridevi, who not only wins the heart of New York where the film is set but millions of people around the world. Receiving a standing ovation at the Toronto Film Festival recently, English Vinglish and debutante director Gauri Shinde have already made their mark.
