We last got a proper see at her in the 1997 release Judaai. And ever since then, we have been yearning to have her back on the silver screen. And now, after 14 long years, marriage and motherhood, Sridevi is all set to make her comeback.However, unlike what many may think, Sri who has managed to maintain a great figure even in her life off screen these past years, will not be seen on screen in her sexy svelte avatar. The actress has been asked to put on a few kilos for her role in Gauri Shinde's film English Vinglish. Life seems to have a full circle for Sri who started off her career as a rather chubby cheeked beauty in Solva Saawan over three decades ago.A source revealed, "People are taken aback by how much weight Sridevi has lost in recent months. She is looking nearly anorexic. It is felt that this look doesn't go with what is required in her role as a housewife in search of her identity."For those who have just tuned in, Sridevi plays a woman married into a rich family in the film English Vinglish.The fact that she doesn't know the British language, makes her the laughing stock around. And so, Sri's character enrolls for an English learning course in the UK. There she meets a French guy. Do we need to say what happens next?
Flashback: A plump Sridevi in Sadma However, it is for this very role of a perfect little housewife that Sri has been asked to gain the extra pounds. It's ironic since the actress had gone through a very strict health regime to get into the perfect shape these past few years.In fact, her husband Boney even revealed jokingly, "When the food comes to the table I feel sorry for it. I therefore end up eating for both of us. That's why I'm overweight."Looks like, Boney will have to start sharing his food again. After all, he does want his wife's comeback film to be perfect.
