Sri Devi was in town recently. The actress is making a comeback to movies playing an NRI housewife in English Vinglish (Hindi). It’s trailers have received a good response and the film is titled Aangilam Vaangilam in Tamil.
When quizzed on who her favorite heroines were down South, she chose Tamanaah and Kajal Aggarwal as her current favourites. Tamanaah who had blockbuster hits in Karthi’s Paiyaa and Naan Mahaan Alla is keeping away from Kollywood at the moment, as she a fresh project coming up in Bollywood titled Himmatwalla. Infact a movie with the same title was made back in 1983 directed by K. Raghavendra Rao featuring Jeetendra and Sridevi in lead. Speaking about Tamanaah, Sri says, “I have watched some of her movies. She is really beautiful and dances really well.” Tamanaah’s contemporary Kajal Aggarwal too received a pat on her back, when Sri Devi said, “I also love Kajal’s performance in Magadheera .” Kajal has got the ball rolling with top actors in Tamil right now, having Vijay’s Thuppaki and Suriya’s Maattrraan coming up as two big releases. Well it certainly would be a gratifying experience for both Kajal and Tamanaah, receiving appreciation from numero uno Sri Devi – a role model for every actress. We wonder why Anushka and Trisha were off her list.
