Mumbai: Actor Hrithik Roshan, who had shared screen space with actress Sridevi as a child artist, is full of praises for her comeback film 'English Vinglish'. "I have seen the promos and they look amazing. Even my friends have liked it. One can make out that it is a touching story. It is such a nice script...amazing," Hrithik said while meeting Sridevi last evening at the Mehboob studios here.
Sridevi, who ruled the silver screen with films like 'Sadma', 'Chandni', 'Mr India' and 'Lamhe', will be back on the big screen after a gap of nearly 15 years.
Hrithik was at a studio in suburban Bandra to shoot for an ad-film and when he learnt that Sridevi was present there, he went to meet her. "I am dying to see the film. I am sure it is going to be a winner all the way," he said. In 'English Vinglish', Sridevi plays the role of a housewife, who enrolls for an English speaking course in order to please her husband and family. Directed by R Balki's wife Gauri, the film will release on October 5.
Hrithik, who was to go for an outdoor shoot, has postponed his plan because he wants to see the film. "I would be there to see the film on October 4. I was supposed to leave for an outdoor shoot. But I will go by next flight," Hrithik said. On the occasion, Sridevi praised Hrithik saying he is a good actor with great dancing abilities.
"I was very excited to see him here. He is a very spontaneous...warm and affectionate person. He is an all rounder. He should be in Hollywood films," Sridevi said. In 1986 film 'Bhagwan Dada', Hrithik played the role of a young boy called Govinda and share screen space with Sridevi.
"I did a film with her. I used to make so many mistakes but she was very nice to me and made me comfortable," Hrithik said.
