Sridevi is the latest addition to the Vijay - Chimbudeven film

It's a No for Rajini and Kamal, but a Yes for Vijay

Apr 15, 2014

One of India's most respected actresses, Sridevi, made her big comeback to Bollywood in 2012 with English Vinglish, a much-loved and highly successful movie which continues to rule the roost till date in some international markets. To cash in on her popularity in Tamil and Telugu, English Vinglish was also dubbed in these languages and met with a decent response down South too.

Sridevi was all along approached for films in Tamil, opposite the likes of even Rajini and Kamal but she didn't accept them for some reason. Now, we have come to know that she has been floored by director Chimbudeven's script for the upcoming Ilayathalapathy Vijay film, which will go on floors sometime in August this year. Sridevi is reported to have accepted to work in this film, which is supposed to have a fantasy base.
We had earlier reported that Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone is also likely to be roped in for this film, along with ace composer A.R.Rahman. To add more weight to this already heavyweight team, Shruti Haasan is also touted to be in the running for a possible role but her involvement in the film can be ascertained only after a few more days' time.
We will keep you posted as always.
