I envy Gauri for having Sridevi in her debut film: Balki

By Hindustan Times

Writer-director R Balki, who is ecstatic over the first look of his wife Gauri Shinde's debut film English Vinglish, says he is jealous of her, considering she got to work with Bollywood diva Sridevi as a first timer. Balki has co-produced his wife's directorial debut film in which the senior actress is making her comeback after nearly 15 years.

English Vinglish is a fun-filled slice-of-life movie exploring the impact of not knowing English language in everyday life.

"I envy Gauri.. like I wanted to work with Sridevi first but she did. And then I wished I could have thought of this idea, but she did. I am actually jealous of her.. the film made me feel jealous. Both of the things I did not do, so I just had to sit and watch," Balki said.</
