Rekha takes cues from Sridevi!

By Hindustan Times

Last year, Sridevi made a successful return to Bollywood with English Vinglish. Her character Shashi's resolve to learn English and earn her family's respect won her a lot of appreciation. It seems Rekha, who was last seen in the 2010 dud Sadiyaan, is playing similar character in her next
film, Super Nani. Co-star Sharman Joshi reveals, "It's an exciting, out-of-the-box film, in the space of English Vinglish. It's also something Rekha has done before - lots of drama, comedy and entertainment."

Explaining the similarity of Rekha's character to Sri's Shashi, Sharman says, "It's about the disappearance of grace and dignity in a grandmother's life, and how she gets it back with the help of her grandson."

Super Nani is adapted from a Marathi play, and also stars Randhir Kapoor opposite Rekha. An excited Sharman says, "The play, Bai Mari Boundary, is a family comedy-drama. Besides Rekha, I'm getting to work with Randhir Kapoor, another legend. For me, it's a great learning experience on and off the sets."

Sharman earlier worked with Rekha over a decade ago in Lajja (2001). "I played her son in that film. This time, I play her grandson," he says. His co-star in the film will be Indra Kumar's daughter, Shweta Kumar.
