Mumbai, Sep 22: Bollywood star Tusshar Kapoor speaking to media says he was not upset with Sridevi's statements on the remake of his dad Jeetendra's starrer 'Himmatwala' of 1983. Tusshar says, "Sometimes misunderstandings happen, but that`s not what I meant. I only showed possessiveness over the film, I liked her a lot in it. I am no one to be upset with somebody who is so senior, so popular, such a big legend."
The film 'Himmatwala' features even Sridevi and is now being remade by Sajid Khan, with Ajay Devgn and southern star Tamannah in lead roles. When media asked Sridevi on her opinion about remake she said that the film was no 'Mughal-e-Azam' hurting Tusshar. Tusshar hit back saying “How can she run down a film that has given her identity in Bollywood and is one of the biggest hits of her career? My dad and Sridevi were terrific in that film and though the critics panned it because it was a potboiler; I defend it because it is one of the films that my father is most identified with."
Sridevi is all set to make a comeback on the silver screen with her forthcoming 'English Vinglish' directed by Gaudi Shinde. 'English Vinglish' is the story of Shashi who does not know English and is made to feel insecure by her family and society at large. Circumstances make her determined to overcome this insecurity, master the language and teach the world a lesson. The movie stars Sridevi, Mehdi Nebbou, Adil Hussain and Priya Anand.
