Mumbai, Dec 25: "English Vinglish" is set for its television premiere Dec 29, and its director, debutant Gauri Shinde, can't contain her excitement.
The movie narrates the story of a simple housewife and how she emerges from the shadow of her husband and family life to carve her own niche.
"With the television premiere of 'English Vinglish', so many women, who were not able to get out and watch the film, will be able to do that," Shinde said in a statement.
The movie received a thumbs up from the audience.
"Women have come up to me and said it's their own story and how some men have said that they have changed their behaviour towards their wives. That's the biggest and greatest feeling for me. I can't wait for the nation to watch it," she added.
"English Vinglish" marked actress Sridevi's comeback to the industry after 15 years. With her flawless performance, Sridevi not only won the hearts of millions of middle-class Indian housewives, but also overshadowed the young actresses.
The movie will premiere on Zee Cinema.
