Just when the jury is out on which Indian film goes to the Oscars this year, comes the news that could possibly clinch the matter in favour of Gauri Shinde's English Vinglish. Apparently, Meryl Streep has seen this highly influential film about a Maharashtrian woman struggling with the English language in America and has given her go-ahead to a film with the English Vinglish heroine Sridevi. The film entitled Cowboys & Indians is to be directed by American superstar Robert Redford's daughter Amy Redford. Interestingly, Sridevi has appointed no casting agent in the Us. Apparently, both Amy and Meryl have shown a keen interest in this film solely on the basis of Sridevi's sterling performance in English Vinglish. And now the script awaits the approval of Sridevi's elder daughter Jhanvi. Says Sridevi's doting husband Boney Kapoor, "Yes, Sri has received the script for the project that you've mentioned with Meryl Streep. »

Sridevi to star in Meryl Streep film 'Cowboys and Indians'?

20 September 2013 7:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bollywood actress Sridevi has been approached to star in a film with Meryl Streep.

The film entitled Cowboys & Indians is to be directed by Robert Redford's daughter Amy Redford.

Boney Kapoor confirmed that his wife had received the script and was considering the role, according to Bollywood Hungama.

The producer said that "in principle the project sounds right as a follow-up to English Vinglish for Sri".

Streep reportedly saw Sridevi's portrayal of an Indian housewife struggling with language and cultural barriers in the Us in Gauri Shinde's 2012 comedy/drama.

The 47-year-old actress, who recently said she wanted to "emulate Meryl Streep's career" would be given an equal role to the Hope Springs star in the film.

Earlier this year, Sridevi was awarded the Padma Shri - one of India's highest honours - for her contribution to the arts.
