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. »

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