‘I personally feel that this is the best time to be in the film industry’
Having spent almost five decades in the film industry and with almost 300 films to her credit — in Bollywood and regional cinema — actor Sridevi (right) is happy with the state of affairs of the film industry. She is glad that the audience is now demanding a change, which the filmmakers are happily catering to.
“I am very happy that the audience is willing to see something different [from what has been shown to them in the past]. It’s not only for those who enjoy watching films, but also the fact that it’s giving a push to industry people to deliver good content,” says Sridevi, who was recently seen in the revenge drama Mom.
The actor, who has been a part of hits such as Sadma (1983), Chaalbaaz (1989), Chandani (1989) and Mr India (1987), says that working with different content on screen also gives a sense of challenge to artists.
“It’s a great thing for an actor as well because you progress in your work only when you get to do different [kinds of] films. I personally feel that this, indeed, is the best time to be in the industry,” adds Sridevi.
About constant speculations pertaining to her daughters, Jhanvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor’s Bollywood debut, Sridevi says, “As a mother, I am definitely concerned and worried about them. But the time has changed and you have to accept and be positive about it, and give your best.”
