Now I am sure you are jumping up and down right now after reading that headline but just do a few jumps, not full leaps. She is not returning to the screen as lead but with a guest appearance in the film Halla Bol.
Halla Bol stars Ajay Devgan in a role as a Bollywood star, his journey from rags to riches as an actor is the main theme of the film. Since it is set in the film industry, there are many actors who will be seen in small parts of the film.
Rajkumar Santoshi said, “Yes, there are a number of stars in guest appearances. They are friends and they have just played themselves. Not just Sridevi, the film would also see Boney Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Ruby Bhatia, Pahlaj Nihalani, Neeraj Vora, Tusshar Kapoor, Ranjit Kapoor, Mukesh Tiwari, Kareena Kapoor and Lekh Tandon.”
It will be wonderful to see Sridevi on screen again. Her last significant role was in 1997 in the film Judaai and since then the only other film she was in was 2005’s Meri Biwi Ka Jawaab Nahin but that film was not a success at all. We are eagerly awaiting news that Sridevi will soon be starring in a new comeback film, perhaps the rumored sequel to Mr. India but we will have to wait and watch.
One interesting story about Halla Bol is that while Ajay was shooting the title scene for Omkara, Rajkumar Santoshi came to the set with his camera team. He shot scenes of Ajay the actor shooting the song sequence for Omkara and is going to use that in Halla Bol. He also had scenes shot while Kareena Kapoor was doing her role.
We cannot wait to see how this film comes together and eagerly await its release!
