Why Sridevi turned 'reclusive' while shooting for 'Mom'

Erstwhile screen-queen Sridevi perhaps, has never got her due recognition as a sterling ‘performer’,  having won Filmfare awards for two Hindi films like ‘Chaalbaaz’ and ‘Lamhe’. Even her riveting performance (remember her tear-jerking toast sermon-speech at the wedding) in ‘English Vinglish’ was merely nominated for a Filmfare Award.  

Currently, Sri’s latest release ‘Mom’ directed by ad-guru Ravi Udyawar, where she plays the avenging angel, boasts of  a volatile yet sensitive gut-wrenching performance. Not many are aware that during the shoot of her high-octane (melo)dramatic scenes of ‘Mom’, Sridevi , who loves to chill-out in the company of her family and close friends, went into a self-imposed solitary confinement, especially after the ‘pack-up’.

Apparently, doting husband-producer Boney Kapoor had to stay in a separate room in the same hotel, as Sri wished to stay aloof from her family, including her visiting daughter Jhanvi Kapoor. All this was because she wished to ‘remain’ all the time in her intense screen-character Devki’s  ‘hang-over’,  even when she was ‘not’ facing the camera.  

Maybe, some of today’s ‘over-confident’ gen-now star-kids and newcomers need to emulate and imbibe this level of dedication to better their performances which in turn may help them last much longer in ‘fickle-fame’  Bollywood.
