Ajith was exceptionally kind. He had a lot to do with Sridevi Ma’am 

for him to agree to do the cameo, claims Gauri Shinde 

Gauri Shinde made her directing debut in 2012 with the Sridevi-starring film English Vinglish 

The movie proved to be a pleasant surprise 

pleasing both the public and the critics, and it is now recognized as 

the movie that brought Sridevi back to the entertainment industry 

Four years after releasing English Vinglish, Shinde gave 

the audience another uplifting story in the form of Dear Zindagi, 

starring Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt
