Will Sridevi do her ‘Hawa Hawai’ again?

Sridevi in English VinglishAlthough her performance in her big comeback film English Vinglish got her much critical appreciation, Sridevi has to decide if she will agree to do a cameo.

A few days ago, Fox Star Studios sent feelers to the talented actress to make a special appearance in Amole Gupte’s upcoming film Hawaa Hawaai. The out-and-out masala movie stars Amole’s son Partho Gupte and Saqib Saleem and is being shot in various locations in the city.

The famous Mr India song, Kehte Hain Mujhko Hawa Hawai, gave Sridevi the tag of Miss Hawa Hawai.

A source close to the film told Mirror: “The makers strongly feel that she should be a part of the film since its very name is derived from one of Sridevi’s most famous songs. Her shoot is being planned for January. She will be seen in a few scenes. However, she is yet to give her nod to the cameo.”

Saqib SaleemImpressed with Saqib Saleem’s sensitive performance in Bombay Talkies Amole Guote promptly signed him for his film Hawaa Hawaai which is scheduled to release on April 18th, 2014. Saqib plays the lead character of a skating coach in the film and his getting himself trained for the role.

“Amole and I spent a lot of time together before the shoot so that I could become familiar with his style of film making. I am lucky to have had the opportunity to work with path-breaking directors like Karan Johar and now Amole Gupte, so early in my career. I had watched Stanley Ka Dabba and wanted to be a part of Gupte’s kind of cinema. As an actor, I am hungry for diverse roles and my sole aim is to learn as much I can from him,” says Saqib.

Along with polishing his skills as a skater he is even hitting the gym regularly to look athletic. Amole Gupte is surprised with his dedication and discipline and says, “Frankly, I was not prepared for it, but I am proud to have Saqib on board. Whatever little we have shot has left me impressed.”
