On the sets of 'English Vinglish', Sridevi can be found with paper and pencils, drawing with rapt attention

What do stars do in between shoots? While some take up reading, others like Aamir Khan exercise their grey cells with chess. Sridevi who is making her comeback in Gauri Shinde’s ‘English Vinglish’ used her free time on sets by indulging in her favourite pastime- drawing.

On the sets, Sri was always ready with crayons paper, pencil and paints. The moment a break is called in, the actress goes to her corner and starts sketching whatever catches her fancy. One can see her drawing with rapt attention, oblivious to the chaos and commotions of the sets. “When it comes to drawing, Sri is almost childlike and uses all her free time between shoots but the moment the break gets over, she is back focusing on the shoot,” says a source from the set.
