Information about Gauri Shinde

The inspiration for the film English Vinglish came from her mother Vaishali Shinde, who, like most people in India, struggled with the language. She even claims that she made the film to say sorry to her mother.  Gauri Shinde went on to do a course in filmmaking in New York and made a short film there. The film also went to the Berlin International Film Festival.  She draws her inspiration from her own life experiences.  Gauri met her husband and director R. Balki in the office lift of the building where she was shooting an ad film, but for her, Balki was just the new creative director everybody was talking about. She had seen him on a magazine cover where he was sitting on a basketball and remembers smirking at that cover. They got married in 2007 after years of dating.  Does Gauri Shinde smoke: Not Known  Gauri loved New York so much, that she promised herself that she will shoot her first movie there. That really happened six years later.  The film went to the Toronto International Film Festival, and it got a standing ovation from all 2500 people there. It was then that Shinde realized that 'maybe, I was on to something big.  ill not start working on a new film till she is entirely convinced that the story is good enough to be a memorable one, because for her, 'A film is not a 'project'. It is life.  Also, English Vinglish was much anticipated because it was the comeback of Sridevi after 15 years.  Shinde loves to watch love stories like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kal Ho Na Ho and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna and would love to make a romantic movie. Also, she would like to work with Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt again.  Her aspirations towards films started at the fag end of her college days.  Gauri Shinde was born and brought up in the City of Pune, Maharashtra.  Does Gauri Shinde drink alcohol: Not Known
