Sridevi has given one of her best career performances in English Vinglish. They are many for sure. No doubt, She Conquered, she ruled and we all loved it. Recently The American Bazaar website has made a Top 10 list of the best female centric Bollywood Films in the Last 10 years and of course Sridevi's English Vinglish was one of them. However and unfortunately the movie did not become India’s official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film category in Academy Awards that year as they mentioned in their article.
It was very unfortunate that the Academy award jury in India did not select this film which had a much international appeal to it. We guess politics play a big part in their decisions or else they would not have sent a movie like Barfi the year before which suffered from plagiarism! The Academy Award in the US did not even bother to look at it. It was a lost case already!
