Bollywood diva Sridevi, who makes her big screen comeback after 15 years, says she's yet to get used to the aggressive marketing strategies.

"Promotions are different experience altogether. It used to be just few magazines earlier in which we used to talk about the film. But today it's quite scary, but I am really getting used to it and I have started enjoying it," Sridevi told reporters here Monday.

Looking elegant in a white top and red trousers, she was here to promote her forthcoming film "English Vinglish" along with director Gauri Shinde. The film releases Friday.

Sridevi is surprised to see how the industry has changed over a decade.

"I was quite surprised with the improved technology, expert technicians and so many new things have come up," she said and thanked director Gauri for making her comfortable.

"The whole atmosphere was very positive and I really enjoyed it," she added.

What is amazing for the 49-year-old actress is the way filmmakers are experimenting with bold subjects.

"It feels really nice to see how so many new subjects and bold subjects are being picked up as people are willing to see something different. I am extremely happy to know that filmmakers are also ready to take chances," she said.

    I wish they would go back to old strategy. If the movie's good then the audience will love it. It gets so annoying when a movie promos get plastered everywhere.

    I agree with you Suchi-Virmanian. As Sushmita Sen said "when I came into the industry I was told if Sridevi is in a movie no one asks hero kaun hain?"

    is the BEST actress ..

    Love her movies...

    btw.. urvash we think Sri is older cause she has acted in more than 300 Movies. She is been there since the 60's. That is why she is wayyy more experienced and talented than most actresses if not all.

    She acted with ANR (Telugu) as a main lead and then with his son ( nagarjuna) as the main lead. I wouldn't be surprised if they cast her with his son now who is an actor and still excel. She like that..

    She is def. the first female and only superstar. Run the movie just on her shoulders. She does not need, never needed a male lead to support her for the success of a movie.
