A section of the 1993 film "Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja" where Sridevi donned the look of a Japanese girl is now being used to promote the actress' comeback film "English Vinglish", which releases in Japan Tuesday.

"English Vinglish", which became a hit, will release all over Japan, dubbed in Japanese.

The screen diva's producer-husband Boney Kapoor has agreed to let the "English Vinglish" producers Eros International use footage of Sridevi from his mammoth production "Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja" in which she is dressed as a traditional Japanese woman in a kimono and with make-up that made her look strikingly Japanese.

Confirming this, Boney said: "Yes, there is a section in 'Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja' where Sri was dressed up as a Japanese girl. She looks so authentic as a Japanese that I've offered to let the producers use those images of Sri to promote the Japanese release of 'English Vinglish'."

Sridevi is ecstatic about the impact that "English Vinglish" has made globally.

"After being widely released in Germany, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and now in Japan, there surely is reason to feel proud and elated. It's very heartening to see the film reach out to different countries and different groups of people," she said.

"English Vinglish" director Gauri Shinde added: "I feel super awesome. I was there for the promotions in Tokyo last year and I was completely overwhelmed. Seeing the response, the distributors decided to increase the number of screens for release."
