After being featured at the prestigious 2012 Toronto International Film Festival where the film and Sridevi’s performance received a standing ovation – not to mention the international press hailing the actress as the ‘Meryl Streep of India.’, Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish traveled to the Marrakech International Festival that contained a strength of over 15,000 people where the film was screened with French subtitles .

In fact the popularity of the film and leading lady Sridevi had upped the crowd that followed the team around, so much so, that security had to be doubled.

Reveals Gauri Shinde “With every new screening whether it was first screening at Toronto or the all India release or Marrakech, it has been overwhelming with the kind of response the film received. From regular women to kids (which I didn’t expect at all) to teenagers responded passionately to the film and told me how affected they were”.
