Janhvi Kapoor On Priya Prakash Varrier’s Sridevi Bungalow Row

Playing a character named Sridevi who dies after drowning in a bathtub in a film titled Sridevi Bungalow? Well, there was no way this film starring Malayalam sensation Priya Prakash Varrier could have escaped coming under the scanner. After all, the trailer gave a glimpse into the plot which seemed eerily similar to how screen legend Sridevi passed away in February last year and then they even used the name not just in the film but also in the title of the film. Perhaps, this is the reason why Boney Kapoor didn’t think twice before slapping a legal notice against the makers of the film.

However, when Janhvi Kapoor was asked to comment on Sridevi Bungalow at an awards show that was held last night, she seemed rather clueless. Neither did she say I don’t want to talk about it nor did she state her opinion. In fact, even before Janhvi could comment, her manager asked her to quitely leave the podium and called off the media interaction.

While it’s left to see what happens with Sridevi Bungalow now that Boney Kapoor has taken legal action. Priya, in her statement spoke in defense of the film and said, “Sridevi is just the name of my character in the movie. Who would want to create such controversies? I think the curiosity surrounding the trailer is good and we have to leave it to the audience to judge if the film is based on the veteran actress Sridevi ma’am.”

Director Prashant Mambully too, has defended the film saying that it was just a “coincidence” that his film tells the story of an actress whose name is Sridevi. He told the leading daily, “In the notice, Boney Kapoor has raised a few objections against our film including the usage of the name and doing a biopic of the actress. He wanted us to alter the name of our movie within 24 hours. We sent him a reply explaining that Sridevi was a common name and there was no logic in objecting to it.
