In a recent chat with Hindustan Times, Arjun said that she is a master of her craft and has motivated generations of aspiring actors. He also feels that what she has accomplished much more than what anyone else has achieved. Arjun added that he is sure her film English Vinglish will be watched by the entire nation and that the media, her fans and Bollywood has always loved her. When asked if he has seen her film yet, he told HT that before his father and Sridevi left for Toronto, he had seen the first and second theatrical trailers and thought they looked good.
