Talking about ‘Judaai’ actress, Vidya had earlier said, “I am an ardent fan of Sridevi, I was nervous (while doing the film). But having said that we are recreating the song Hawa Hawai from Mr India. It is a tribute to her, we are having fun. There is only one Sridevi.”

She said, “I was brought up with a feeling that I was the most important person in my life, and I think that’s what makes all the difference. When I was offered Ishqiya, I felt that there were very few scripts which had such a juicy role for a woman and when I read it, I absolutely loved it.”
