Sridevi, who plays the role of a queen of an ancient kingdom, is shown in myriad moods - rage, manipulation and triumph. This is Sridevi's comeback Tamil film, almost 30 years since she starred in 1986 movie Naan Adimai Illai.
Of her role in Puli, Sridevi told news agency IANS: "This is the kind of the role you get once in a lifetime. It excited me so much that I jumped at the opportunity without much contemplation. Contrary to everything I've done so far in my career, what I've done in this film will always remain special." (Also Read: Puli Team Treated me Like Queen Off the Sets Too, Says Sridevi )
