Vidya Balan is presently taking tuitions to learn a particular UP dialect for her upcoming film Ishkiyaan. The film stars Vidya opposite Arshad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah. Vidya's role in the film has a few grey shades and she is supposed to fool the uncle-nephew duo of Naseer and Arshad in it.
Ishkiyaan is produced by Vishal Bharadwaj and directed by his assistant director Abhishek Chaubey.
Our source reveals, "When Vidya was given the final draft of the script, she expressed her inability to be very fluent in mouthing the UP dialect which one saw in Vishal's Omkara which was incidentally co-written by Ishkiyaan director Abhishek Chaubey along with Vishal. The trio then mutually agreed upon having a tutor for Vidya for 15 days to get her well versed with the language and speak in the right dialect. Vidya is a South Indian but she is picking up the language very fast. The film shoot begins from mid October."
Konkona Sen had faced the same language problem while shooting for Omkara and that time, Vishal had taught the language himself. Konkona had gone on to bag the Best Supporting Actress National Award for that role. Looks like Vidya might just do that!
