Actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who will be seen playing a Bengali novelist named Abhimanyu Roy in the forthcoming film Meri Pyaari Bindu, says it was fun learning the language.
Being a true blue Punjabi, how difficult was it for him to learn
Ayushmann told IANS over phone from Mumbai, "I don't want to
call myself a hardcore Punjabi. For Bangla, I had two teachers. In
the film, I am speaking in Bangla with my parents.''
''But with Parineeti (Chopra), I am speaking mostly Hindi
because she is not playing a Bengali in the film. The nuances in
the film are strikingly Bengali. It was fun learning this
Meri Pyaari Bindu, which is directed by Akshay Roy, features
Parineeti as an aspiring singer.
Asked if he would like to play a singer on screen, Ayushmann
said, "Definitely... Because you get to sing your own songs. In
this particular film, I'm, of course, not singing because I play a
non-singer in the film. Parineeti is playing the singer. If she
wasn't playing the singer, then I would have sung."
