Newbie actress Alia Bhatt is becoming quite an expert in portraying different communities of India. If she is seen in the role of a South-Indian in ‘2 States’ (an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s book with the same name), ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ has her playing a Punjabi girl. The news was confirmed by the Bhatt girl but she did not further expand on it as the shooting of this Dharma Productions’ film is still in progress.
According to sources, Presently promoting ‘Highway’ in which she plays a Delhi girl from a rich family, Bhatt says that she’s completed shooting for 2 States shooting . “My character is almost the same as the girl’s character in the book. She’s not a caricature but a modern-day girl who doesn’t speak with a typical South-Indian accent. She speaks a little Tamil, but only at home. I had fun speaking in Tamil and it was exciting because I didn’t understand what I was speaking. I had a tutor before we began shooting, and then I also had someone on the sets to correct me if I went wrong.”
Alia confessed that she missed singing and dancing in the film. “I missed doing that in ‘2States’, but Arjun (Arjun Kapoor) who plays a Punjabi guy in the film, got to sing and dance. But I’m glad to be doing the song and dance stuff in ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ as I am a big fan of the Bollywood’s cinema song-and-dance sequences”.
Well this girl is truly turning multilingual with a vengeance.
