Saba Qamar who will soon be seen opposite Irrfan Khan in their new film ‘Hindi Medium’ did everything to convince the audience she’s a Delhi girl.
She took special lessons to learn the Delhi dialect for her role in the film. There was a coach present with her all the time on set. She even used her free time to perfect the accent and pronunciation of words.
Saba also went street shopping in the most famous Delhi streets and visited social places where most youngsters go to hangout to observe them and try and get a hang of their body language, attitude and behavior.
When the actress was questioned on how the experience was to be a full-fledged Delhi-ite she said:
“It wasn’t easy for me to learn the dialect, simply because I usually speak in a typical Urdu lehja, like aap, hum, and tum. Also, the way Delhi girls are so bold and confident in themselves was a really nice thing to see. I enjoyed playing a North Indian girl in Hindi medium”.
‘Hindi Medium’ is produced by Dinesh Vijan and Bhushan Kumar and is a T-series and Maddock films presentation. It is a slice of life comedy based in the heartland of our country. The film is all set to release on 12th May, 2017.
