Arjun Kapoor is often known to delve into his characters to make sure he portrays them right. BizAsiaLive.com has learnt that the actor is making sure his Punjabi is correct for his next movie ‘Mubarakan’ in which he’ll be seen in a double role.
Kapoor is thought to have taken the help of a dialect coach. The actor said in a statement, according to Mid-Day, “Being brought in a joint family and hearing Punjabi being spoken by my grandparents all the time really stuck with me. When we started reading sessions, I realised I could recall the tonality from my childhood. And this made the process a little easier than I had imagined”.
Director Anees Bazmee also added, “We had a dialect coach for Arjun for the first two days. But Arjun was so quick to learn that we didn’t need the coach beyond that. It took Arjun just two days to get into the skin of both the characters he is playing. And I feel that is commendable”.
‘Mubarakan’ also stars Anil Kapoor, Athiya Shetty and Ileana D’Cruz.
