Actress Asin plays a spirited Maharashtrian girl in her latest outing "Khiladi 786" and had to learn Marathi. She credits her co-star Akshay Kumar for her fluency in Marathi.
"I had to learn Marathi but Akshay was a great help because he speaks Marathi very fluently and all my dialogues have a Hindi accent with a little Maharashtrian touch and this is the first time I am playing such a character, an out-and-out Maharashtrian girl called Indu Tendulkar", Asin said during the promotion of the movie.
The 27-year-old said it was fun and she went all out for the character and hoped that the movie would get a better response. She shares her experience excitedly: "Navvari saris are so beautiful and I had a great time selecting the prettiest ones. I also wanted to meet the sellers to pick up the finer nuances of the language and the traditional way of draping the navvari. I loved the entire experience", Hindustan Times quoted Asin as saying.
Asin's last two movies were great hits and if "Khiladi 786" gets a good response, then it would be Asin's hat-trick.
"Hopefully, keeping fingers crossed for a hat-trick. This year really has been very good for me with 'Housefull 2' and 'Bol Bachchan' doing really, really well. I hope 'Khiladi 786' follows and hopefully breaks the record of the last two ones and I am looking forward to that", IANS quoted the actress as saying.
