Imran Khan learns Haryanvi for Vishal Bhardwaj’s next
Shakti Shetty (MID-DAY; July 24, 2012)
Aamir Khan has been known for his perfectionism and now it appears Imran Khan is keen on following mamujaan’s footsteps. Imran — who recently made news for making an attempt to master the tapori lingo for his upcoming gangster saga — has hired a language teacher to perfect the finer nuances of the Haryanvi dialect.
Our source says, “Popular for his chocolate boy looks and rom-coms, Imran is all set to break free from stereotyping with his portrayal of sturdier characters on screen. He is playing a villager in director Vishal Bhardwaj’s forthcoming project, based in Haryana.
Understandably, the language is going to differ and the 29-year-old actor doesn’t wish to leave any aspect of his performance to chance.” As a result, the actor has taken upon himself to learn the finer nuances of the language and has hired professional help for the same.
Imran apparently is finding the whole experience amusing as well as enriching. The actor is also undergoing training in the kind of language spoken in Mumbai by goons the sequel to Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai with Milan Luthria. Our source adds, “Imran absorbs well and is really quick at picking up languages. He wants to be fluent in them.”
