Punjabi boy Ayushmann Khurrana, who essays a Bengali babu in his next film Meri Pyaari Bindu, says it’s not as tough as it would have been had he starred in the same role in a Bengali film.
“It (Meri Pyaari Bindu) is commercial Hindi cinema, so the Bengali is slightly toned down,” said Ayushmann Khurrana.
“I speak Bengali with my family in the film, but yeah there are certain mannerisms, words, way of speaking, body language and the clothes I am wearing, that have to look natural. It’s not as difficult as playing a Bengali in a Bengali film. In a Hindi film, I have to just see and take care of my nuances,” Ayushmann said in a statement.
Meri Pyaari Bindu directed by Akshay Roy, stars Parineeti Chopra as the female lead. The film is set to release next year.
