It was fun learning Bengali: Ayushmann Khurrana
Ayushmann told IANS over phone from Mumbai: “I don’t want to call myself a hardcore Punjabi. For Bangla, I had two teachers. In the film, I am speaking in Bangla with my parents. But with Parineeti (Chopra), I am speaking mostly Hindi because she is not playing a Bengali in the film. The nuances in the film are strikingly Bengali. It was fun learning this language.”
“Meri Pyaari Bindu”, which is directed by Akshay Roy, features Parineeti as an aspiring singer.
Asked if he would like to play a singer on screen, Ayushmann said: “Definitely… Because you get to sing your own songs. In this particular film, I’m, of course, not singing because I play a non-singer in the film. Parineeti is playing the singer. If she wasn’t playing the singer, then I would have sung.”
