In his Bollywood debut 'Aiyaa' South superstar Prithviraj didn't have much scope for dialogues. But when it came to his second film, the actor found it tough to sound a perfect Hindi cop...
While he has played the police character several times for south screens, it was not a cakewalk for Prithviraj to do the same role in Hindi. Referring to his language barriers, IndiaGlitz's sources shared that the actor had quite a challenge at hand essaying his career's 16th cop role, for his upcoming Yash Raj Films' 'Aurangazeb'. Since he plays a true-north Indian inspector, Prithviraj had to overcome the challenge of speaking in the local dialect.
Not only did he have to flawlessly deliver his dialogues while dubbing for the film but he also plays narrator in several parts of the film. For this, the actor said to had put in a lot of hard work to polish his Hindi diction and unlearn most of what he knew. Revealed Prithviraj, "When Atul (director, Sabharwal) approached me, he'd told me that giving the voiceover would be a bigger challenge than playing a cop in the film because that's a role I have played multiple times in my films down south. I accepted the challenge and hope I've lived up to his expectations."
Adding that, "Unlearning Hindi was tough. I knew how to read, write and speak the language, but my accent was different from a north Indian. So I underwent a four-month workshop to perfect my accent and prepare for my role as the narrator."
