Vani Learns Tamil and Telugu

IndiaGlitz [Monday, January 13, 2014]

After her debut in 'Shudh Desi Romance', the B-town diva Vani Kapoor has come all the way South, for her Tamil-Telugu bilingual remake of Hindi blockbuster 'Band Bajaa Baaraat'. In an interaction with the media, Vani opens up on her South Indian experience, her excitement over working with Nani, her admiration, learning new languages, and lots more. "Director Gokul Krishna wanted me to work on the remake of 'Band Baja Baaraat'. It is a sheer coincidence that when I was auditioned for 'Shudh Desi Romance', I was given a scene from 'Band Baja Baaraat' to enact. But I was sceptical about 'Aaha Kalyanam', given that I did not know a bit of Tamil or Telugu. Gokul however insisted that I do this, and I feel happy to have taken this opportunity. Though I tend to compare the shooting trends of North against those here in South, it was exciting shooting in Chennai. Before I was roped in, all I knew about Nani was that he was a big name here and that he did the makkhi in 'Naan Ee'.

But it was a pleasant surprise to me that an actor of such her stature is so composed. He is a very supportive actor and I felt very comfortable working with him. I came in with barely any knowledge on the languages, but now I can understand Tamil and Telugu quite well. Gopal is very strict when it comes to dialogue delivery, and wants me to learn all the lines by heart, for the take to go flawless" says Vani. She is quite accustomed to South Indian Woods now, so who is it that she admires here? "Ajith and Mahesh Babu" comes the quick answer.
