Deepika Padukone learns Bengali for Piku !
After receiving rave reviews for her performance as a Maharashtrian dancer in Happy New Year, Deepika Padukone who will soon be seen in MSM Motion Pictures, Saraswati Entertainment Creations Limited and Rising Sun Films’ Piku is going all out to get under the skin of her character and is learning Bengali for her role in the film.
If that wasn’t all, the actress will also be interacting with locals from Kolkata to understand the finer nuances of the culture .
Says Deepika Padukone, “ I’ve played a Tamilian in Chennai Express, a Gujarati in Ram-Leela, a Maharashtrian in Happy New Year, a Goan in Finding Fanny… and now a Bengali in Piku. It’s always fun to learn a new language. It’s an altogether different learning experience.”
‘Piku’ is a roller coaster ride of a crazy father-daughter relationship essayed by Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone with Irrfan Khan top lining the cast, in a pivotal author backed role. ‘Piku’ also marks coming together of Shoojit Sircar, Ronnie Lahiri and Juhi Chaturvedi, the team that had scripted Vicky Donor.
Produced by MSM Motion Pictures ( a division of Sony Entertainment Network) , in association with Saraswati Entertainment Creations Limited and Rising Sun Films, ‘Piku’ will release worldwide on April 30, 2015.
