Actor Kriti Sanon, whose upcoming films Bareilly Ki Barfi and Lucknow Central are based in Uttar Pradesh, will be learning the local language.
Kriti made her acting debut in Bollywood with Sajid Nadiadwala’s Heropanti and then she was seen in Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol starrer Dilwale.
Since both the films are set in Uttar Pradesh, Kriti is doing a lot of research on the culture, body language and diction of the place, a press release said.
“We are all doing workshops and readings together with director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari for Bareilly ki Barfi. There is someone in our team who is from UP and so he is helping us with the diction. I am also watching a few videos of the UP locals giving speeches,” Kriti said.
“I’m trying to pick up words that they say differently.
My character in Bareilly Ki Barfi is from a small town but in Lucknow Central, I’m playing today’s strong headed and well educated NGO worker,” the actor added.In Bareilly Ki Barfi, Kriti will be seen alongside Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajukummar Rao, while in Lucknow Central she is paired opposite Farhan Akhtar.
