Loveratri actor Aayush Sharma travelled across Gujarat for the film; picked up local lingo, slangs
The Aayush Sharma, Zarina Hussain-starrer is a love story that develops over the festivities of Navratri
Actors Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain, who are marking their debut with Salman Khan's Loveratri will be essaying the roles of Gujaratis in the film. To perfect the accent and mannerisms of a native of the state, Aayush travelled to several places in Gujarat.
"My director Abhiraj was very certain about understanding how the people in the Gujarati community are. He did not want to make the character a caricature. A lot of times we make characters from different regions very loud with exaggerated accents in a bid to be authentic. I didn't want to sound over the top, so we decided that I should go to Gujarat.” Ayush said.
During the recce for the shoot of Loveratri, Aayush went to Ahmedabad and Baroda and interacted with the youth there to understand and imbibe their lifestyle and culture.
Aayush further stated that after visiting Gujarat, he noticed that there was no pronounced local accent. "They talk exactly the way anybody in Mumbai would speak Hindi. What they do have is local slang words and keywords that a Gujarati person would use in conversation. That is typical of every city and that is what I picked up. The character needs to sound authentic at the end of the day.”
The Abhiraj Minawala directorial is a love story that develops over the festivities of Navratri and it all set to hit the theatres on 5 October.
Saif Ali Khan on replacing Abhishek Bachchan in Bunty Aur Babli 2: "I was told it is a different movie and it is not the same character (that Bachchan played). Aditya Chopra obviously knows what he is doing, so my character has been tweaked because I was playing it."
John Abraham, once an experimental actor and symbol of unassuming masculinity, reduced to a demolishing machine today
Ironically, John Abraham was a punch-up, anti-establishment emblem sex symbol in his prime. The most unobvious of male leads — handsome, and yet approaching something other than the sum of his handsomeness.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 is not a sequel we didn't need. But it's a follow-up that needed much more.
