Mayawati inspires Neha Dhupia

"Who is better to teach the lingo in typical UP style," Dhupia said today at a promotional event here.

The actress was a bit uneasy about the dialect before doing the film, but things became better after she minutely observed Mayawati.

"I have lived a conscious part of my life in Delhi so I am well versed in Hindi, but UP accent was different for me. I had to give more time to rehearsals than shooting," she told reporters.

Dhupia, 30, plays the role of a lady dacoit 'Munni Madam' in the film. "For the first time, I am playing the role of a dacoit. It's up to the viewers to decide whether I have been able to pull out the character efficiently or not."

Dhupia is experimenting with her singing talent in this movie as well. "It was quite exciting to sing in the film. Though I had said no to this song, my director was insistent since he wanted a husky voice," the actress said.
