Arjan becomes a Marathi 'mulga'

Versatile: Arjan Bajwa in 'Hide And Seek'.

One actor who has gone ahead and taken the trouble to real learn another language is Arjan Bajwa. The young man has to play a Marathi speaking guy in his next film — 'Hide and Seek', and it hasn’t been an easy character to play for this Delhi boy.

He underwent training for sometime to learn the language so that he could get the pronunciation and nuances right for the character. “It was slightly tough as it was a complete alien language for me. All my life, I have either spoken in Hindi, English or Punjabi, but Marathi was one language, which really made me sit up in my seat. It is a bit similar to Hindi but there are loads of letters that get twisted and I also had to be convincing enough in the speech,” says Arjan.

“Also, my character is completely different from the previous roles, which were more sophisticated in their approach. Here, I had to be really unkempt and always have a frown on my face. But it has been a really good learning experience for me. Now I can speak to the local people of Mumbai in their own language,” he laughs.
