Amitabh turns Saif's speech therapist
Renuka Vyavahare, TNN | Mar 29, 2011, 12.00am IST
The legendary actor has helped Saif perform better in Prakash Jha's next.
Saif Ali Khan will be seen playing a Dalit student and a teacher who
lives in a basti in Prakash Jha's forthcoming film 'Aarakshan'.
As the title suggests, the film apparently deals with the
controversial policies of caste based reservations in government jobs
and educational institutions.
Saif Ali Khan recently revealed how it was Amitabh Bachchan who helped
him deliver those heavy Hindi dialogues for the film.
"Given Manoj Bajpai and Amitabh Bachchan's command over Hindi, it was
Saif who had to train himself extra to match up to their Hindi vocal
skills" revealed our source.
In a recent interview Saif too acknowledged Amitabh's support by
saying, "It was quite challenging to memorise those long dialogues in
Sanskritised heavy Hindi, particularly when it comes naturally to your
co-stars – Amitabh Bachchan and Manoj Bajpai. For Aarakshan, Amitji
advised me to say the dialogues whenever I can: just after waking up,
in the loo, driving the car, in the disco...gradually I internalised
Saif who is anglicised in terms of accent, did a fantastic job in
Omkara too and it would be interesting to see him in Aarakshan too.
