Vidya Balan is presently taking tuitions in a particular UP dialect for her upcoming film, ISHKIYAAN, which is being produced by Vishal Bharadwaj and directed by his assistant director Abhishek Chaubey.

Vishal and Abhishek who have written the script of ISHKIYAAN has the same dialect that one saw (heard) in Vishal's OMKARA (2006). When the script was narrated to Vidya first, she expressed her inability to deliver the lines fluently in that chaste UP dialect. Apparently the actress' mother tongue is South Indian and though she speaks Hindi well, she is not so comfortable speaking the rural UP lingo. Vishal and Vidya then mutually agreed upon having a special tutor for her to learn the dialect and get well–versed with the perfect tone of delivering it.

One can remember Konkona Sen Sharma (being a Bengali) too having the same problem of delivering her lines in the required UP dialect during OMKARA. Vishal had then himself tutored her for few days and gave her confidence. The film turn out as a major hit and Konkona went on to win a National Award for her character in OMKARA. Looks like Vidya might just do that!

Producer Vishal Bharadwaj's ISHKIYAAN stars Vidya opposite Arshad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah. Vidya's character in the film has few gray shades and she is supposed to fool the uncle–nephew duo of Naseer and Arshad in it.

The film shoot begins from mid October and will be majorly shot in the parts of eastern UP and Delhi. Vidya is expected to master her command over the dialect by then.
