Debutant Neha Sharma plays an Australian citizen of Indian origin in her upcoming film CROOK. While one would have expected the pretty girl to have gone through voice modulation and accent training to get into the skin of the character, Neha reveals that she didn't have to go through this route.

"It wasn't required because I am not really required to talk in an Australian accent in CROOK", says Neha who is paired opposite Emraan Hashmi in this Mohit Suri directed film, "The film is mostly in Hindi only with very little bit of English. Of course the Australians out there do speak in their characteristic accent but for my character, there wasn't any conscious attempt."

Stating the reason behind this, Neha reveals, "Suhani, the character that I play, is a very simple girl and hence her Hindi is also very regular. Moreover, her interaction in the film is mainly with Indian people so she is not required to put on any accent."

In fact leave aside the accent; she didn't even have to go through any specific workshop to understand the nuances of the character.


"The entire evolution process was an effort that each of us actors had to put ourselves. The backdrop of my character, what are her family values, what does she believe in and how does she react to situations was made very clear. Of course if there were any questions, I had the flexibility to walk up to Mohit or Mahesh Bhatt", she says.

"We were lucky that we all sat down, got our own ideas and perspectives in place. All preparation which happened was in our own head", smiles Neha as she gears up for the 8th October release of the film.
