Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddique is a skilled actor, who is known for his unusual performances. He has shown his different shades of acting and once again he is going to be seen in a unique role in BOMBAY TALKIES.
The actor will be seen speaking in Marathi. For this particular character the actor also learnt Marathi. Nawaz attended the workshop to get trained in the language. The actor will be playing a Marathi man for the first time on-screen. Nawaz has never spoken Marathi earlier. So, it was quite an experience for him as he belongs to North. In the film he plays a role who is resident of Lalbaug.
''I have learned a new language; approximately 40 per cent of my dialogues are in Marathi. I attended a special workshop to learn the language and be able to deliver my dialogues perfectly. It was quite challenging, so I hope people appreciate the effort we have put into making this a special film.''
Since the film will have a nation-wide release, director Dibakar Banerjee has decided to add subtitles with all the dialogues in Marathi. ''There are many instances in the film where Nawaz's character speaks in Marathi, so all those lines will have subtitles in English for people who do not understand the regional language,'' Dibakar confirms.
