Playing a cop comes easy to South superstar Prithviraj; however, the actor had quite a challenge at hand essaying his career's 16th cop role for his upcoming film AURANGZEB under the Yash Raj banner since he plays a true-north Indian inspector, for which the actor had to overcome the challenge of speaking in the local dialect.

Not only did he have to flawlessly deliver his dialogues while dubbing for the film but he also plays narrator in several parts of the film, for which the actor put in a lot of hard work to polish his Hindi diction and unlearn most of what he knew.

Prithviraj Says, ''When Atul (director, Sabharwal) approached me, he'd told me that giving the voiceover would be a bigger challenge than playing a cop in the film because that's a role I have played multiple times in my films down south. I accepted the challenge and hope I've lived up to his expectations.'' Adding that, ''Unlearning Hindi was tough. I knew how to read, write and speak the language, but my accent was different from a north Indian. So I underwent a four month workshop to perfect my accent and prepare for my role as the narrator.''
