That Deepika Padukone is an actress par excellence is we all know. What with the leggy lass impressing the masses and classes with her stellar performances. Be it ‘Veronica’ from COCKTAIL or Gujarati village belle ‘Leela’ in GOLIYON KI RAASLEELA RAM-LEELA or ‘Meenamma’ from CHENNAI EXPRESS, Deepika has done it all and that too with finesse!
Ask the doe-eyed beauty as to how she manages to gel with her character’s dialect every time with such ease and Deepika reveals, “As far the as the accent of FINDING FANNY is concerned, it’s actually something I enjoyed because I got to speak my mother tongue, Konkani. The film is set in Goa and Goans usually speak Konkani. I got to experiment and improvise. But most importantly it’s a nice feeling when you have command over a language. Having said that, the first few days were very difficult on the sets not just for me but also for the entire team.”
Directed by Homi Adajania and produced by Maddock Films and Fox Star Studios, FINDING FANNY also stars Arjun Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, Naseeruddin Shah and Pankaj Kapoor in the lead. The film is slated to release on September 12, 2014.
