The phenomenally talented and popular Alia Bhatt is on to the biggest challenge of her life. Learning Telugu for S S Rajamouli’s RRR. She’s taking Telugu classes from a private every day.
Alia is confident she’s up to the challenge. “It is a challenge, yes. I can’t deny that. Telugu is really a tough language to learn. But it’s a very expressive language. I want to understand the nuances of the language, why certain words are pronounced the way they are, and what they convey. Only then will I be able to express my character’s feelings.”
Alia is putting her soul and then some more, into getting the Telugu right. “Believe me, these days an achievement for me is when I can learn and say a whole line in Telugu.” Speaking on being offered a role by the mighty Rajamouli Alia says, “Saying yes to the offer was a no-brainer. When I started my career as a leading lady there were three filmmakers I really wanted to work with. I got launched by one of them (Karan Johar) and now I’m working with the other two Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Rajamouli.”
