Iranian superstar Mohammad Reza Golzar says that he is learning Hindi for the first Indian-Iranian film collaboration “Salaam Mumbai!”, also starring Dia Mirza.

“This film is in three languages – Persian, English and Hindi and I’m learning Hindi,” said Golzar on the sets of the film.

“This is the first project between Iran and India and we’re almost finished, three days left. It’s about one month and a half we’re in Mumbai. We took lot of risks because it was the first project. I think it will be a good start, because we made a bridge between Iran and India and I hope it will be so continuously.”

The film has been directed by Iranian director Ghorban Mohammadpou and Golzar said that the film will be releasing in the next two to four months.

“It’s a love story, I’m a medical student, a surgeon, and I fall in love with Dia in this movie,” he said and termed Dia, who also plays a medical student, as “lovely”.

Golzar, had started out as a guitarist for an Iranian music band, and then he ventured into acting, doing films like “Sam o Nargess”, “Kalagh Par”, “Eshgh Tatil Nist” among others. “It was my second movie out of the country (Iran), I have lot of offers right now, I am considering them,” he added.

Dia has uploaded numerous pictures with Golzar on her Twitter profile, including one in the doctor attire and the stethoscope, from the shoot.

    Lol. Butthurt Tamils in the comment section. Language is supposed to evolve, Hindi in fact is derives from middle Indo Aryan languages, of which Sanskrit is the ancestor. Just because it has Persian and Arabic word, it can not be said that it is Semitic or Islamic. Yiddish used by Jews is still considered Germanic language. Tamils are the only people who oppose Hindi.

      Yes, this only proves Hindi and Iranian originated language and the reasons are below why Southern India and West Bengal must opposed Hindi imposition even if risked as being anti national. The dialect of Hindustani on which Standard Hindi is based is Khariboli, the vernacular of Delhi and the surrounding western Uttar Pradesh and southern Uttarakhand. Urdu, literally meaning, "the language of the camp", a dialect of Hindustani, acquired official linguistic prestige in the later Mughal period (1800s). In the late 19th century, the movement standardising a written language from Khariboli, for the Indian mes in North India, started to standardise Hindi as a separate language from Urdu, which was learnt by the Mughal elite. In 1881, Bihar accepted Hindi as its sole official language, replacing Urdu, and thus became the first state of India to adopt Hindi. Khariboli, also known as Khari Boli or simply Khari, Dehlavi, Kauravi, and Vernacular Hindustani, is the prestige dialect of Hindustani, of which Standard Hindi and Standard Urdu. Khariboli, on the other hand, was spoken in the urban area surrounding the Mughal courts, where Persian was the official language. The Persian-influenced Khariboli thus gradually came to be regarded as a prestige dialect, although hardly any literary works had been written in Khariboli before the British period in India.[ The British administrators of India and the Christian missionaries pla an important role in creation and promotion of the Khariboli-based Modern Standard Hindustani

        Hindi is the stani language outsourced from Islamic countries including Iran. The Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a Muslim who is planning the eventual conversion of India into an Islamic country which is why he blabbers around in the Islamic origin language Hindi and refuses to speak Indian languages.
