Since ages actors have been exploring different languages while working in different roles or language films. They have had to work doubly hard on picking up the language.
Vaani Kapoor is one of such actress. When she did a Tamil movie, the Delhiite had to learn a language alien to her. For that she went to Chennai a week before the shoot of Aaha Kalyanam started just to observe people and their mannerisms. She even watched some Tamil movies. The entire experience, she says, was very tough for her that “It did frustrate me. At times I would pull my hair and there were times when I would get it right immediately,” she smiles.
Being patient seemed to have worked for Vaani as her second film just released in Chennai.
Arjun Kapoor, who recently started shooting for Tevar with Sonakshi Sinha, is all praise for the actress, who was once his sister Anshula’s classmate at Arya Vidya Mandir. “Few people know that Sonakshi and my sister, Anshula, were class mates. I have known her since those days, when both the girls used to keep giggling and hang out often after school. Sonakshi is still the same,” said Kapoor. The actor also added that she is extremely professional and he is happy with the way Sinha has carved a niche for herself in the industry. The duo have only shot for a week and Kapoor is looking forward to upcoming schedules of the film. “Bahut mazaa aayega,” he quips.
A horsey affair
Randeep Hooda loves polo, so much so, that he has bought a polo team. It’s not yet functional though. “I have my own team, but it’s turning out to be much more expensive than I thought so it’s not yet functional. I’ll have to do many more movies, and stay in a rented apartment, which isn’t very glamourous,” says the actor.
But Randeep loves horses, and can’t stop himself from buying them. He adds, “I’ve just got my seventh horse. I get them to fill my stable, get attached to them, they grow old, and I can’t let them go. Whenever I see another horse I like, I can’t resist buying it. That’s where all my money goes.”
Now that’s some kind of passion!
