Just one film old and Alia Bhatt is already going multi-lingual. If the petite actress is in the role of a South-Indian in 2 States (an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s book with the same name), Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania has her as a Punjabi girl. Bhatt confirmed this but did not want to divulge any more as the shooting of this Dharma Productions’ film is still in progress.

Presently promoting Highway in which she plays a Delhi girl from a rich family, Bhatt says that she’s wrapped up shooting for 2 States. “My character is almost the same as the girl’s character in the book. She’s not a caricature but a modern-day girl who doesn’t speak with a typical South-Indian accent. She speaks a little Tamil, but only at home,” says Alia.
Interestingly, the Student Of The Year actress, learnt Tamil for the film. “I had fun speaking in Tamil and it was exciting because I didn’t understand what I was speaking. I had a tutor before we began shooting, and then I also had someone on the sets to correct me if I went wrong,” she adds.

However, the actress missed singing and dancing in the film. “I missed doing that in 2 States, but Arjun (Arjun Kapoor) who plays a Punjabi guy in the film, got to sing and dance. But I’m glad to be doing the song and dance stuff in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania,” states Alia, who is a self-confessed fan of the quintessential Hindi cinema song-and-dance sequences.
