To equip herself for her role of the Gujarati NRI struggling across the American cultural cosmopolitanism in Hansal Mehta’s Simran
Kangana is watching a lot of Gujarati films. Her director Hansal Mehta has lined up 15 evergreen mainstream Gujarati films for Kangana to view. These include Chello Divas, AmariDuniya Tumari Duniya, Mehendi Rang Lagyo,and Maa Baap NaAashirwaad.
Informs Hansal, “We’re watching very successful commercial Gujarati films, so that Kangana gets a hang of the milieu and accent. We’ll be also catching Gujarati plays for which we’ll travel to Ahmedabad and Bangalore.”
Hansal wants Kangana to get the accent , body language and attitude of a ‘Gujju behn’ in America . Simran, written by Apoorva Asrani, will be a happy film.
Says the director, “After Aligarh which was emotionally very exhausting, we wanted to do a light-hearted fun film. We’re having a ball with this one.We’ve shoot the film all over the US in Las Vegas, Los Angeles,San Jose, San Francisco and Atlanta.”
