After Kangana Ranaut returns from her holiday–she calls it a ‘break—she will start preparing for her role of the Gujarati NRI struggling across the American cultural cosmopolitanism in Hansal Mehta’s Simran.
To prepare for her part, Hansal has lined up 15 evergreen mainstream Gujarati films for Kangana to view. These include Chello Divas, Amari Duniya Tumari Duniya, Mehendi Rang Lagyo,and Maa Baap Na Aashirwaad.
Informs Hansal, “We’ll be watching very successful commercial Gujarati films, so that Kangna 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. W’re going to have a ball with this one.We’re shooting the film all over the US in Las Vegas, Los Angeles,San Jose, San Francisco and Atlanta.”
Sounds like an all-expenses paid holiday for the director and his leading lady.
