Janhvi Kapoor taking Urdu lessons for her next project ‘Takht’?
Bollywood as an industry has grown leaps and bounds and everything has now become professional. Gone are the days of actors going through their motions and just turning up at the set without any preparation. Actors and actresses leave no stone unturned in preparing for their roles and the current generation of cine stars are setting the benchmark.
Actress Janhvi Kapoor believes in giving 100% and is always open to suggestions and ideas. The ‘Dhadak’ actress knows that the industry is very cut throat and if you don’t step up, you get sidelined. Now, according to reports, late Sridevi‘s daughter is apparently taking Urdu lessons for Karan Johar‘s periodical drama ‘Takht’.
A source quoted by Mid-Day said, “Over the past four months, Janhvi has been training with a language coach to ace the finer nuances of Urdu, including diction and pronunciation. Since the film is said to be based in the Mughal era, she has also brushed up on her history.”
The young diva has been reading material includes ‘Aurangzeb: The Man and the Myth’ by Audrey Truschke, and ‘Storia Do Mogor’ by Niccolao Manucci. The actress is taking due diligence in getting her accent spot on.
Janhvi is reportedly also doing a biopic on IAF woman pilot Gunjan Saxena. The work ethic and honesty, shown by the starlet has to be applauded. ‘Takht’ features an ensemble cast including Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vicky Kaushal, and Alia Bhatt among others. This historical drama will be helmed by Karan Johar.
