MUMBAI: Actress Asin Thottumkal had to learn Marathi for her upcoming film Khiladi 786 and says co-star Akshay Kumar was a great help.
“I had to learn Marathi but Akshay was a great help because he speaks Marathi very fluently and all my dialogues have a Hindi accent with a little Maharashtrian touch and this is the first time I am playing such a character, an out-and-out Maharashtrian girl called Indu Tendulkar,” the 27-year-old said here while promoting the film at a mall.
“So, it was a lot of fun. I went all out for the character and hopefully it will have a good response,” she added.
Asin’s last two films Housefull 2 and Bol Bachchan were superhits and she hopes Khiladi 786 turns out to be even a bigger hit.
“Hopefully, keeping fingers crossed for a hat-trick. This year really has been very good for me with Housefull 2 and Bol Bachchan doing really, really well. I hope Khiladi 786 follows and hopefully breaks the record of the last two ones and I am looking forward to that,” Asin said.
Directed by Ashish R Mohan, Khiladi 786 hits theatres on December 7.
