The recently released trailer of Yash Raj Films' "Daawat-e-Ishq" sees Parineeti Chopra and Anupam Kher speaking Deccani Urdu (Hyderabadi). The actress gives credit to director-writer Habib Faisal for helping them pick up the accent.

"Habib sir knows Urdu well so half our job was done in the dialogues. Anupam sir and me, we both are from Punjab, so we only listened to the director, who is also the writer," the 25-year-old said here.
But everyone doesn't talk in the Deccani language, that's why we have kept a language that everyone understands," she added.
On the other hand, Aditya Roy Kapur's character speaks Lucknowi Urdu in the film.
The south Mumbai guy too depended on Habib Faisal to deliver his dialogues with panache.
"I didn't learn Urdu, I did just basic stuff with Habib sir and that is what helped me. But it (Lucknowi Urdu) is not very thick and too pronounced in the film," Aditya said here.
"Daawat-e-Ishq" is slated for a Sep 5 release.
