Bollywood's newest foreign import, dancer Lauren Gottlieb starts taking lessons in Hindi
American dancer Lauren Gottlieb, who is all set to act in Remo D'Souza's next film is on a strict prep mode. As she is required to mouth Hindi dialogues in her Bollywood debut, Remo has found her a coach to teach her the language.
Speaking about Lauren, who participated in the US show So You Think You Can Dance in 2007, our source reveals, "Lauren has decided to keep the coach for a while to help her get better with the language.
As soon as she came to Mumbai, 10 days back, she started her lessons and everyday for about an hour, she spends time with her coach." The 23-year-old dancer is so smitten by the language that she keeps practicing on the sets and off. The source adds further, "Lauren is constantly practising her Hindi.
She has asked people to talk to her in Hindi on the sets so that she can get a hang of the language faster. The moment her rehearsals end, she is back at her hotel where she sits with her coach. It is difficult for her to learn a new language but she is determined to get better.
She is showing great improvement and by the time her dialogue portions are needed to be filmed, she will be quite fluent." The dancer-turned-actress says, "Yes, I do have a coach who is helping me to learn Hindi. I have to say some dialogues in Hindi and I want to do it well."
