The actor who is currently in Mysore to shoot his next film has taken it up as a challenge to learn Kannada. Apparently, the actor overheard some unit hands talking in an unfamiliar language. On investigation, he found out it was Kannada.
A source says, “Shahid is always looking to learn new things. When he heard some crewmembers speaking in alien tongue, he wanted to know what it was. He was intrigued. He summoned them and demanded to know what language they were talking in.”
And now we hear that Sasha has already picked up a few basic words in the South Indian language. “He has even been interacting in Kannada with a few locals and unit members. He listens to their pronunciations very carefully,” adds the source. During his off-time the actor engages the locals in conversation to learn more from them.
