Riteish Deshmukh has turned Marathi language tutor for his co-star Tusshar Kapoor for their upcoming sequel of Kya Kool Hain Hum. From mouthing
dialogues like ba-ba-boo-boo Tushki is now moving on to some intricate Marathi lines, while doing a gag on Ajay Devgn’s Singham in one of the scenes to be shot in Goa.
Tusshar apparently is not very fluent in Marathi. So he decided to take help from his co-star and friend Riteish who is a complete Marathi mulga. The actor says, “I am not playing a Marathi character. It’s a role of an aspiring actor.
Therefore, he does all these impersonation. Singham belongs to Maharashtra, so Riteish is helping me pick up the language and the correct accent. I know a little bit of Marathi but not as much as him.”
So is he taking special classes? “Not really. We just chat a lot in between shots and he teaches me Marathi words and how to say them. Our training sessions are pretty informal,” the actor points out.
Speaking on how Riteish fares as a Marathi teacher, the actor laughs and says, “Oh, he is damn good! If nothing else (Bollywood) works, he can always fall back on his Marathi teaching talent.”
Five Marathi phrases that Tusshar finds very cool
1) Kasa kay? Bara ahe?
2) Chal kahitari masti karuya!
3) Chavat mulga.
4) Ekdam jhakkas.
5) Locha jhala! Gapp bas aata.
