I'm more comfortable in Hindi, than in Tamil or Telugu: Prithviraj
Tutor helps South star Prithviraj get a hang of Hindi that is indigenous to the national capital
Aiyyaa was South actor Prithviraj’s foray into Bollywood. Though he had very few Hindi dialogues in the film, the actor states he is quite comfortable in the language. However, for his upcoming film, the actor has been taking lessons from a Hindi coach, who’s teaching him how the language is spoken in Delhi.
It is usually believed that South actors are not so fluent in Hindi. However, Prithviraj says, “I’m, in fact, more comfortable in Hindi, than in Tamil or Telugu!” However, his Hindi dialogues in his upcoming film have an accent that is more prevalent in Delhi. A source says, “Prithvi’s language tutor taught him the attitude and the accent with which Dilliwalas speak Hindi. The actor spent a month in Mumbai practising his language skills.”
