City boy Prateik was challenged by the native Hindi he had to speak in Aarakshan
It wasn’t acting opposite Amitabh Bachchan that challenged him, apparently it was the dialogues which made him work harder than usual. In a recent interview he said, “Acting in Aarakshan was a challenge because of the language. We’re not used to speaking that kind of heartland Hindi. I enjoyed the process of learning my lines and mastering the nuances of the dialogues, along with creating a unique space for my character.” Now that director Prakash Jha has managed to get the film released (the toned down version), we are looking forward to see if Prateik has done justice to the role.
