All set for her Telugu debut, actress Mrunal Thakur reveals that she has undergone two months of intensive Telugu language training to perfect her on-screen pronunciation for the role in ‘Sita Ramam’.
Hanu Raghavapudi, the official South Indian debut director of Mrunal, has directed the film starring Malayalam superstar Dulquer Salmaan.
Mrunal received private language instruction from Suvarna Majji, who sometimes personally instructed Mrunal at her home in Mumbai and other times through telephone and video calls. Mrunal underwent a month of training, spending two hours a day perfecting her Telugu pronunciation and grammar for ‘Sita Ramam’.
Speaking about her role in ‘Sita Ramam, Mrunal said, “I’ve always been drawn to the interior of India. The characters that emerge from these environments are likeable, engaging, complex, and most importantly, very real. I love It’s a challenge, so the fact that people are praising how I shaped myself as Sita in the movie (based on their reactions to the trailer and songs) is a great addition to me.”
“I took it upon myself to make sure that my diction in the film was perfect. I usually try to put myself in the shoes of my characters, so I did another diction training for Sita Ramam,” the ‘Super 30’ explains actress.
Mrunal Thakur will next be seen in ‘Gumrah’ with Aditya Roy Kapoor and ‘Pippa’ opposite Ishaan Khattar, alongside ‘Sita Ramam’.
