Actor Man­jari Fad­nis (be­low) is a ver­sa­tile per­son, who, apart from act­ing, is also fond of singing and learn­ing new lan­guages. The Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na (2008) actor, who has al­ready lent her voice to the song, Azha­gana Neeyum, in the Tamil thriller Muthi­rai (2009) and has even sung a lul­laby, Ore Nindya, in Warn­ing (2013), is work­ing on a few sin­gles.

“I en­joy singing a lot and have been think­ing of re­leas­ing sin­gles for quite some time now. One of the songs is al­most ready and I’m plan­ning to re­lease it as part of an al­bum. Col­lab­o­rat­ing with mu­si­cians is also on my mind. I’m in talks with a few of them,” says Man­jari, who is keen on do­ing more play­backs for films.

Talk­ing about her other in­ter­est, Man­jari says that she has al­ways been drawn to­wards learn­ing dif­fer­ent lan­guages. Hav­ing worked in Ben­gali, Tel­ugu, Tamil, Kan­nada and Malay­alam films, the actor says that ev­ery time she acted in them, she made an ef­fort to learn the ba­sics of each of the lan­guages to por­tray her char­ac­ter con­vinc­ingly.

“I’ve done a Ben­gali film and many films down South. Each time I’ve worked on a new re­gional film, I’ve tried to pick up the lan­guage. I’ve also ir­ri­tated as­sis­tant di­rec­tors and di­a­logue writ­ers by ask­ing them to teach me the ba­sics of the lan­guage. I’ve pushed them to help me learn the pro­nun­ci­a­tion and ex­plain the mean­ing,” she says, adding, “I’ve learnt French and I want to learn another

for­eign lan­guage.”
