Ra­jkum­mar Rao picks up ac­cents quickly

HT City - - Entertainment / Lifestyle -

Nowa­days, ac­tors not only do re­search to pre­pare for their char­ac­ters, they also learn new skills to do jus­tice to their roles. Raj Kum­mar Rao (right) is one such name. We’re told that the Na­tional Award win­ner has a knack for learn­ing dif­fer­ent lan­guages and ac­cents. A source close to the ac­tor re­veals: “He learnt sev­eral ac­cents and lan­guages in the past too. He had a Gu­jarati ac­cent in Kai Po Che (2013), a Ra­jasthani one in City Lights (2014), Haryanvi in Dolly Ki Doli (2015), and a Marathi in Shai­tan (2011).”

For his next film, the ac­tor will sport a Malay­alam ac­cent. “I play a Malay­ali boy liv­ing in Delhi. I have lots of friends from Ker­ala in Delhi and Mum­bai, so I took their help to get as close to the ac­cent as pos­si­ble,” says Rao.
