Earlier Katrina Kaif only had to work on her Hindi diction; and then she got into Urdu diction as well.
And now Ms Kaif has to work hard on her Arabic diction for the Saif Ali Khan-starrer ‘Phantom’, directed by Kabir Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.
If you thought that poor Ms Kaif only had to learn acting, think again now.
The actress, who is shooting for the film now in Punjab is working round the clock learning Arabic because she wants to dub for the film herself, having dubbed for her last few movies as well.
Kaif plays a girl in the film from the Middle East and hence, is required to speak Arabic. But then Kaif who has spent quite a few years in India and in Bollywood now clearly wants to fight the language barrier.
Unconfirmed reports state Kaif's character will be based out of the UAE, and most likely Dubai.
So her training is said to focusing on the Arab sensibilties from this part of the Gulf.
The role that she plays in the film requires the actress to not just speak in Arabic, but also look and sound bona fide when she essays the said role.
Kaif whose film ‘Phantom’ will clash with her other movie 'Jagga Jasoos' on Gandhi Jayanti on October 2, surely wants to look and sound different from her Ranbir Kapoor-starrer.
And she certainly hopes that both Ranbir and Saif rake in the bucks at the box office.
