Imran Khan masters Haryanvi Language!

Imran Khan has hired a language coach to teach him the Haryanvi dialect for his next film.

Aamir Khan has been known for his perfectionism and now it appears Imran Khan is keen on following mamujaan’s footsteps. Imran — who recently made news for making an attempt to master the tapori lingo for his upcoming gangster saga — has hired a language teacher to perfect the finer nuances of the Haryanvi dialect.

A source says,

Popular for his chocolate boy looks and rom-coms, Imran is all set to break free from stereotyping with his portrayal of sturdier characters on screen. He is playing a villager in director Vishal Bhardwaj’s forthcoming project, based in Haryana.

Understandably, the language is going to differ and the 29-year-old actor doesn’t wish to leave any aspect of his performance to chance. As a result, the actor has taken upon himself to learn the finer nuances of the language and has hired professional help for the same.

Imran apparently is finding the whole experience amusing as well as enriching. The actor is also undergoing training in the kind of language spoken in Mumbai by goons for his film with Milan Luthria. The source adds,

Imran absorbs well and is really quick at picking up languages. He wants to be fluent in them.
