Sonu Sood will next be seen in an Indo-Chinese production that also stars Jackie Chan. In the film, the Bollywood actor will not only perform some heavy-duty stunts, but will also deliver a few dialogues in Mandarin.
“Sonu doesn’t know how to speak Mandarin. So, in order to speak the language fluently in the film, he has to learn it, and work on his accent. He doesn’t want to look uncomfortable while delivering the dialogues. That is why he has hired a tutor to train him,” says an insider.
Apparently, the actor is enjoying the experience of learning a new language. “Sonu, who has also acted in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada films, is fond of picking up new languages,” adds the insider.
It is believed that Jackie has also been teaching Sonu the nuances of Mandarin in between shots. “Sonu is spending a lot of time learning Mandarin. It is known to be one of the most difficult languages, but he is working very hard on it,” says the insider.
Sonu is also ensuring that his kids, Aayaan and Ishant, also get the hang of it. The actor couldn’t be reached for a comment.
