Actress Shabana Azmi has found an inventive way of spending her time while she waits for her fractured leg to heal. She has been learning Punjabi at home for the dubbed Punjabi version of Gurinder Chadha’s
It’s A Wonderful Afterlife.
“I’ve been dubbing Gurinder’s film. The Punjabi version is called
Hai Mar Java
. I never knew I could speak Punjabi!
It’s the first time, and I’m enjoying myself. A girl named Shweta, who is a professional Punjabi dubbing instructor, is guiding me on the right pronunciation and diction. She seems pleased with the results,” she said.
