Having done two Bengali films, Bollywood actress Soha Ali Khan still gets her mother veteran actress Sharmila Tagore to speak the dialogues for her to get the Bengali accent right.
“I can't speak Bengali at all but I can understand it. It's difficult because I have had to memorise my lines with much more effort. It's a lot more work than required in Hindi and English films,” Soha told IANS.
“I get my mother to say all of my dialogues and I record them and listen to them later to better my accent,” she added.
The actress was seen in Anjan Das's “Iti Srikanta” and in Rituparno Ghosh's “Antar Mahal”. She is now doing another Bengali project with Aparna Sen.
“I'm doing 'Goinar Baksho' (The Jewellery Box) with Aparna ji. It's a film that we have been planning to make since a long time and finally the dates and stuff have been decided. Am really excited, it's a lovely script,” Soha said.
