Hard taskmaster Mani Ratman has asked actor Aditi Rao Hydari to learn Tamil for her upcoming yet-untitled Tamil romantic-drama. She may or may not dub her lines, but the director wants her to mouth her lines well.

“Director Ratnam has asked Aditi to learn Tamil before the commencement of the shoot. While it’s not known whether she will dub her own lines, Ratnam sir is very particular that she learns the language and mouths her lines perfectly,” said a source from the film’s unit.

The principal shooting of the project starts from July or August. Also starring Karthi, who will be seen playing a pilot, the film will have music by AR Rahman.
