Upen Patel is getting desperate by the day in his efforts to discard his heavy British accent.

Seems he’s made Manoj Bajpai his Guru to learn Hindi and has been requesting him to correct his pronunciation and diction.

The two got along like a house on fire during the shoot of Money Hai To Honey Hai.

Patel has even christened Bajpai Guru. And now, whenever Patel is in town, he heads straight to Bajpai’s pad every evenings for lessons in Hindi that go on forever.. much to Mrs Bajpai’s annoyance.

Neha doesn’t like Patel intruding when she’s looking forward to spending quality time with her hubby, after a hard day’s work.

His, not hers. By the way, Patel was learning Hindi from Govinda some months ago. Wonder what happened? Did he get scared of Chi Chi after he slapped someone on the sets? Or shouldn’t we ask?
