Multilingual Priya hopes to learn Marathi now
Mumbai: Actress Priya Anand, soon to be seen opposite Jackky Bhagnani in 'Rangrezz', is well-versed in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Bengali, English and Spanish languages. Now she hopes to become proficient in Marathi as well.
"My grandmother was Marathi, unfortunately I didn't pick up too much Marathi because she passed away when I was really young. But now that I am in Mumbai, everybody around me is going to teach me Marathi," the 26-year-old said here on Wednesday in an interview.
Born and brought up in Chennai, Priya's father is half Telugu and half Marathi while her mother is a Tamilian.
She has featured in a few Tamil and Telugu films like 'Vaamanan' and 'Rama Rama Krishna Krishna' respectively.
Priya has a soft corner for the Bengali language and said: "I like Bengali, as a language I find it very beautiful. I hope to do a few Bengali films and I hope that it happens soon."
Priya was seen in 'English Vinglish' last year and says language is certainly not a barrier for her and the script is the only criteria for doing a film.
"Language is not a barrier for me, it is very easy for me to pick up languages... I don't go by the language a film is going to be made in, I go by the technical team and the story," she said.
Directed by Priyadarshan, 'Rangrezz' will be Priya's second Bollywood film after a small role in 'English Vinglish'.
Producer Vashu Bhagnani plans to release 'Rangrezz' a night before March 22, Friday, - it will be open for the audience's at theatres after 8:30 p.m. on March 21.
