MUMBAI: Actress Megha Chakraborty is taking classes in the Khari boli dialect to avoid her Bengali accent in the show Krishna Chali London.
Megha hails from Kolkata. She has a natural Bengali touch in the way she speaks.
For her role as a young girl from Kanpur in the show, she was required to learn the local dialect. To make it easy for Megha, the makers hired a tutor to improve her language skills.
Megha said, “I am from Kolkata and I am not well-versed with the Hindi language. When I was approached for the show, my character required me to learn a local dialect of Uttar Pradesh, which is very close to the Hindi language.”
“Because of my difficulty with the dialect, I took classes from the on-set tutor and improved on my language skills. It took me a few days initially but I got better in a few months,” she added.
Krishna Chali London will go on air from 21 May on Star Plus.
