Bollywood star learns Arabic for new movie
Bollywood superstar Katrina Kaif is taking on a new challenge; learning Arabic for an upcoming movie role
Bollywood superstar Katrina Kaif is taking on a new challenge; learning Arabic to play a photojournalist in her upcoming movie, Phantom.
The British Indian film actress has already shot scenes of the movie in Beirut alongside the male lead of the movie, Saif Ali Khan.
Kaif’s spokesperson confirmed her attempts to learn Arabic to the Hindustan Times.
A source revealed to the newspaper that “Katrina wants to know the language well so that her inflections are correct while dubbing her lines in the language.”
“She will continue practising it to get the pronunciation right. She’s rehearses even when she takes breaks during shoots,” said the source, according to the Hindustan Times.
Kaif spent her youth in Hong Kong, China, Japan and then traveled to France at the age of eight. She intermittently lived in Switzerland, Poland, Germany, Belgium, and other European countries before moving to Hawaii for a stint before her family’s move to England. As a British citizen Kaif works in India on an employment visa.
