Imagine Ayushmann Khurrana in a dhoti-kurta, speaking in Bengali. He will surely sound as sweet as ' Misti Doi.'
The Punjabi-born, during the launch event of the song ' Ye Jawaani Teri,' from his upcoming film 'Meri Pyaari Bindu,' said, 'I always used to feel I am a Bengali- a Bengali in a Punjabi.'
This statement came after his co-star Parineeti Chopra told media here that Ayushmann learned a lot of Bengali in this movie.
'Ayushmann learned a lot of Bengali in this movie. He has turned half Bengali,' she said. During the event here, the ' Dum Laga Ke Haisha' actor even said a sentence or two as a proof.
While describing the movie 'Meri Pyaari Bindu,' he said, 'This story is more than 'Premer Golpo,' which means 'the movie is more than just a love story.'
He even said a dialogue from the movie, 'Bindu Shankar Narayanan- ek kathae bola jete pare bipod,' which means 'Bindu Shankar Narayanan- in one word is trouble.'
However, he has not spoken much in Bengali in the movie, other than the conversation with his parents.
On a related note, in his first movie ' Vicky Donor,' Ayushmann was seen dating a bong girl, portrayed by Yami Gautam. 'Meri Pyaari Bindu,' directed by Akshay Roy, is slated to release on May 12.
