Kiara-Advani

Actress Kiara Advani had to learn the distinct local lingo of Ghaziabad for her upcoming starring role in Indoo Ki Jawani.

Kiara plays a girl from Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, in the Abir Sengupta directorial, which revolves around her misadventures with dating apps.

“Abir knew exactly how he wanted Indoo to walk and talk. Since he has also written the dialogues of the film it made the process easier. We spent a couple of months before commencing shoot prepping for the character and creating a fun and quirky Indoo, her style of talking and dialogue delivery is distinct and easily identifiable,” Kiara said.

Abir makes his directorial debut with “Indoo Ki Jawani”, set to release in theatres on December 11. The coming-of-age comedy also features Aditya Seal and Mallika Dua.

Kiara was recently seen in the Akshay Kumar-starrer horror comedy “Laxmii”.
