I chose to understand my character over learning the language: Anveshi Jain

Anveshi Jain Interview

Anveshi Jain is excited beyond words to be a part of Gujarati’s most expensive movie G, which will release on today. Also starring Abhimanyu Singh and Chirag Jani, the Mahendra Patel directorial is a family entertainer with elements of action, comedy, drama and love.

Talking about her experience of working in the Gujarati industry, Jain says, “It was lovely to work with a team which was extremely professional in the approach. They had everything organized in the best way, from script to shooting schedule. Despite being so disciplined, the team was extremely supportive and cooperative. None from the set ever made me feel that I wasn’t from their industry. They helped me when I forgot my lines (As I had poor command over the language).”

Since it is Jain’s first Gujarati movie, how much time did it take for her to learn the dialect?

Throwing light on the same, Gandii Baat actress states, “I had two options – either to focus on learning the language (Gujarati) or pay attention to understand my character well. I chose the latter because flaws in diction are easy to hide during dubbing. Moreover, it wasn’t easy to learn a new language within a week.”

It was once again the movie’s team that helped Anveshi with the language issues. “I was given a script that had Gujarati dialogues written in English. This saved a lot of time and energy, which otherwise would have been wasted in getting the utterance right,” added Anveshi.

In the movie, Anveshi plays the character of Vidya – an orphan – who only has her sister to take care of. The story revolves around how a powerful and independent personality Vidya meets a cop named Samrat, how they get into frequent tussles and finally fall in love. But what’s the price Vidya pays to be in this relationship is revealed towards the end.
