Mumbai, Aug 8 (IANS) Taaha Shah, who is gearing up for his upcoming film “Ranchi Diaries”, says training one’s tongue to deliver dialogues well is tougher than working on one’s body.
Taaha has worked a lot on tongue twisters to get the dialogues right.
He said: “Training your tongue is harder than training your body. ‘Ranchi Diaries’ for me as an actor is an opportunity to explore another side of my craft and to portray me as a complete different person. Anupam (Anupam Kher) sir and Sattwik Mohanty my director made it happen,” Taaha said at the poster launch here, when he was asked about preparing for the role.
The poster launch was held on Monday at what was Anupam’s first residence when he had come to Mumbai 33 years ago.
Thanking the veteran actor, Taaha said: “This launch event for ‘Ranchi Diaries’ will always be close to my heart considering Anupam sir took us to the place where he started his career 33 years back. Seeing him now and knowing his past — it’s nothing short of self-faith, belief and hard work.”
Asked what advice he would give newcomers, Anupam said: “Be original and be yourself. There is no alternative to hard work and honesty. Don’t try to be someone else and don’t follow anyone else’s rules. There are no rules. People think if you want to be a part of the industry, you have to do certain things, but I broke all the rules.”
Taaha made his debut with Shraddha Kapoor in Y-Films’ “Luv Ka The End” as the suave and polished brat Luv Nanda. The actor was last seen on screen alongside Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra in “Baar Baar Dekho”.
