Asin Goes Marathi In 'Khiladi 786'

Asin, who is currently shooting for Ashish R Mohan's film Khiladi 786, will be playing the character of a typical Marathi mulgi.

Asin has been trying everything that she can to play the character to perfection in this film, co-produced by Akshay Kumar and Himesh Reshammiya.

As the shooting for an elaborate wedding sequence is underway, the actress has been spotted on the sets in a navvari green kashta sari, and wearing ornaments that you would associate with a typical Marathi lady.

A source from the unit was quoted saying that although she has played a bride in several of her films, this was a unique experience for Asin. In her recent films, Ready and Housefull 2, she played a bride but wore the usual lehengas.

She plays the role of Maya, that of Mithun Chakraborty's sister. Mithun's name in the film is Tatya Tukaram Tendulkar.

Being from the South, the language and the customs are a bit different for the actress and so, she is picking up the nuances of the language from her co-stars.
