The phenomenally talented Alia Bhatt is on to the biggest challenge of her life. Learning Telugu for S.S. Rajamouli’s RRR. She’s taking Telugu classes from a private tutor every day.

Alia is confident she’ll be able to learn the language and dub her own dialogues. “It is a challenge, yes, I can’t deny that. Telugu is a tough language to learn. But it’s a very expressive language. I want to understand the nuances of the language, why certain words are pronounced the way they are, and what they convey. Only then will I be able to express my character’s feelings.”

Alia is putting her soul and more into getting the language right. “Believe me, these days an achievement for me is when I can learn and say a whole line in Telugu,” the Kalank actress said.

Speaking on being offered a role by the mighty Rajamouli, Alia says, “Saying yes to the offer was a no-brainer. When I  started my career as a leading lady there were three filmmakers I really wanted to work with. I got launched by one of them, Karan Johar, and now I’m working  with the other two — Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Rajamouli.”
