Saba Qamar is all set to make her much awaited Bollywood debut in Hindi Medium opposite Irrfan Khan. The duo will be portraying a Delhi-based couple living in Chandni Chowk, who aspire to move with the upper echolons of society.

While it’s not a big secret that Saba always gives her utmost best to every role, this time, the actor seems determined to outdo herself.

According to a report in DNA, the Lahore Se Aagay star took special lessons to learn the Delhi dialect and do justice to her role as a Delhi girl.

The latest buzz is that the actor was so dedicated to her role that there was a coach present with her all the time on the sets of Hindi Medium. She utilised her free time to perfect the accent and pronunciation.

Saba, who also starred in Sarmad Khoosat’s Manto, roamed the streets of Delhi to observe people, their body language, behaviour and attitude.

Talking about it, Saba stated, “It wasn’t easy for me to learn the dialect, simply because I usually speak in a typical Urdu lehja, like aap, hum and tum. Also, the way Delhi girls are so bold and confident in themselves was a really nice thing to see.”

Presented by T-Series and Maddock films, the movie has been produced by Dinesh Vijan and Bhushan Kumar.

Hindi Medium is slated to release on May 12th. Judging by how good the trailer looks, we really can’t wait for this one!
