Mindy Kaling had tough time learning Hindi

Wednesday - June 13, 2018 1:36 pm , Category : ENTERTAINMENT
Los Angeles June 13 (IANS) Actress Mindy Kaling who has Indian roots says it was difficult to learn Hindi for her forthcoming movie "Ocean s 8".
"When I was cast in Ocean s 8 I didn t think there would be much prep but I ended up doing more than on any movie I ve worked on " Kaling said in a statement to IANS.
"I had to become fluent enough in Hindi that I could speak it with ease in a couple of scenes and that wasn t easy because I don t speak any Indian languages.
"I was raised speaking English only because my parents spoke two different Indian languages so the only language we all had in common was English. I also shadowed a jeweller so that I could learn how to hold all the instruments of the trade " the actress said.
In the film Kaling plays Amita a jewellery maker who turns a $150 million diamond necklace into seven smaller pieces in the name of a heist.
A sequel to Steven Soderbergh s "Ocean s" trilogy "Ocean s 8" stars Sandra Bullock as ringleader Debbie Ocean the sister of George Clooney s character Danny.
After getting out of jail she recruits seven women -- Cate Blanchett Rihanna Anne Hathaway Kaling Sarah Paulson Awkwafina and Helena Bonham Carter -- to help her pull off a jewellery heist at the annual Met Gala in New York.
The Warner Bros Pictures project will release in India on June 22.
