Rana Daggubati’s language trouble in ‘Dum Maro Dum’

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

Southern actor Rana Daggubati, who prepared full-on to play a Goan rock musician in the Hindi movie ‘Dum Maro Dum’  (DMD), says he had to get rid of his Hyderabadi accent and learn Goan Hindi to fit into the role.

“I can play the guitar. But I don’t know how well I play it. I had to go into preparation not just playing the guitar but to look convincing as a Goan musician. I can’t say much about plans to take me on stage. The producers will know better,” said Rana, who is currently dubbing for his new Telugu film.

Directed by Rohan Sippy, the film revolves around the lives of six Indians who meet in Goa, and how their lives change forever once involved in drug mafias. The film starring Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu and Prateik Babbar is releasing April 22.

Both Rana and Prateik had to learn both Goan body language and the spoken language.

“We became really close. He’s now like my younger brother. We’ve kept in touch even after the shooting. We were bonded in our nervousness as virtual newcomers. Since it was live sound, I had a Hindi coach with me throughout.

“I had to get rid of my Hyderabadi Hindi and learn Goan Hindi. It wasn’t easy because the two kinds of Hindis were mutually incompatible. I had to unlearn one kind of Hindi and then learn a new kind. Since I was brought up in Chennai, I speak fluent Tamil and Telugu. I am confused about which language to sing in,” said Rana, grandson of veteran Telugu film actor-producer D. Rama Naidu and son of producer D. Suresh Babu.

Rana will be rushing  toMumbai to promote DMD and then rushing back to Hyderabad because he has a Telugu release ‘Nenu Na Rakshasi’ a week after DMD.

“It’s a hectic time. I am not nervous because DMD is not really a debut for me. I’ve already gone through that acid test with my Telugu release ‘Leader’ last year. We shot DMD in Goa. So I don’t know what it feels like to be a part of Mumbai,” he said.
