Ayushmann Khurrana is all set to play a visually-impaired piano player in Sriram Raghavan’s untitled thriller. Apart from taking piano lessons, the actor is also currently learning Marathi for the role. Since the actor plays a character living in Pune, the director wants him to speak a few dialogues in Marathi, and Khurrana wants to get his tone and pronounciation correct. 

The filmmaker is known for blending his characters with the setting. Earlier, Sriram had also made Varun Dhawan speak a few dialogues in Marathi in Badlapur. 
"Sriram’s characters look extremely authentic and real. Sriram feels this is critical to make the character extremely real in its setting," a source from the film's team tells us.

"Ayushmann also wanted to be perfect and so is taking diction lessons before the shoot. He wanted Ayushmann to speak in Marathi, too. Ayushmann loves the language and he is thrilled that he got an opportunity to learn it," the source adds. 
 Khurrana had earlier learnt Bengali for Meri Pyaar Bindu as his character hailed from Kolkata.
