After playing a rustic villain in Omkara, Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan is now playing a Sikh in his forthcoming film Love Aaj Kal and took Punjabi classes to get the right accent for the role.
"Saif plays a Punjabi in Love Aaj Kal. But he didn't have the accent of a Sikh guy. So Saif mastered it by taking training for Punjabi diction. Saif got himself a tutor to train him to speak the language," a source said.
In Love Aaj Kal Saif has teamed up with Deepika Padukone. It is Saif's debut production and is directed by Imtiaz Ali of Jab We Met fame.
