Mumbai: Imran Khan says he didn`t have to work on his accent to play the South Indian character in his forthcoming film ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’.

"I didn`t work on the accent as my character, Shriram, is a South Indian guy who has studied abroad," Imran told reporters Wednesday during the promotion of the film at a radio station here.

Imran`s character in the romantic-comedy is a party lover and a high-on-life fellow and his life takes an interesting twist when he falls in love with a social worker, essayed by Kareena Kapoor.

"My character is a misfit in his family. His father calls him `kaala dhabba` (black spot). He is the shame of the family. Neither does he speak in Tamil, nor does he follow the customs," he added.

A Dharma Productions film, ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ has been directed by Punit Malhotra and is slated to release Nov 22.
