For `Jiah Aur Jiah`, Richa Chadda to learn Tamil

Mumbai: Actress Richa Chadda, who will be seen sharing the screen space with Kalki Koechlin in `Jiah Aur Jiah`, will have to learn Tamil language for the girl bonding movie, in which the two actresses will be swapping cultural identities.

Delhi girl Richa, who tip-toed into Bollywood as Dolly in `Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!` and made it big as fiery Nagma in the crime thriller series `Gangs of Wasseypur`, will be seen as a Tamilian, while Kalki, who is from Puducherry, will play a Punjabi girl in `Jian Aur Jiah`.

"I will be taking Tamil lessons before we start shooting. It is difficult for me, who is a North Indian, to speak in Tamil, but it`s going to be fun," Richa told reporters while talking about the project.

"I will have to undergo a training in Tamil language to get the right diction and to justify my character," added the actress.

Directed by Howard Rosemeyer, `Jiah Aur Jiah` will be widely shot in Sweden and Richa will start "shooting for the film in October".

"I am looking forward to the film as Kalki is a wonderful person and it will he fun to work with her," added the 24-year-old who was recently seen in `Fukrey`.
