Mumbai: French actress Isabelle Adjani is set to make her Bollywood debut with ‘Ishkq In Paris’, and the film`s director Prem Raj says she came fully prepared, despite not knowing the Hindi language.
"The biggest thing for her (Adjani) was to learn Hindi. I was amazed. She came after doing her homework. She just said that if `I mess up the accent, then handle that because I don`t know that`," said Raj.
The director says this dedication is the reason why actors command respect.
‘Ishkq In Paris’, actress Preity Zinta`s debut film production, will be premiered in Paris.
"There is a lot of buzz in France. It is necessary that we should have the premiere there. It is a big step for Isabelle. She is coming in a Hindi film for the first time and is speaking Hindi. Her role is very big and it`s not a cameo," he said.
Adjani, 57, is a two time Academy Award nominated actress.
