New Delhi: The mix of Hindi and Tamil speaking crew turned out to be a barrier for the upcoming movie `Holiday: A Soldier is Never Off Duty`. But English made it possible for the team to work together seamlessly.

The leads seems to have taken it in good spirit. In an interesting sequence, the people who were responsible for throwing sand in a song sequence ended up overdoing it as the instructions were being given in Hindi and they didn`t understand it.

"I`ve been a part of other south Indian sets as well. Everyone communicates in English and it`s fun when people from two cultures interact," said Sonakshi Sinha, who is playing the female lead in the movie.

The actress also praised A. Murrugadoss saying that the director is "wonderful" and "explains what is required in a shot very well to his actors".

"We all know English and Hindi. They all know English, but not Hindi. They had a translator. Nothing funny happened (on the set) because we all were in a serious mood while shooting. The film is something very intense," Akshay Kumar quipped.

`Holiday...` is slated to release on June 6th and has Akshay play the role of a Army Officer.
