Alia Bhatt immerses herself in Tamil culture for 2 States role
Alia, who made her debut with Karan Johar's Student Of The Year in 2012, was also spotted at many south Indian localities.
Actress Alia Bhatt, who plays a Tamilian girl in 2 States, is not just trying to pick the accent but is also learning the typical household culture of a Tamil home.

She is going out of her way to fit the bill as a Tamil Iyengar girl for the movie, based on Chetan Bagat's novel 2 States: The Story of My Marriage. The story is about a Punjabi boy who falls in love with a Tamil girl and the ensuing cultural clashes between them and their families.

A source close to Alia, who is the daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, reveals, "She is learning the Tamil culture and tradition. She has also hired a special Tamilian teacher who will help her to adapt the south Indian culture."

Alia, who made her debut with Karan Johar's Student Of The Year in 2012, was also spotted at many south Indian localities.

She will be seen opposite Ishaqzaade actor Arjun Kapoor in 2 States. They even got together for a photo shoot recently, where Alia wore some typical south Indian saris - a contrast to her modern avatar in her debut movie.

2 States is directed by Abhishek Verma and co-produced by Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala.
