Upen Patel taking lessons from Manoj Bajpai
The experience of working with Manoj Bajpai has changed Upen Patel’s life. Well, at least his Hindi diction has changed for the better. Upen has been taking lessons from Manoj, who is known for his command over the language. During the shooting of Money Hai Tho Honey Hai, Manoj used to insist that Upen speak Hindi with the rest of the cast and crew. According to him, that’s the only way Upen could get over his anglicized accent and improve his vocabulary. Ask Upen to tell us about his new-found teacher, and he says, “Manoj is like a mentor to me. I look up to him as an elder brother. It’s because of him that I’m even trying to speak in Hindi.” Looks like the hunk may finally get to dub for himself in forthcoming films.
