Lisa Haydon, who turned to acting from fashion modeling, has credited actor Akshay Kumar for improving her command over Hindi language.
She will be seen next in Shaukeen with Akshay.
The actress has worked in 4 films and is happy that her Hindi is getting better with every next film.
Shaukeen, a remake of the hit 1982 comedy romantic movie of the same name, also features Paresh Rawal, Anupam Kher and Annu Kapoor in lead characters.
Talking to the media, she said; “Yes, Akshay helped me a lot with Hindi. He does half of my lines. In fact, his Hindi is far better than mine can ever be. It is a slow process. I know one can’t learn Hindi in a day. But shooting for so many days and speaking it every day has surely bettered it. Akshay is amazing. He is immensely talented and very encouraging.”
In the remake, she will be reprising the role of Rati Agnihotri. The film was earlier offered to Nargis Fakhri but she walked out of it for her debut Hollywood film Spy.
Lisa recently walked the ramp for designer Monisha Jaising at the day 3 of Indian Couture Week.
“I don’t think about all that. I just feel I was very fortunate to get the film, I see it that way. Till sometime back, people wouldn’t have even considered me for a film like Shaukeen and after Queen released, they started calling me,” Lisa said.
