Katrina makes Bhojpuri debut!

8 02 2010

A source said, “Considering that Katrina speaks Hindi with difficulty, she had goose bumps when she was asked to speak in Bhojpuri. However, Jha gave her three tutors – Manoj Tiwari, Ravi Kishan and Manoj Bajpai – all of whom can speak the language with great ease. Katrina was willing to learn. However, they could manage to teach her only one line as it was difficult for her to understand.”

Confirming the incident, Manoj Tiwari said, “It was quite funny. Initially, Katrina was very excited about it, so the three of us (Ravi Kishan, Manoj Bajpai and him) coached her to address the crowd with ‘Ka haal ba Patna’. She diligently wrote it down on a piece of paper and mugged it.

However, instead of saying ‘haal ba’, she kept on repeating ‘halba’, which sounded like ‘halwa’. Bajpai and Ravi Kishan burst out laughing at this and kept pulling her leg. That’s when we explained to her the difference between halwa, a sweet and ‘haal ba’, meaning how are you. Although Katrina took time to learn the line, she repeated it quite confidently on the dais. The crowd went berserk on hearing her. In fact we were all impressed with Katrina’s determination and persistence.”
