Coping with regional languages: Manjari tells how

Actress Manjari Fadnis, who has worked in Tamil, Telugu and Bengali films and is now ready to make her debut in Kannada cinema, says she prepares her dialogues for more than a week to deliver them fluently.

“I ask for my dialogue sheet a week in advance so that I can learn them (the dialogues) and also understand their meaning. As a result it becomes easier to emote,” said Manjari, who was seen in Hindi film “Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na”.

The actress will make her foray into the Kannada movies with “Munjanee”. She is cast opposite southern star Ganesh.

The movie is directed by S. Narayan, who zeroed in on her for the role after watching her Telugu film “Shubhapradham”.

“Munjanee”, a light-hearted family entertainer, will see Manjari as a young, bubbly, middle-class girl.

Talking about the project, she said: “All I knew was that I loved the script and that there were big names attached to the film and it was being produced by a very big banner.”

She has another Kannada film called “Dilkhush” in her kitty.
