Punjab is famous for its diverse culture, songs, zestful lifestyle and of course the crop production. Though a small state, Punjab region is divided into three major portions, namely Doaba, Malwa and Majha.
The dialects of people speaking Punjabi in these regions are completely different. Lifestyles of the people who stay in these regions also vary completely.
And now, we have a Punjabi actor who tried very hard to get the accent perfect for his movie. That actor is none other than Gippy Grewal.
In ‘Chandigarh Amritsar Chandigarh’, the actor is playing the role of an Amritsari boy who has stayed in Amritsar throughout his life. So in order to get the accent perfect, Gippy Grewal put in a lot of effort to get the dialect correct.
Originally coming from a village in Ludhiana which is a part of Malwa belt, it was difficult for Gippy to instantly pick up the Amritsari accent which lies in Majha region of Punjab. Even, there was always a language supervisor on set to help Gippy.
Talking about how difficult it was for him to deliver dialogues in the best possible way, Gippy Grewal said, “I am basically from Ludhiana which is a part of Malwa region. And the tone of speaking is something that is very different from that of Majha belt. So in order to get the perfect speech tone, rhythm of the language and get the catch, I always tried talking to the locals there, to see the way they speak.”
Talking about his experience in the movies, Gippy said, “For the first time I had to learn my dialogues which I realized was a very difficult task. But all in all, it was a fun filled ride, learning to speak the Amritsari way. I hope I have done justice to the role and people like it.”
On the other hand, it was not at all a difficult task for Sargun who is the lead actor opposite Gippy Grewal. She will be seen playing the role of a Chandigarh girl and had no problem while dialogue delivery.
‘Chandigarh Amritsar Chandigarh’ is a movie which will show the journey of two people who are completely different from each other still enjoy each other’s company.
The film is directed by Karan R Guliani, and the film is a presentation of Sumit Dutt, Dreambook and A Leostride Entertainment Production. Munish Sahni’s Omjee Groups is distributing the film worldwide. The film is set to release on 24th May.
