Akshay helped me learn Marathi for 'Khiladi 786': Asin

Mumbai, Nov 14 (IANS) Actress Asin Thottumkal had to learn Marathi for her upcoming film "Khiladi 786" and says co-star Akshay Kumar was a great help.

"I had to learn Marathi but Akshay was a great help because he speaks Marathi very fluently and all my dialogues have a Hindi accent with a little Maharashtrian touch and this is the first time I am playing such a character, an out-and-out Maharashtrian girl called Indu Tendulkar," the 27-year-old said here while promoting the film at a mall.

"So, it was a lot of fun. I went all out for the character and hopefully it will have a good response," she added.

Asin's last two films "Housefull 2" and "Bol Bachchan" were superhits and she hopes "Khiladi 786" turns out to be even a bigger hit.

"Hopefully, keeping fingers crossed for a hat-trick. This year really has been very good for me with 'Housefull 2' and 'Bol Bachchan' doing really, really well. I hope 'Khiladi 786' follows and hopefully breaks the record of the last two ones and I am looking forward to that," Asin said.

Directed by Ashish R. Mohan, "Khiladi 786" hits theatres Dec 7.
