Bollywood actress Kajal Aggarwal who is playing as a blind girl in Do Lafzon Ki Kahani has revealed how she prepared herself for the difficult role which is similar to Rani Mukherjee’s role in Black.
Kajal said that she did a lot of research, read Hellen Keller’s books, watched a lot of reference films, went for workshops to XRCVC; a special branch of St Xaviers college, which helped he out quite a bit in terms of understanding life, mannerisms, daily activities and chores of the visually challenged.
“Dr Sam and Calveena were extremely helpful and gave me tremendous insight. They taught me basic Braille, made me familiar with various equipments used by visually impaired people like special computers, audio machines, microwaves, watches, cellphones too,” says Kajal.
The actress said that she was also taught the assisted walk technique, which helped her for her character.
“Calveena made me practice walking with a stick with my eyes shut so that I get a genuine feel and body language of a blind person. That was a challenge as we have a natural tendency to instinctively use our eyes for various reactions. I had to control my eye movements and that was difficult as I’m a very hyper person. Throughout the film, I looked with both my eyes on either side! It was very draining emotionally as this is an extremely intense film with a plethora of emotional upheaval,” Kajal adds.
Presented by Jayantilal Gada under his banner Pen India Ltd. and produced by Dhiraj Shetty, Avinaash V. Rai and Dhaval Jayantilal Gada. Do Lafzon Ki Kahani is an upcoming romantic film, directed by Deepak Tijori and starring Randeep Hooda, Kajal Aggarwal in lead roles. The film is scheduled to release on 10th June 2016.
