After being instrumental in the careers of some of the biggest stars, Sanjay Leela Bhansali now launches Meezaan, Jaaved Jaaferi’s son in Malaal. The young actor is already being called the most promising debutante on the block, ever since the trailer of the film created a splash on social media.
While Meezaan has a natural flair for acting, the young star worked hard on brushing up his Marathi skills since the film directed by Mangesh Hadawale, is based in the heartland of Mumbai city.
Sources reveal that apart from conversing in the language with his director and the assistant directors on the sets, Meezaan also conversed with his gym trainer only in Marathi. He also spent a considerable amount of time picking up the signature thick Maharashtrian accent and local gestures and body language from his office boys.
Prior to the film going on floors, Meezaan also lived with his aunt for a couple of days in town as she resided in a Maharashtrian dominated area and would interact often with the residents and understand their way of living.
If that wasn’t all, the actor would even visit train stations and shanties dressed in his character, where he conversed only in Marathi as part of his prep for the film.
Gulshan Kumar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali present Malaal. Directed by Mangesh Hadawle and introducing Sharmin Segal and Meezaan, the film is produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Bhushan Kumar, Mahaveer Jain and Krishan Kumar.
