Italian actress Madalina Bellariu Ion, who has shot for singer-songwriter Arko Pravo Mukherjee’s new single Aainda with Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh, says she is familiar with “common words” in Hindi.
Madalina also featured in Huma Qureshi and Saqib Saleem-starrer Dobaara: See Your Evil, which is an official adaptation of American horror film “Oculus”. Madalina essayed a pivotal role in the Hollywood film, helmed by Mike Flanagan.
“I understand the common words in Hindi but the best learning experience I had with it was while learning the lines from a film script. As you will see, in Aainda music video, I had to speak a few lines in Hindi. Also, in my previous Bollywood film ‘Dobaara…’ I was speaking in Hindi on a few occasions,” Madalina said.
“I am very particular. I don’t do anything superficially so when I learn Hindi lines I need to know what each word means, so that I put the right feeling into it.. Overall, the camera can read your heart,” she added.
The actress went on to praise Arko’s song which she says talks about “how the lover sees his love more important than anything else in his life, a feeling universal to all, an emotion common to all irrespective of where we are from”.
