Besides undergoing physical transformation, Hrithik also wants to get the lingo right, hence he has started taking lessons from a Bihari coach.
As per a report in Bollywood Hungama, Hrithik has appointed a coach from Bihar so that he can speak the language with accurate accent. A source informed that the actor is taking tuition for at least two hours to get Bihari accent. ''Hrithik spends a minimum of two hours with his language coach from Bihar, and now speaks in exactly the same tone as Anand Kumar. In fact Hrithik telephones Anand Kumar to try out his Bihari accent on him,'' informed the source.
Not just this, Hrithik is also losing weight and muscles to look convincing on screen. After meeting Anand Kumar, Hrithik decided to say good bye to his toned physique. Source said, ''During one of their meetings, Hrithik asked Anand whether he goes to the gym. When Anand replied in the negative Hrithik declared he cannot have a gym-toned body to play Anand Kumar. Hrithik has been shedding all his muscles to look more convincing as a humble mathematician from Bihar.''
