Talking about the same, Farhan Akhtar shared, “I would like to say it was easier for me to play this character compared to the Milkha character because my father is from Lucknow. In the house when we converse it’s mostly in Urdu so the dialect is somewhat different in Moradabad but the basic language is the same. So I was very comfortable to speak the way Kishen Mohan Girhotra. Milkha was challenging for me because he hails from Punjab. So I had to follow the Punjabi dialect and I’m not even remotely related to Punjabi, so that was way more challenging. That is because in the house we normally talk in Hindi, Urdu so that made it easier for me to get into the skin of this character.”
