Said a source, “Alia will be playing a Tamilian girl in the movie, based on Chetan Bagat’s novel 2 States: The Story of My Marriage. And the lady is not just trying to pick the accent but is also learning to play the South Indian girl with perfection. She is learning Bharatanatyam to get into the character.”
The story revolves around a Punjabi boy who falls in love with a Tamil girl, and the ensuing cultural clashes between them and their families.
The 19-year-old plays an Iyengar girl and will feature opposite Ishaqzaade fame Arjun Kapoor in the film. The film 2 States is directed by Abhishek Verman and co-produced by Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala.
