While we were still rejoicing in the news that Nargis Fakhri would be speaking in her own voice in Madras Cafe, all her dialogues would be subtitled in Hindi.
Apparently, the original idea was to just …you know…let her have her say in the language that she and her character of the war correspondent are comfortable in.
Taking their cue from Deepika's Tamil experience, the makers of Madras Cafe have decided to put Hindi subtitles to all of Nargis Fakhri's dialogues.
Confirming this director Shoojit Sircar says, "Nargis will speak in English. All her dialogues would be accompanied by Hindi subtitles."
