Vishwas Patil’s upcoming film, Kangna Ranaut plays a courtesan. And to pick up pointers on her character and the backdrop on the sets, Patil and dialogue writer Atul Tiwari headed to Pakistan. The director and his team also visited places in North India to learn more about the kotha culture. Patil adds, “I want everything to look authentic. I have got a good team of composers — Sameer and Dev Kohli, who know Urdu very well.” Apparently, Kangna even shot for a dance sequence last week and the director thought she did fantastic. The team however refrained from shooting portions in Pakistan to avoid the security and permission issues.
