Tamil actor Bharat is debuting in Bollywood with "Jackpot" and says Dhanush gave him Hindi lessons.


Tamil star Dhanush entered the Hindi film industry with "Raanjhanaa", which was well-received at the box office.

Bharat told IANS: "Yes, I did speak to Dhanush. We both started our career together in 2002. He is a fabulous actor and with 'Raanjhanaa', he has proved himself again. He has given me some tips on Hindi diction - he has asked me to read my lines carefully before going for takes."

Bharat started his acting career with Tamil film boys "Boys" and later impressed with his performances in films like "Chellamae", "Kaadhal", and "Pattiyal".

Bharat, who is debuting with Indo-Canadian adult star Sunny Leone in "Jackpot", says it was a wonderful experience to share the screen space with her.

He said: "It's a huge break for me in Bollywood and I was all the more exited to share the screen space with Sunny Leone. She is a wonderful human being."

Directed by Kaizad Gustad, "Jackpot" also features Sachin Joshi and Naseeruddin Shah, among others.
