If you wondered about Priya Anand’s flawless american accent in Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish, here is the answer. Priya Anand moved to US during her teens and finished her schooling there. Then, she went on to complete Communications and Journalism in University of Albany as a mission to work with director Shankar.
“My one-point agenda at that time was to work as a director with the acclaimed Shankar. I’d watched all his films in the U.S., where my only connection to India was films. I loved the way Shankar weaved messages into his ‘super mass’ films,” reveals Priya Anand in an interview to a daily. Priya is currently awaiting the release of R. Kannan’s Oor Oorla Rendu Raja and Aishwarya Dhanush’s Vai Raja Vai.
