New Delhi, Nov. 1 -- Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra takes her characters seriously and to give her on-screen persona authenticity, she ensures she gets her body language and other nuances right. After getting herself a boxing coach for her last release, she has got a Marathi coach now.

For her next film, a Sanjay Leela Bhansali venture, she's learning Marathi. A source says, "Priyanka is learning Marathi for the film as she will be playing a Marathi character. Sanjay sir wants to ensure that Priyanka gets proper diction, and therefore, there is a Marathi coach on the set all the time." Her spokesperson confirmed the development, saying, "Yes, Priyanka is learning Marathi under the guidance of a coach."

Her co-actors in the film, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, are also playing Marathi characters.

Meanwhile, an image of the Barfi! actor surfaced on the internet, and it was being speculated that it was her look from the film. However, Priyanka tweeted that it wasn't from the film, but from a visit she paid to a temple during the Navratra. "This image is from an ashram during Navratra," she tweeted.

And Sanjay Leela Bhansali's spokesperson also said that the sariclad image of Priyanka is not from the film. The team is going all out to keep the look of the cast under wraps. "Her look has been kept under wraps," says Bhansali's spokesperson.
