During an interview with Deadline at the event, Kaif shared insights into her upcoming movie, “Merry Christmas.” The actress discussed her experience working with renowned Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi, describing it as “phenomenal” and “by far the most difficult film” she has undertaken.
“It was always a dream to work with him (Vijay Sethupathi), and I got the opportunity in ‘Merry Christmas’ to work with him. It was phenomenal, by far the most difficult film I have ever done,” said Kaif. She emphasized how the actor challenges her as an artist, making it a transformative experience.
Kaif revealed that “Merry Christmas” is a bilingual film, shot in both Hindi and Tamil. Speaking about the challenge of speaking Tamil for the Tamil version, she remarked, “In the Tamil version, I have actually spoken in Tamil, so it was two takes for whatever you were doing, and that was really challenging but exciting.”
Directed by Sriram Raghavan, the action thriller is scheduled for release on January 12, 2024, promising audiences a cinematic experience that pushes the boundaries of performance and language versatility.
