Apart from engaging in extensive reading sessions with director Faruk Kabir, Aahana also received training from a professional. Talking about the process, Aahana says, “I had to learn particular sentences. I got signed on a week before the film went on floor. So I was immediately put on diction training and I was trained by Noman, who teaches Arabic at the University of Mumbai. He would come to my home, and I trained for almost three hours for the entire week. He also told me how the Arabs speak and I had to learn to speak Hindi in the Arabi accent”.

She adds that perfecting the diction was no mean feat, “It’s a very difficult language to learn because of certain sounds and how the words are pronounced. So, it took me a while to get a hang of it. I had voice notes from him and I would refer to them for every scene,” says Aahana.
