Youth sensation Shantanu Maheshwari aka Abir Basu from ALTBalaji’s Medically Yourrs is back after a 2-year long hiatus and is experiencing a time of his life. Fans are showering him with a lot of love on his newly launched web-series. While the series looks so interesting and quirky, Shantanu spills the beans on how he prepared for his character Abir.

Being a Kolkata Boy, Shantanu shares that he cannot speak Bengali fluently. Playing the character of Abir Basu, not only gave him a chance to speak Bengali on screen but also exposed him to a lot of Bengali cuss words. While Bengali is considered to be one of the sweetest languages in India, it also has its version of slang. It was quite an amusement as Shantanu truly enjoyed widening his Bengali dictionary with these new words. It will be a treat to watch him in the web-series indeed!

On learning Bengali slangs, Shantanu Maheshwari quipped, “I usually don’t speak in Bengali, but this time I got a chance to learn Bengali language through this show. It was good to brush up my Bengali and my director really helped me a lot in doing that. It was fun to actually even learn some slangs and cuss words which I will flaunt from now on.”
