My crew is quite helpful, since they are always willing to help me with any word or phrase in the script. I can easily approach anyone and ask for assistance, which has simplified the procedure. After packing up, I watch a few YouTube videos on language improvement and read shudh Hindi stories and articles to improve my command of the language.
