MUMBAI—Filmmaker actress Divya Khosla Kumar took Kathak lessons for her upcoming short film "Bulbul." She says that it is a widely followed art form and it is important to do it the right way.

Kumar will be seen playing several characters like a turbaned Sikh; she not only adorned the look but observed a few friends and relatives to get into the skin of that character. Similarly, she is playing a Kathak dancer in the film.

"Its a widely followed art form and to stay true to your art form, it's important to do it the correct way. The girls who taught me were so supportive and patient to let me learn every form well," she said in a statement.

"Bulbul" is extensively shot in Shimla and will be releasing on Dec. 8.

Directed by Ashish Pande, the film also features Shiv Pandit and Elli Avram.
