"It was very challenging (to play lawyer) and it's the first time I was playing a lawyer," Paoli said here Thursday in an interview.
She had to learn medical terms and jargon for the role.
"There were nuances in the character, there were lot of words, typical medical terms and of course the body language (that I had to learn), so it has been nice, but very challenging also," she added.
Written and produced by Vikram Bhatt, "Ankur Arora Murder Case" exposes and addresses the fatal flaws in the medical profession with an interesting cast which includes Kay Kay Menon, Tisca Chopra and Arjun Mathur.
"In personal life, a lawyer is also a human being. But when he or she is performing in the court, how is it? That I really needed to go through."
Directed by Suhail Tatari, "Ankur Arora Murder Case" is slated to release June 14.
