Chadha, who is in Goa to attend a retrospective of her films at the 40th edition of the International Film festival of India (IFFI), said that she could speak Punjabi, but had not mastered Hindi yet.
'That's a candid confession,' the British-Indian director said.
Chadha further said she was working on yet another film set in the Asian-dominated Southall in London.
'Shabana Azmi plays the lead role as a typical Punjabi mother in it,' she said adding that the film was named 'It's a Wonderful Afterlife'.
Gurinder's films like 'Bhaji On The Beach', 'Bend it like Beckham' and 'Bride and Prejudice' will be featured in a special retrospective segment to be screened at IFFI, which began Monday and goes on till Dec 3.
Chadha said she was looking forward to the IFFI Goa.
'Yeah, it's a lovely venue here in Goa, and it feels nice. But I am more interested in how Indian audiences view what I do and how I do it... so yes, it's something I always look forward to,' she said.
