Grammar insight:

In Marathi such form is created by suffixing “ऊया” (UyA) to the verb. e.g. Verb is “खेळ”. Its form is “खेळूया” ( kheLUyA )Verb is “बोल”. Its form is बोलूया ( bolUyA )

The second form used in questions was created by the suffixing form of “आयचा” (AyachA) to the verb. Depending on the gender and multiplicity of noun required form is suffixed. Forms are आयचा-आयची-आयचे-आयचे-आयच्या-आयची ( AyachA-AyachI-Ayache-Ayache-AyachyA-AyachI ).
e.g. Verb is “खा”. For पुल्लिंग-एकवचन नाम “आंबा” we will say “आंबा खायचा” For स्त्रीलिंग-एकवचन नाम “चिंच ” we will say “चिंच खायची”
