Duggu Bana Big B for Kaabil!
We all know that Hrithik’s character in the film is that of a blind man who lives a normal life just like any other, but did you know that he earns a living by being a dubbing artiste? He has always been known to take up challenging films and role, be it a handicap in Guzaarish or a villain in Dhoom 2, Hrithik has always given applauds worthy performances due to his ability to get into the skin of the character.
Whilst shooting for Kaabil, Hrithik was required to speak in many voices, due to his character, included Amitabh Bachchan’s famous baritone. And the uber talented actor, of course, nailed it!
A source close to the actor revealed “When Hrithik did a voice imitation of Big B, he was so uncannily close to the original that everyone on the sets assumed that sound designer Resul Pookutty had somehow engineered the voiceover.”
Infact, mimicry happens to be one of Hrithik’s hidden talents and hence when he was told what his profession in the film was, he insisted that his voice should not be dubbed by a mimicry artiste and he will do it himself!
Says the source, “Hrithik and the sound designer Resul, decided to take up the challenge of making HR do the voice impersonations himself. It’s worked wonderfully”.
Word has it that, his voiceover of Big B was so similar that the cast and crew on the sets of the film felt like Mr Bachchan was speaking himself! “I guess this is just a reflection of the kind of impact Mr Bachchan has had on my generation, and of course, the fact that hard work equals results.”
The dynamic father-son duos, Rakesh & Hrithik Roshan are back with Rakesh Roshan’s Kaabil, starring Hrithik Roshan & Yami Gautam in the lead roles, directed by Sanjay Gupta, releasing on January 26th, 2017.
