Mumbai: Hrithik Roshan might still be reeling under the after-effects of his monstrous debacle ‘Mohenjo Daro,’ but the actor has nevertheless been working all guns blazing on his upcoming Sanjay Gupta directed ‘Kaabil’.
The actor reportedly plays a dubbing artist who also happens to be an excellent mimicry artist.
“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,” DNA quoted a source as saying.
The source adds, “Hrithik’s character Rohan Bhatnagar in Kaabil is a blind man who lives a normal life in the city much like many others there and earns by being a dubbing artiste. Apart from Mr Bachchan’s voice, Rohan is seen mimicking other celebrities as well.”
Mimicry, incidentally happens to be another talent of the multi-faceted actor. The actor, hence, reportedly insisted on doing the job himself and was adamant a professional mimicry artist wasn’t hired for the job. Hrithik and Resul worked hard on the impersonations and it reportedly has worked out convincingly.
On mimicking Amitabh Bachchan’s voice for the reel, Hrithik was quoted to have said, “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.”
‘Kaabil,’ produced by Rakesh Roshan, and also starring Yami Gautam, is scheduled to release on Janurary 26, 2017....
