Sharad Kelkar dubs for Vin Diesel in ‘xXx’ Hindi version


Popular TV actor Sharad Kelkar will lend his voice to Vin Diesel for the Hindi version of Deepika Padukone’s Hollywood debut 'xXx: The Return of Xander Cage'. Not many know that apart from a good performer, Sharad is also a well known dubbing artist.

According to reports, the 39-year-old actor is putting in extra efforts to match the texture of Vin Diesel's voice.

"I have dubbed for Vin for the first time. He has a gruff and slightly rough voice. Since my voice is clear and deep, I had to put in a lot of effort to emulate his voice. Also, he doesn't move his lips much, so creating the correct tone wasn't easy. I tapped into the mood of his character and enacted the scenes in the dubbing studio. This is what I call 'method dubbing," explained Sharad.

In the past, Sharad has also lent his voice to the characters in the Hindi-dubbed versions of films like 'Guardians Of The Galaxy', 'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes' and 'X-Men: Apocalypse' and several others. He had also dubbed for National award winning film, SS Rajamouli's Baahubali last year.
