Big B will apparently do the voiceovers for Dhanush as he plays a deaf and dumb character in 'Shamitabh'
Dhanush apparently plays a deaf and mute junior artiste in R Balki’s film, Shamitabh, which has the Ranjhanaa actor and Amitabh Bachchan in lead roles. It is now being said that Bachchan will lend his voice to Dhanush in the film.
Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush
If a source close to the film is to be believed, Dhanush and Amitabh recently shot for the film in Mumbai. “Dhanush plays a deaf and mute junior artist in the film and Amitabh Bachchan will do the voiceover for Dhanush’s character. Among the scenes that were recently shot was one where Dhanush, after a long struggle, gets his due. In this sequence, he has won an award and is shown walking the red carpet as well,” says the source.
The film, which went on the floors in February, has been shot in locations like Mumbai and Goa. It may be pointed out that Shamitabh will mark the Bollywood debut of Akshara Haasan, legendary actor Kamal Haasan’s daughter. The film is Dhanush’s second Hindi project, after the critically acclaimed and commercially successful Ranjhanaa. It remains to be seen whether the actor will be able to impress audiences once again with his role in Shamitabh. Buzz also has it that he will be doing a cameo in the sequel to the Hindi film, Tanu Weds Manu.
