Varun Dhawan gets a thumbs up from Chris Evans for the Hindi dubbing of his upcoming superhero movie 'Captain America: Civil War'
After Priyanka Chopra voiced Kaa from the iconic 'The Jungle Book', it's time for Varun Dhawan to don the mantle — literally. The actor has been roped in to voice the larger than life character of the American superhero from Marvel's cinematic universe — Captain America. In a statement released recently Varun had said, "Captain America is a matured and a balanced leader which is something that I am not. So, that made it all the more challenging for me. 'Captain America: Civil War' is bigger, better and the action is huge."
We caught up with Chris Evans, who is on his promotional tour in Singapore and asked him for his reaction to the Hindi dubbing of the film.

"Someone showed me the trailer yesterday and I quite liked it. What's the actor's name again?" he asks. We tell him and he instantly adds, " Ah yes! He's quite authoritative; he seems to have done a good job."
Considering that the compliment comes from Chris Evans, who's earned himself a place in the hearts of superhero movie buffs with fans enjoying his turn as Cap to the hilt across the globe, this is high praise indeed.
Varun, elated with the admiration coming his way, says that the process was creatively satisfying. "I think it's pretty cool that he got to see it (trailer) and liked it because eventually he is Captain America and I tried to maintain his tone, so if he's happy with the voice then I'm happy," he says.
He adds, "I can't wait for India to watch it. I wasn't sure of how it would turn out and worked on my voice with Mona Shetty. I really loved the character since I haven't played something like this here. So more than the praise I am getting, I'm happy because this is creatively satisfying and that is the biggest joy an actor or any creative person can get."
