Hrithik Roshan, who is working on his next with Kaabil, has reportedly mimicked Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan for the Sanjay Gupta-directed film. According to reports, the Krrish star plays a dubbing artist in the movie set to release early next year.
Hrithik plays Rohan Bhatnagar, a blind man who lives a normal life is a dubbing artist. “Hrithik and sound designer Resul decided to take up the challenge of making Hrithik do the voice impersonations himself. It’s worked wonderfully,” the newspaper quoted a source as saying.
The report also quoted 42-year-old Hrithik as saying, “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 source told, “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 voice-over.”
Sanjay Gupta’s Kaabil, releasing on January 26, is scheduled to clash with Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Raees.
