For the upcoming Hollywood film I, Frankenstein starring Aaron Eckhart (of Dark Knight fame), the Indian distributors are trying to rope in a popular TV actor to dub in Hindi
An online campaign is being planned where-in people can choose their preferred voice for Frankenstein’s monster. The poll starting January 10 will have TV actors like Gaurav Chopra, Karan Singh Grover, Gurmeet Choudhary and Vikrant Massey in contention for the role.
Says a spokesperson from PVR, “I, Frankenstein is a prestigious project for us and to bring in a local connect, we have decided to have a popular face dub for the lead character of the movie. Giving it an exciting layer would be that the audience can now choose who they think should dub for the said character. For the first time we are considering a TV actor, who could be the one to lend the voice for Aaron’s role.”
