Kajol lends her voice to Ma in the Hindi version of Eega!

And we all know it’s Ajay Devgn dubbing for the onscreen Papa in Makkhi. Now with his wifey on board, isn’t that a perfect jodi?

Director SS Rajmouli of the Tamil movie Eega was elated when Ajay Devgn agreed to dub for the father’s voice – in a short cameo at the beginning of the movie – for the Hindi version called Makkhi, of this blockbuster movie.

And the cherry on top – Kajol has nodded in affirmation to dub for Ma’s voice, again, in that short cameo alongside her hubby. Awww! Fab, isn’t it? And while one would think that it was a perfect decision to cast the real-life Mom and Dad in the movie rules, the two actors’ association with Rajmouli and producer Suresh Babu, whose father Dr D Ramanaidu cast Kajol in Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain, was what coaxed the actors to lend their voices to the movie. Well, that age-old connection, of course, apart from the fact that the couple really liked the original Tamil movie, Eega.

So what do we have here? A perfect script, with two just-right voices opening the movie. Now will that translate into a bumper box office collection when Makkhi releases on October 12? Time to wait and watch, folks!
