The trailer of Arjun Patiala featuring Diljit Dosanjh, Varun Sharma and Kriti Sanon released last week and it was too funny for words. Throughout the trailer, there was a 1980s-style voice that narrated unusual tales from the making of a typical Bollywood cop drama. We couldn't figure out whose voice it was but now the cat is finally out of the bag. According to a Mumbai Mirror report, after several voice tests, producers Bhushan Kumar and Dinesh Vijan roped in comedian and actor Sunil Grover for the narrator's part. Now you know, it was Sunil who narrated the entire trailer of
Rohit Jugraj, who is helming this comedy film, confirmed the news and informed the leading daily, "We tried a couple of voices, but something was missing. We wanted someone who could imitate the vibe of the retro radio days. One day, Sunil was at the same studio as us, and upon hearing us out, got the tone we needed a spot on effortlessly."
Sunil revealed that everything fell in place by accident. The actor managed to pull off the narration without any brief from the makers. Say for that matter, Sunil didn't rehearse and did his bit. When asked if he would ever feature in a movie like Arjun Patiala, the actor added, "Right now, there is nothing on cards, but I would love to do such a film, depending on the script."
With Sunil Grover's presence in the film, Rohit Jugraj, the director mentioned how the Bharat star added more quirk to Arjun Patiala. "His presence just added more quirk to the comedy. Like everyone else, even I am his fan. He is making his place in Bollywood with good roles in different genres," added Rohit.
On a parting note, the filmmaker revealed how for the longest time people couldn't recognise the narrator's voice. And even, Diljit, Kriti and Varun failed to guess the narrator. Looks like, we were all sailing in the same boat.
Jokes apart, Arjun Patiala is releasing on July 26. The movie will be at loggerheads with Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut's Mental Hai Kya at the box office. To know more about these films and other updates, keep following BollywoodLife.
