MUMBAI: Jagjit Singh has dubbed for an animation film Baru – The Wonder Kid.
Releasing in October, Baru – The Wonder Kid is the story of a 12 year old orphan boy, Baru and his courageous journey to free his sister, Anannya from the clutches of the Devil Prince – Zukayu. The movie is directed by Sachin Gote.
Singh has dubbed for the voice of Dadaji, the narrator of this story.
Singh says, “I really enjoyed it. This is the first time that I have done something beyond singing. In any case I do enjoy working for the kids. Dubbing dialogues was definitely fun and emoting the role of dadaji was great.”
Producer Prabhakar Shukla adds, “We had not even approached him. Once he heard about the film from the music director Vivek Prakash, he came forward and said that he wanted to do something. He had sung for my first film Gudiya and knew me. He saw the film, and asked to be the narrator, saying that I know how grand fathers speak. He did not charge a penny for the work. He did it as goodwill for kids.”
