MUMBAI: Producer – director Prakash Jha has finished editing his forthcoming movie Aarakshan. Jha is all set to being dubbing for the movie now.
Aarakshan stars Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Manoj Bajpai and Deepika Padukone. The movie is slated to release on 12 August, 2011.
What’s more as far as the dubbing is concerned, replicating some of the rhetorical speeches that Bachchan makes in the film may not be as easy as it seems. In fact, Bachchan while would’ve preferred to retain the original dialogue-track, Jha insists that dubbing is a better option.
Speaking to Businessofcinema.com, Jha says, “Though it is generally believed that live in-sync sound is more realistic and therefore preferable to dubbing, I prefer dubbing. In the West they make their films in areas with restricted controlled sounds. I shoot my films on location, not in studios and hence there are too many external sounds. I am sure Mr Bachchan will not only replicate his rhetorical speeches in a dubbing studio, he’ll even make them sound better.”
Interestingly from among the cast members of Aarakshan, Deepika Padukone gets to dub first, even before Bachchan.
“Deepika has just returned from London after shooting a film. She called up to say she’s leaving again for another film. So we’re going to be dubbing with her first,” informs Jha.
The director is aiming at completing the dubbing of all artistes by the end of this month. Since the movie releases on 12 August, the director says, “We’ll have a clear three-day weekend as 15 August (Monday) is a holiday.”
