Akshay Kumar, who was supposed to dub for the Hindi version of a Hollywood film based on Greek Mythology, has backed out of the project for unknown reasons. Now, Sonu Sood has been roped in to do it. Is Akki’s loss Sonu’s gain?
Sonu Sood confirmed the news and said, “Yes, I will be dubbing for a Hollywood film for the first time! When you talk about Hercules, your voice needs to match the physique of the actor you see onscreen (Kellan Lutz). I guess they chose me because I too sport a six pack quite like Kellan Lutz! Apart from undergoing the regular voice exercises, I’ll try to give it my best shot.”
“I remember, as a student, I found the dubbed versions funny. That shouldn’t be the case,” he added; talking about how he found most dubbed Hollywood movies funny.
When asked what he felt when he came to know that Akshay Kumar was initially offered the project, he said “I heard about it. I have done two films with Akshay. Whether he dubs or I do, as long as Punjabi boys do it, its fine.”
