Will Anasuya Voice Spoil the feel of Satakarni?
Popular television anchor and film actress Anasuya has revealed that director Krish has personally asked her to dub for a character in his Gautamiputra Satakarni and she obliged. Has Krish taken a risk by roping in Anasuya?
Indo-Dutch model turned actress Farah Karimi (Aravind Swamy’s girlfriend in ‘Dhruva’) has played the key character of a Greek warrior queen in GPS. Visuals of Farah riding the horse in battle field and seducing Satakarni aka Balayya in another scene were shown in the trailer. Anasuya has dubbed for her character.
The role required a voice with foreign accent having vague Telugu dialect. It is not sure how Krish selected a fluent Telugu speaking Anasuya to do the job. Moreover, this beautiful lady’s raw voice echoes in the homes of people of Telugu states on a daily basis and many are familiar with it. Does her voice look convincing for a foreign lady?
Being a perfectionist and acclaimed filmmaker, Krish must have explained Anasuya how he wants her voice modulated before letting her dub. However, it indeed was a bold and surprising decision from Krish.
Farah will have 15 minutes of screen time, let’s hope Anasuya’s not-so convincing dubbing doesn’t spoil the proceedings.
