Kapil Sharma is an Angry Bird now
By Bandook - July 25, 2019
The Angry Birds franchise has been a hit with Indian audiences in all avatars, most notably with a great run at the Indian box-office with the first installment.
The sequel, releasing August 23 in India, will have Kapil Sharma voicing the hot-headed Red for the film’s Hindi version.
Ever the improvisational expert, the comedian-singer even worked on making the dialogues more relatable to his audiences.
Pointing out that dubbing for a film is different than voicing for a character, he says, “In the West, artists first voice for their characters and based on that, the film is shot using graphics. But over here, we have to talk according to the graphics.”
More over, the actor could relate to the character and he says, “He is the hero but, at times, he gets entangled in tough situations. Knowing my history, you’d agree I am Red.”
Kapil promises that his audience will not be disappointed as Red is quite funny, just like him. “The producers (Sony Pictures Entertainment India) expected me to scale up the humour and I have but it’s very situational. In fact, there are times when the character’s anger will make people laugh,” he reveals, adding that he is certain that people will connect to Red.
“Though I’ll be voicing the character, they won’t see me in it,” he assures.>
