New Delhi, Aug. 10 (ANI): Not many would know that popular television actor Sharad Kelkar is also an established dubbing artist and his upcoming project involves lending voice for the dubbed version of Hollywood action superstar Vin Diesel's upcoming thriller 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage.'

According to a BollywoodLife report, the 39-year-old actor, known for a rich baritone, was recently seen putting in extra efforts to match the texture of Vin Diesel's voice.

"I have dubbed for Vin for the first time. He has a gruff and slightly rough voice. Since my voice is clear and deep, I had to put in a lot of effort to emulate his voice. Also, he doesn't move his lips much, so creating the correct tone wasn't easy. I tapped into the mood of his character and enacted the scenes in the dubbing studio. This is what I call 'method dubbing," explained Sharad.

On a related note, Sharad has also lent his voice to characters in the Hindi-dubbed versions of films like 'Guardians Of The Galaxy', 'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes' and 'X-Men: Apocalypse' and several others. He had also dubbed for National award winning film, SS Rajamouli's Baahubali last year.

'XXX: Return of Xander Cage' will also mark the Hollywood debut of sizzling Deepika Padukone, who will be seen romancing Vin on-screen. (ANI)
