Jayanti Lal Gada's animated film; 'Mahabharat' has big names from Bollywood lending their voices to the characters. After Amitabh Bachcha, Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Manoj Bajpai and Vidya Balan, latest to join the mythological bandwagon is Anupam Kher.
The ace actor has lent his voice to the character of Shakuni mama for the movie 'Mahabharat'.
Shakuni who is believed to be an extremely intelligent but devious man is characterized for rubbing dice in his hands often. Shakuni is perhaps best known for masterminding the infamous Game of Dice and hence Anupam Kher kept roaming with dice for a month before he started dubbing to get used to it. A master of sorcery, it is said the dice used by Shakuni's were made from his father's thigh bones and hence generated any desired number and so even while he was dubbing Kher kept using the dice.
Revealed a spokesperson, "Anupam requested the makers of the movie to use the original sound of the dice generated during the dubbing of his character and not to create a sound mix of the same."
Gada's 'Mahabharat' is an attempt to allow children to be up to date with their holy scriptures and at the same time make the movie an enjoyable and pleasant experience.
