It is known that Ajay Devgn has agreed to dub for the father who is heard narrating to his child the story of the fly whose heroic deeds we would see unfold on the screen for the next more than 2 hours.
If the father is Ajay, the mother is Kajol. Revealing this to the world, the ace director has happily tweeted, "Thanks a lot @ajaydevgn for the voice over. And cherry on top is Kajol did the VO for the mother. makkhi will have a gr8 start. Am i happy?"
With two major celebrities lending their voice, Makkhi does get credence. Set to release on Oct 12, the film marks another Hindi release for Sudeep after Raktha Charitra and Rann.
Wonder why the director did not think of going for a top hero to give the voice over in Telugu. In fact, dialogue writer Janardhana Maharshi had suggested the name of Ravi Teja for the character eventually played by Tagubothu Ramesh. Since that had the danger of giving an unthinkable feeling that the heroine, after the death of her lover, wants to go for another guy, Rajamouli chose a comedian so as to prevent the audience from having any such doubts about Samantha's shifting loyalty.
