Talking about the experience, Sharad says, “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’.”
