Actor Imran Khan, who had a greatexperience dubbing for an upcoming Hollywood film Rio 2, says he has always admired animation films.

Rio 2, the sequel to 2011's hit animation film, Rio will see two Bollywood actors voice the main characters for the dubbed Hindi version.

Imran had watched Rio and he found it fantastic when it released couple of years ago.
 
"The macaw Blu is a complete delight on-screen and when I was approached to voice Blu in Rio 2 I readily agreed to be a part of the film. Though I have always admired animations from a viewer's point of view, this time with 'Rio 2' I learnt about many fascinating elements that combine to make the final stellar film.
 
"There are so many nuances that synergize beautifully and its a completely different world when we compare to other movies. I had fun while dubbing as I had complete freedom of giving various reactions, expressions through my voice, which is different from Bollywood, where we re-enact our dialogues shot previously," Imran said.
