Deepika Padukone’s upcoming movie ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ has been making to the headlines since it was announced.

The movie, which will star Vin Diesel in the lead, will mark Deepika’s debut in Hollywood.

Indeed, this has created a buzz in the tinselvile, as Bollywood’s leading actress is now all set to take over the International cinema.

In fact, the fans are way too excited to see DP romancing Vin. On the other hand, Deepika’s pics from the sets of the movie, have been adding up to the excitement level of the audiences.

But little did anyone know that not just Deepika, an Indian Television actor is also a part of this Hollywood project, though not directly.

We are talking about Sharad Kelkar who is popular for his crime fiction show ‘Agent Raghav’.

Sharad has been roped to dub for Vin Diesel for the Hindi version of ‘xXx….’ as he has a fabulously rich baritone that works brilliantly on the big screen.

“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’”, Sharad told a leading daily.

This is not the first time Kelkar has lent his voice to another actor. Earlier, Sharad has also dubbed for Prabhas in the Hindi version of S S Rajamouli’s 2015 release ‘Bahubali’.

Directed by D.J. Caruso, ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ also stars Nina Dobrev, Ruby Rose, Samuel Jackson, Tony Jaa and Toni Collette. The movie will hit the theatres on January 20, 2017.
