Arjun Das Pens A Heartfelt Note On Dubbing For Kalki 2898 AD.

Kalki 2898 AD starring Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan and Kamal Haasan has emerged as the Biggest Blockbuster of 2024. Directed by Nag Ashwin, the film is receiving much appreciation across the nation. The film is a blend of Sci-fi and Hindu Puranas.

Arjun Das Dubbed For Lord Krishna In Kalki 2898 AD

Arjun Das has dubbed for Lord Krishna in the movie and has penned a long heartfelt note about his experience with this project. Taking to his X platform, the actor said “I received a call from Swapna a few weeks ago, and she said “We would like you to dub for Lord Krishna in Kalki”. At first I was a little hesitant but then she went on to say two things – “You will be talking to Amitabh Bachchan” and “Just trust us”. Being a fan since I was little and having tried to mimic his voice in both school and college, I wasn’t sure if I would have it in me to dub.

I remember flying into Hyderabad and the moment I reached the studio, I requested the engineer to play Amitabh Sir’s dub. From the moment I heard. Bachchan Sir’s voice, it took a while for it to sink in. All I could hear was his iconic dialogues playing in my head. All those days in school saying his dialogues to an audience. And here I am actually listening to his voice and I have to share dialogues with him. Pheww! I took a few minutes to gather myself & started dubbing.

Over the next three days, Nag Ashwin was kind enough, despite his extremely busy schedule to sit with me and guide me through this process. Unfortunately I could only dub in Telugu & Hindi due to lack of time. Thank you so much for being so patient & kind Nag. Thank you Swapna, I hope I have managed to at least come a little close to what you had envisioned. Thank you to each & everyone of you for taking time out to message me regarding the voiceover. 

As mentioned earlier, the credit should only & only go to Nag & Swapna. Thank you Vyjayanthi movies, Swapna, Nag Ashwin, Prabhas Garu, Amitabh Bachchan Sir, Deepika ma’am, Kamal Sir & to everyone involved in the movie for allowing me to be a small part of your magnum opus. It was an absolute honour & privilege to be a small part of your film. Watch Kalki at a theatre near you!

P.S (as a little kid, I would have never dreamt of saying dialogues to Bachchan Sir. Thank you team Kalki. That kid has a smile on his face for a lifetime.)

Bachchan Sir, if anybody ever tells me “mere paas buildinge hai, property hai, bank balance hai bungle hai, gaadi hai, kya hai tumhare paas?” I will proudly say “mere paas Bachchan sir ke saath ek dialogue hai.”
