And my association with this movie is that I am the voice of Kajal Aggarwal, the leading lady. This is perhaps the first movie that I dubbed in AVM Sound and Light so by the time a certain camaraderie was established with the technicians it was time to thank-you-very-much-it-was-good-working-with-you. I thought Kajal is perhaps the definition of bubbly and I loved watching the scenes that I was privy to at that time. That said, let me also tell you that it is not necessary that I get to see the entire movie and then start work. That happened with Sillunu Oru Kadhal as it was the first time I was dubbing and Dir. Krishna wanted to me to watch the movie and then start dubbing. A lot of times, we are asked to give a voice test and once the director thinks it is what he wants, then work starts straight away or on a different date. I have heard that people like Savita and Hemamalini, two of the leading dubbing artistes finish an entire movie, sometimes for both heroines in a movie like in 12B (Savita was the voice of Jo and Simran), in just one day.
Most times I get fatigued after prolonged talking so whatever is remaining gets distributed over subsequent days. Sometimes, as a lot of artistes' time needs to be adjusted such sessions might be spread over a week or so.
But one of the best things is before most of the world did, I got to hear the songs of this movie. And let me tell ya the music is super cool. It has the Colonial Cousins' distinct style, and you would know what I am talking about if you were one of those who followed their music like a mad thing, like I did, and love this song Sunita Sarathy has rendered in particular. One of the female singers that I admire. The audio releases this evening.
I know that I am going to be playing this sound track a lot on my show. Have fun listening in.
