Unlike most films where male actors with a baritone lend their voice for some special scenes, Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor has given the voiceover for a crucial emotional scene in “Bodyguard”. If the grapevine is to be believed, her elder sister Karisma Kapoor and actress Katrina Kaif were also in the running to do the voiceover.
According to a source from the sets, Kareena, the leading lady of the Salman Khan-starrer had suggested that Karisma’s voice should be used for the sequence. Someone else from the production team suggested that Katrina, who has already shot an item number for the film with Salman, should give the voiceover for the scene. However, it was eventually decided that Kareena would do the voiceover herself.
On the other hand, producer Atul Agnihotri says Kareena’s voice was always the first choice for the scene.
“I don’t know from where is the news doing the rounds. Kareena will always be my first choice to lend her voice for this crucial scene. After all ‘Bodyguard’ is her film and she is our leading lady in the movie,” said Agnihotri.
“Bodyguard”, a remake of an eponymous Malayalam film, is a romantic action project. Releasing Aug 31, it is directed by Siddique.
