‘Paan Singh Tomar’ actor Irrfan Khan is heard in the Jungle Book’s Hindi trailer where he dubbed for the voice of cuddly bear, Baloo.
Irrfan was ecstatic to have dubbed for the voice of the character in India for one of the most adorable characters of Jungle Book, Baloo. Known for his quirky sense of humour, everyone is loving Irrfan’s work and his rendition of what Baloo would sound like.
But the question is who exactly made Irrfan be convinced to take up the project.
In reality, Irrfan himself is a fan of the epic tale since childhood but it was his younger son Ayan who’s insistence made Irrfan say yes to dub for the movie. When Irrfan was offered the part, he happened to discuss it with his kids and Ayan was most excited at the thought of having his father be a part of a film which is literally a favourite for everyone, regardless their age.
