Actor Rana Daggubati is more than happy to get associated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe after lending his voice to the character of Thanos in the Telugu version of Avengers: Infinity War. The upcoming mega Hollywood film, which features an ensemble of superheroes, will release on April 27. Disney India, in a move to expand its localisation efforts, has signed on Rana to dub for the villainous character.

“I’ve grown up reading Marvel Comics and Marvel movies with their intricately woven storylines. It is fascinating to see how Marvel has created characters and stories that resonate so well with audiences across the globe, making movies at a scale that one had never before imagined,” Rana said in a statement.

“Characters such as Iron Man and Captain America have been my favourites. So dubbing for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ was thrilling. Voicing for Thanos, a villain so powerful that some of the biggest superheroes have a tough time dealing with, was an exciting experience,” added the actor, who has finished dubbing for the movie.

“This year marks a milestone for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it turns 10 and to add to the excitement, we are releasing ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ – the biggest superhero crossover one has ever seen,” said Bikram Duggal, Executive Director and Head, Studio Entertainment, Disney India.

It was followed by roping in actor Varun Dhawan for Captain America in the movie “Captain America Civil War”.
