Deepika took 4, while Katrina took 40
Deepika Padukone has made a new record, not that of changing boyfriends but something that no other Bollywood actress has achieved till date. Deepika recently finished dubbing for Prakash Jha’s multi-starrer ‘Aarakshan’ in days which can be counted on the tip of your fingers.
Praising Deepika’s work the director posted on a social networking site, ‘She finished dubbing in record time! Only 4 days.’
A bitter experience with Katrina Kaif could be the reason for Jha’s such a happy outburst in public. Katrina played the character of a strong woman politician in ‘Raajneeti’ and her role demanded a long speech in Hindi. Katrina, who cannot utter a single line in Hindi without a hitch, making her say the complete speech in Hindi proved a labouring task for the director. Prakash Jha was insistent on maintaining the originality of the film which was possible only if the dialogues were dubbed in Kat’s own accented voice.
According to sources Katrina took complete 40 days to finish the dubbing for ‘Raajneeti’, a total tiring job for Jha. And this could be the same reason why Jha is unable to contain his happiness with Deepika’s quick dubbing performance of 4 days.
All this praise doesn’t seem to have gone off well for Katrina. Recently she stated that the scene where she was supposed to give a speech in Hindi in ‘Raajneeti’ was the most difficult scene she has done till date.
After being in the industry for almost 6 years, if Katrina still needs 40 days for dubbing then it is nothing she should be proud about. Who knows, her lack of language might take away the only opportunity where she can prove herself a good actress. Probably some lessons in Hindi would be good for starters to give her contemporaries some competition
