Mani Ratnam film is special. Every film enthusiast is looking
forward to his new film Guru, which will be released next
Friday in three versions simultaneously -- Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
While ample space has been devoted in newspapers/tabloids/websites
to its Hindi version, the press hasn't talked much about the Tamil
version of the film.
Well, here's some exclusive news then...
Leading Tamil actor Surya has dubbed for Abhishek Bachchan in
the Tamil version of Guru, while veteran actor Nasser has
dubbed for Mithun Chakraborty. Madhavan, who has featured in a
number of Mani Ratnam movies including Guru, has dubbed
his lines himself, while a top actress has dubbed for Aishwarya
Rai. "Ash has a performance-oriented role, hence we decided to have
an actress dub her portions, instead of hiring the services of a
dubbing artist," Guru producer G. Srinivasan informs me.
Meanwhile, the title Guru will be retained for the
Tamil version, but in Telugu it's Gurukanth. Also, the
Tamil and Telugu versions will be released with 75-100 prints in
