Multilingual actress Taapsee Pannu will dub in three languages - Hindi, Tamil and Telugu - for Hollywood actress Katie Sackhoff's character in sci-fi action film Riddick. She is excited about the first-time opportunity. PVR Pictures is releasing the Hollywood film in India September 6 in three languages, apart from English.
The distributors were on the lookout for a voice that would go
well with Sackhoff's character, and the search eventually stopped
at Taapsee. Confirming the development, Taapsee said in a
statement: "Yes, I have been approached by PVR to dub for the India
release of Riddick in three languages. They have asked me
to dub for Katie Sackhoff, who plays the female lead alongside Vin
"This will be a first for me, hoping that I will be able to do it given the fact that I have a packed shoot schedule till end of this month," added the actress, who has featured in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam movies, and made her Bollywood debut with David Dhawan's Chashme Baddoor earlier this year.
Written and directed by David Twohy, Riddick is said to
be packed with breathtaking battle sequences. The last film of the
franchise released in 2004.
