Ajay does free voiceover for Yamla Pagla Deewana

By By: Upala Kbr, mid-day

Though Ajay Devgn is busy with Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, he agreed to doing a voiceover for Deol-starrer Yamla Pagla Deewana the minute director Samir Karnik asked him to. And he did it for free!

Devgn confirms, "I did it for Amit Sharma (one of the partners in his new venture, Dharamji, Sunny and Bobby. I'm very fond of them and would do anything for them."

Reveals Samir, "We required an actor with a good voice to do a narration at the beginning of the film when the credits are rolling. It is a 60-second narrative where the story is being set up and the past is weaved into the present.

YPD (Yamla Pagla Deewana) is the story of an NRI sardar (Sunny) in search of his father (Dharmendra) and brother (Bobby) and how he finds them and take them back to his country. It's a humorous script that had to be told in a deadpan fashion. I am a big fan of Ajay's deep voice. I thought he would be ideal to do it."

Karnik got Sharma, who is also co-producer of YPD, to ask if AJ would hear him out. "I met Ajay, gave him the lines and told him that the tone of the dialogue was sarcastic. He immediately agreed. Though he was dubbing for DTBHJ and had a very hectic schedule that day, he asked me to come to the dubbing theatre. In 10 minutes, he was through with the voiceover no rehearsals! He didn't charge a single paisa for it."
