Ron Howard’s Hollywood film, INFERNO, is gearing up for its release in India on October 14, two weeks ahead of its US release. Apart from English, the film is getting a big release in India dubbed in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. But here’s the exciting news! The very hot and rugged Baahubali star Rana Daggubati will be lending his voice for the Telugu version of Inferno, as the voice for Tom Hanks.
Rana, who has been busy shooting round the clock for Baahubali 2 in Hyderabad, saw a special cut of the film and immediately decided to come on board. He dubbed for Tom Hanks’s part over 3 days, every night post pack up at Ramoji Rao studios.
Speaking about his association with Inferno, Rana says, “I’ve enjoyed all of the Dan Brown’s books and have enjoyed the portrayal of Robert Langdon particularly on screen. Tom Hanks is a legendary actor and to be a part of his legacy in this way made for an exciting partnership of sorts. More so, this film Inferno is quite significant for us in India because it truly celebrates the power of the Indian market for global players, given that they are releasing it two weeks ahead of the US. for me personally, I will be able to look back and feel proud of having memorable characters like Bhallaldev and Robert Langdon to my credit in the same year (smiles)”
