Kamal Haasan did it in Avvai Shamughi and now Sivakarthikeyan will be seen sporting drag in director Bhagyaraj Kannan’s Remo! According to sources, a major portion of the film has the rising star disguised as a woman. In a surprising move, the director and actor have decided that the actor’s female avatar will speak in his own voice!
Says the film’s eminent sound designer, Resul Pookutty, “We had thought of getting a female voice for Sivakarthikeyan’s lady character. But he has now decided to take on the challenge himself. We’ll be experimenting with various voices and pick the one that suits Sivakarthikeyan the most.”
Interestingly when Kamal Haasan played a woman in Avvai…, he too had insisted on speaking in his own voice rather than getting a woman to dub. Remo will also be dubbed into Telugu. We sure are excited
