Dubbing of other language films in Kannada has not been an accepted practice for long. The reason for that being to promote the Kannada film industry. But all that changed when Ajith’s Vivegam released as Commando and was well received. The recent Raghava Lawrence starrer Kanchana 3 was also released in Kannada to a good response.
Following this, there seems to be a brewing demand for the Salman Khan starrer Bharat to be dubbed and released in Kannada. If this happens it would be quite a huge thing because no big Hindi actor’s film has been released in Kannada.
While we don’t know why there is so much buzz for Bharat to release in Kannada, but it cannot be discounted that with Kannada superstar Kiccha Sudeep playing the main villain in Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3, it would be natural for fans of Sudeep to want to see that film in Kannada as well when it releases. And this could just be a precursor to that.
Bharat which also stars Katrina Kaif is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. The film releases on June 5 for Eid.
While we wait and see how this dubbing scenario pans out, you stay tuned to Box Office India for the latest in cinema.
