Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sanjay Gupta together are doing all they can to make the former beauty queen's comeback film "Jazbaa" a success, and this explains why the actress is all set to learn Arabic.
A few days ago it was announced that the action-thriller would be released in UAE and so Aishwarya has reportedly taken it upon herself to dub in Arabic for her voice in the film.
According to a Deccan Chronicle report, she wasn't okay with someone else giving the voiceover as it would destroy her performance.
However, this development is in stark contrast to what Sanjay had said earlier on. Talking to DNA about the UAE release, the filmmaker mentioned a popular company is scouting for the best dubbing artists and the work will begin as and when they find a suitable one.
"The end credit song (the title track), composed by Sachin-Jigar, will be shot with a top Arabic singer there after which we will release it also as a promotional video in Arabia. We are still to shoot the Hindi track. For the dubbing bit, Zee has shortlisted some companies and will be selecting from the best vocal talent they have. Jazbaa is a bilingual, but not the typical kind!," he told the leading daily.
To be released in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Yemen, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait and across other Arab countries, "Jazbaa" has already gained sufficient traction with its trailer, which has garnered close 5 million views on YouTube in less than a week.
Slated for a 9 October release, the film also stars Irrfan Khan and Shabana Azmi in key roles.
