MUMBAI: Comedian Kapil Sharma will be the voice of the hot-headed bird ‘Red’ for the Hindi version of the upcoming animated feature The ‘Angry Birds Movie 2’.
The movie will hit theaters on August 23 and to attract the Indian audience, Sony Pictures Entertainment India has roped in Kapil to do voice-over for the one of the favorite characters of the movie. The comedian-actor enjoys a dedicated fan following in the India.
Speaking about how well he could relate to the animated character, Kapil said in a statement, “He [Red] is the hero but, at times, he gets entangled in tough situations. Knowing my history, you would agree I am Red”. The actor also feels Red is quite funny, just like him.
“The producers expected me to scale up the humour and I have, but it’s very situational. In fact, there are times when the character’s anger will make people laugh. Although I’ll be voicing the character, they won’t see me in it,” he added.
