Kangana Ranaut on playing Bobby in Judgementall Hai Kya: I was required to alter accent & try voice modulation

One of the highly anticipated trailers of Judgementall Hai Kya was released on YouTube yesterday. Starring Kangana Ranaut as Bobby and Rajkummar Rao as Keshav, the film is an erotic dark comedy that is centred around a murder. While the humour came out in some parts of the trailer, Kangana and Rajkummar’s whacky chemistry impressed everyone. In the film, Kangana will be seen as a voice-over artist and for her role, Kangana had to work a lot on her voice and pitch.

In a recent interview with Mid-Day, Kangana revealed she had to work a lot on her voice and pitch to perfectly portray her character on screen. The Manikarnika star mentioned that it was her director Prakash Kovelamudi who had made her work with diction artists so as to perfect her voice and accent for Bobby. Kangana also stated that Bobby has several layers to her personality and in the film, people will get to see each layer and complexity with clarity.

Kangana said, “This is the first time that I’m playing a VO artist. In the film, my character is dubbing for a Bhojpuri movie and a few other South Indian films. That sequence leads to a lot of humour. Initially, I was struggling with the part. Prakash then directed me to diction experts who guided me with exercises; I had to do tongue and throat exercises to achieve the right pitch and diction. I was required to alter my accent and practise voice modulation. In the film, we are playing with a lot of tongue-twisters. They provide situational comedy, and Kanika has written them with flair” The Tanu Weds Manu actor also stated that she never prepared only for Bobby’s profession, but also for her whole personality.

Judgementall Hai Kya was earlier named Mental Hai Kya which was changed post the CBFC screening. Rest, the film was passed without any cuts. In the film, we get to see other actors as well including Jimmy Shergill, Amyra Dastur, Satish Kaushik and Sudev Nair. The film’s trailer is trending on Number 1 on YouTube and has received a huge thumbs up from the audience. Directed by Prakash Kovelamudi, Judgementall Hai Kya is slated to release on July 26, 2019.
