Voice Work

Your blog is about to be recorded into an audiobook.  If you could choose anyone – from your grandma to Samuel L. Jackson – to narrate your posts, who would it be?


If I could choose anyone to narrate my blog posts it would be Amitabh Bachchan.  The bollywood superstar has a rich baritone voice which attracts his audiences and adds to his great charisma. Also known as Big B he has rendered his voice to many films, documentaries and is the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati the Hindi version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

The angry young man as he is also called has won 3 National awards, 14 filmfare awards and numerous awards at international film festivals.  Bachchan made his Hollywood debut in 2013 with The Great Gatsby, in which he played a non-Indian Jewish character, Meyer Wolfsheim.

He has been a narrator, a playback singer and presenter for numerous programmes. Renowned film director Satyajit Ray was so impressed with Bachchan’s voice that he decided to use Bachchan as the narrator in his 1977 film Shatranj Ke Khilari (The Chess Players).  Bachchan lent his voice as a narrator to the 2001 movie Lagaan which was a super hit.  In 2005, Bachchan lent his voice to the Oscar-winning French documentary March of the Penguins, directed by Luc Jacquet.
