Mira won't dub 'The Namesake' in Hindi
Discounting the possibility of dubbing her much-awaited film "The Namesake" into Hindi, Mira Nair says she is not considering it because it won't work.
"It's half in Bengali and half in American English. I don't want to flatten it all out into one language. In the case of 'Monsoon Wedding', which we dubbed into Hindi, the linguistic leap worked. It won't work in 'The Namesake'," Nair told IANS.
"The Namesake", starring Tabu and Irfan Khan, will be released in India March 23.
But Nair will dub the movie into South Indian languages like Tamil.
"We'll preserve the American-English. And the Bengali will be replaced by Tamil etc."
Does this make business sense to Nair?
"It should to somebody. I just make successful films. Money doesn't come back to me. But I don't mind ... as long as I've the money to do what I want to do. That's my definition of success."
