While Amitabh Bachchan has given his voice to many films & TV shows, it is now time that Shah Rukh Khan (who is currently juggling between the shoot of his movie FAN and his game show ‘India Poochega Sabse Shaana Kaun’ for &TV) does the same. SRK will be the voice for a historical show ‘Razia Sultan.’
The channel representatives wanted SRK to loan his voice as the sutradhaar for the show. ‘Razia Sultan’ will open with Shah Rukh Khan’s voice introducing the tale and take people back in time to his hometown – Delhi from present day to 13th century.
SRK took time to rehearse the lines as the dialect and diction had to match the era that he had to speak about. He completed the shoot of the game show that went on till mid-night and then continued with the recording of ‘Razia Sultan.’ Instead of being a neutral narrator, King Khan wanted to portray his voice in a manner that the audience can relate to.
Shah Rukh went on to give a few takes for the VO at 1 in the night only because he felt that he could do better after each take. While the channel representatives were happy with his first take itself, SRK insisted on doing it again as he felt he could give a lot more variation.
