Just a few days ago, Fox Star India dropped the Hindi trailer for Deadpool 2 featuring Ranveer Singh’s voice as Deadpool. The trailer received a highly mixed response with over 20k dislikes on the video. A lot of people thought original dub artist was better than him.
And today, it’s Bhuvan Bam aka BB Ki Vines who has just announced that he’s lending his voice to Dopinder the taxi driver in Deadpool 2.
Bhuvan Bam broke this news on his social media handles.
Looks like Fox Star India is shifting sails at the very last moment. It seems like they are ditching original dub artists and going with famous Indian personalities to appeal to the mainstream Indian audience. Tbh, it’s not surprising given the extraordinary success of Avengers: Infinity War. The movie has earned over 200 crore at the Indian box office in just two weeks. It only makes sense that Fox Star India wants to ride the superhero hype.
Really hope this last minute decision doesn’t backfire for Fox Star India. Having said that, we’re all psyched to hear Bhuvan’s voice on the big screen!
