The actor is chosen for his rich baritone. Actor Sharad Kelkar will be giving his voice to Hollywood action superstar Vin Diesel for his dubbed Hindi version of the upcoming thriller xXx: Return of Xander Cage. The film marks the Hollywood debut of Deepika Padukone as Serena Unger. Sharad Kelkar has been associated with huge Hollywood films like Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014), Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) and X-Men: Apocalypse (2016).

Sharad had to put in some effort to match the texture of Vin Diesel’s voice. He told a leading daily, “I have dubbed for Vin for the first time. He has a gruff and slightly rough voice. Since my voice is clear and deep, I had to put in a lot of effort to emulate his voice. Also, he doesn’t move his lips much, so creating the correct tone wasn’t easy. I tapped into the mood of his character and enacted the scenes in the dubbing studio. This is what I call ‘method dubbing’.
