Chennai, Nov 20: Is language not a criterion for actresses to gain entry into films? If yes, then why do most top heroines in the southern film industry rely on voice actors?
IANS finds out answers to these questions from some members of the film fraternity.
Telugu actor-filmmaker Ravi Babu, known for films such as "Nuvvila" and "Avunu", has worked with actresses such as Yami Gautham, Bhumika Chawla and Shamna Kasim aka Poorna over the years and says fingers can't be pointed at the actresses because they're hardly given time to even make the effort to learn the language.
"It's unfortunate but we can't blame the actresses. Most of the time producers who take these actresses on board don't give them ample time to learn the language and thus resort to hiring voice actors to dub for them. But some actresses like Tamanna at least take the effort to learn the language," Ravi told IANS.
