Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure - IANS

Ali Fazal (left), who will be play­ing the an­tag­o­nist in his next film, will be learn­ing ways to mod­u­late his voice for the role. The ac­tor says that voice helps mould vi­su­als in a bet­ter way.

“It’s not just about body trans­for­ma­tions, voice plays a ma­jor part in shap­ing the vi­su­als. This par­tic­u­lar role is out of my com­fort zone, so it re­quires that much more at­ten­tion,” Ali said in a state­ment.

The Raja Chowdary’s di­rec­to­rial de­but is set in Ra­jasthan. It is be­lieved that Ali’s role will be very rus­tic and so the ac­tor is out on a mis­sion to get the suit­able pitch and tone. The ac­tor will be train­ing to work on his voice tex­ture.

“He will be go­ing for a spe­cialised train­ing to get the ac­cent and tonal­ity,” said a source, adding that Ali “has sourced some videos and voice pro­grammes from the web which he also used dur­ing his Hol­ly­wood ven­ture Fu­ri­ous 7 that fea­tured the likes of Vin Diesel and Dwayne John­son”.

Ali also said that mod­u­lat­ing voice is not a cake­walk. “Mod­u­lat­ing voice is not hard, keep­ing it con­sis­tent and truth­ful is... And that’s what we are work­ing on. It’s more for us than to daz­zle the au­di­ences with some unique un­heard voice,” he said.

The film is said to be a spaghetti Western en­ter­tainer made in In­dia. It is a genre of films pop­u­larised by Ital­ian film­mak­ers be­tween 1960 and 1980, and con­sists of ac­tion in­volv­ing trick­ery and lot of stylish stunts.
