Vivek to enrol in voice modulation course
Actor Vivek Oberoi (above) is going the Johnny Depp way. Inspired by the Hollywood actor’s prep for his criticallyacclaimed film, Black Mass (2015), Oberoi is working hard to not just look but also sound like a different person in his upcoming film, a gangster drama.
To play the titular role of Muthappa Rai, the actor will undergo a supervised physical transformation, and also train in voice modulation to sound every bit the gangster-turnedbusinessman. He will enrol in a voice modelling and modulation course.
This is the third time after Shootout at Lokhandwala (2007) and Rakht Charitra (2010) that Oberoi will play a gangster on screen.
“Dialogues and voice tone can make a huge difference in the characters we play. I will try to differentiate myself in this film from the characters I have played so far,” he says.
A source close to the project tells us, “This is a genre that audiences love seeing Vivek in, and he’s going all out to get under the skin of his character. From adopting a challenging fitness regime and disciplined diet, he is also training in voice modulation and accent since Rai is known for his infamous intimidating southIndian accent.”
