Rajkummar Rao, Arjun Kapoor and Disha Patani, among others, will lend voices for The Boys Hindi dubbed version on Amazon Prime Video.
Kapoor and Rao will voice Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and Homelander (Antony Starr) respectively, while Starlight (Erin Moriarty) will be dubbed by Patani. The anti-superhero show gained popularity in India this year when its second season came out.
The Boys is based on the comic book series of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. It presents a fictional reality where superheroes are artificially made to wreak havoc on the world while pretending to be its saviours.
Rao took to Twitter to share his joy on lending his voice for the show. He gave fans a peek into what the dubbed version will sound like.
Talking about the opportunity to become Homelander’s voice in the dubbed version, Rao said: “Voicing for Homelander has been extremely exciting and I hope that the audiences like what I have done with my voice for Homelander. It’s been a great experience doing this.”
All the actors roped in for their respective roles, have expressed immense admiration for The Boys. Kapoor said: “I have been a huge fan of the series ever since it released. Billy’s wild sarcasm and his alluring ruggedness spoke to me and I can’t be more excited to voice this delightfully-vexed vigilante.”
Patani, who will voice Starlight, said: “When Amazon Prime Video approached me to lend my voice for the character, there really was no doubt in my mind! Dubbing for the character has been such a fun experience.”
So far, only three character voices from The Boys Hindi dub have been revealed. It will be interesting to see who will voice the other ‘Boys’, Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid), Frenchie (Tomer Kapon) and Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso).
Along with Hindi, the series will be dubbed in Tamil and Telugu. The dubbed versions are set to launch on Amazon Prime Video on October 28th.
