Joey King added ‘cute little lisp’ to her voice for ‘Despicable Me 4’ character

Published

By

Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) Actress Joey King, who has done the voice-over for the character Poppy in the animated film ‘Despicable Me 4’, added a cute little lisp to her voice for the job.

The actress feels voice acting comes with the freedom to let loose and not worry about appearances for the camera.

“Recording voice-over for an animated movie is one of my favourite things because you have to give everything using just your voice. You end up making a bit of a fool of yourself to understand what the character is going through. You can’t be afraid to throw yourself around to make it resonate in your voice. The freedom to let loose and not worry about appearances is what I love the most, especially when I get to play such a fun, over-the-top yet endearing character like Poppy,” she said.

“I can really go for it, do some wild stuff and there’s no wrong way to do it. Poppy’s voice differs from mine because I added a cute little lisp to her voice, which is one of my favourite things about the character. I love when kids try to be all serious and make a point with that innocent, childlike voice, and in Poppy’s case, with her lisp. And although it wasn’t really my intention, somehow her lisp makes her come off even scarier,” she added.

Universal Pictures (distributed by Warner Bros. Discovery) is all set to release ‘Despicable Me 4’ in theatres on July 3 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

By

Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) Actress Apoorva Arora, who is known for her work in Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi, and Kannada films, on Thursday shared how yoga has benefited her.

On the eve of International Yoga Day (June 21), the actress told IANS that yoga has helped her relieve PCOD (Polycystic Ovarian Disease) related symptoms.

“Yoga has been crucial in my fitness journey. I’ve tried multiple forms of exercise but it turns out that yoga has been the most sustainable one for me. It has helped me relieve PCOD-related symptoms over the years and also helped heal old injuries, she told IANS.

PCOD is a medical condition of hormonal imbalance that disrupts the normal fertility cycle in women.

The actress said, “I’ve recently ventured into ‘chakras’ practice and while I’m still exploring this aspect, I feel there has definitely been a positive change. I recommend yoga to children and young adults who want to venture into performing arts or sports because it’s a great base to have before you start any kind of training.”

By

Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) Bollywood multi-hyphenate Farhan Akhtar on Thursday attended the trailer launch of his home production ‘Mirzapur 3’ along with the star cast of the much-anticipated series.

Speaking about the large fan following enjoyed by the crime thriller across the globe, Farhan said, “Wherever I go in the world, I face three questions. First, ‘What I’m doing there?’ Second, ‘When is ‘Mirzapur 3’ coming?’ And third, ‘When is ‘Don 3’ coming?’. I’m glad that I have answers to all three questions now,” sending the packed ballroom into splits.

The filmmaker-producer-actor, however, refrained from making any remark on ‘Don 3’, which has been facing the wrath of a section of the fans for replacing Shah Rukh Khan with Ranveer Singh for the titular role.

‘Mirzapur’, which belongs to the second generation of web content, is set to return with its third season that will drop on Amazon Prime on July 5.

The trailer of the upcoming season promises more blood, gore, drama, and politics.

By

Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) Actor Vikas Bhalla, who recently starred in the short film ‘Pravaah-The Flow’, has opened up on his shooting experience in Kasol in Himachal Pradesh, calling it beautiful and magical.

Talking about the the shoot, Vikas said, “Kasol, where we shot my scenes, is stunning and a must-visit for all travel enthusiasts. It was beautiful, magical… Weather-wise, it was cold in the middle of the night during our shoot. However, we had a super time shooting there.”

On relating with his character, the ‘Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin’ actor said: “I completely relate to it, and that’s one of the reasons I took up the role. Life is eventually not about your physical possessions, but the memories you make along the way. That’s what makes a life well lived. Being true to yourself and finding your calling is very very important if you want to lead a happy life.”

“Do not live your life to please others or according to what others expect from you, that is the biggest mistake we make. The earlier you find yourself the better will be your quality of life. After all, one life, so live it right,” he added.

She’s been a friend for a long time and I was pleasantly surprised with her directorial abilities. I wish her more success in all her future endeavours,” Vikas said.

Written, directed, and produced by Simmer Bhatia, ‘Pravaah-The Flow’ stars Maninee De and Sharad Malhotra in the lead.
