I would like to start with one of the most highest-paid Bollywood actresses, Katrina Kaif. Most of the people know that in her starting career, she faced difficulty in speaking Hindi. As she was born in Hong Kong, so her native language is English.

Therefore, directors had to dub her voice in her several movies.

In numerous movies her voice is dubbed by Mona ghosh shetty

Some of those are ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya?’ , ‘Humko Deewana Kar Gaye’, ‘Welcome’, ‘Sarkar’, ‘Partner and, ‘De Dana Dan’.


The Tollywood and Bollywood diva Sridevi belong to the south India.

In spite of very appreciable acting skill, Sridevi took help of dubbing artists because of her improper Hindi pronunciations.

To match up with this beauty’s wonderful performance, Baby Naaz had given her voice to Sridevi’s most of the characters.

However, After ‘Chandni’, Sridevi kept her own voice in her films.

Beside Baby Naaz, famous actress Rekha also dubbed Sridevi’s voice in the film ‘Akhree Raasta’.
