Aishwarya Rai to Give Her Voice in Punjabi Version of the Movie Provoked

Aishwar Rai is going to voice in Punjabi language for the first time with her recently released English language movie Provoked which was released in England on 6th of April, 2007. The movie is going to be dubbed in 6/7 languages. AIshwarya Rai will just give her voice in Hindi and Punjabi languages.

In the movie, AIshwarya Rai plays the protagonist role of the movie. Provoked is based on the true story of a Punjabi housewife, Kiranjit Ahluwalia, who lived with her two children and abusive husband, Deepak Ahluwalia in England. Having tolerating abusive treatment from her husband, she killed her husband one night.

It has been reported that Aishwarya is very much excited with her voice in Punjabi language. The Hindustan Times reported:

Producer J. Murli Manohar, who flew down from London this week to oversee the release on Feb 23, told IANS: "We aren't just releasing the film in its original English language, we're also dubbing the film in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi and Spanish, and possibly a seventh language, French."

Aishwarya will dub for the Hindi and Punjabi versions. "To expect Ash to dub in Tamil or Spanish is unrealistic. But she's very enthusiastic about speaking in Punjabi for the first time," said Manohar.

Provoked is based on the real life story of battered wife Kiranjit Ahluwalia who murdered her husband.

The linguistic blitzkrieg isn't random. "Domestic violence isn't just an Asian phenomenon. Through the presence of Aishwarya we want the message to reach every corner of the world," said Manohar.

He intends to fly down the film's distinguished British cast for the premiere.

"Miranda Richardson and Robbie Coltrane are expected to join Aishwarya for the Mumbai premiere. And, of course, the real Kiranjit Ahluwalia will attend it too. We'll also have a lavish premiere at Leicester Square in London," said Manohar.

I think that the movie is well enough to rock both in England and India as it is related to a significant issue of both English and Indian society. Now, it is yet to see how people take Aishwarya’s voice in Punjabi language.
