Actor Narain was recently in the news for joining hands with Lokesh Kanagaraj again in Kamal Haasan-starrer Vikram. He is now elated over the success of Jai Bhim as he has played a crucial part in it. Confused? Well, he has dubbed for Suriya in the movie's Malayalam version. 

The Gnanavel directorial was lauded by fans of Suriya and other movie buffs in Kerala ever since it started streaming on Amazon Prime Video. A few writers, celebs and politicians among others in Kerala went gaga over the hard-hitting portrayal of the injustice meted out to a few have-nots in the society. 

In a release issued by Narain, the actor stated that he is feeling happy and proud for having lent voice for Suriya in the project's Malayalam version. He agreed to dub for Suriya as soon as he was approached by the makers. However, the process wasn't that easy as he had expected it to be.

Narain said, "I feel great to have dubbed for Suriya sir in Jai Bhim. Earlier, I had lent voice for him in the Malayalam version of Soorarai Pottru as well. When I was approached for dubbing for Jai Bhim, I agreed immediatley. But contrary to my expectations, it was quite a challengig task."  

He added, "Suriya sir's acting and his pronunciation made dubbing process complex for me. His performance was so nuanced that I had to stop and observe every frame while dubbing. It was indeed a different experience. It also helped me learn more about cinema." 

Narain, who was last seen in Susienthiran's Champion in 2019, last came up with a notable performance in Lokesh's Karthi-starrer Kaithi (streaming on Amazon Prime Video).
