Jagjit Singh has dubbed for the voice of Dada ji, the narrator of this story. Says he, “I really enjoyed it. This is the first time that I have done something beyond singing. In any case I do enjoy working for the kids. Dubbing dialogues was definitely fun and emoting the role of dadaji was great.” According to the director Sachin Gote he himself had put in a lot of initiatives to improvise.
He had finished dubbing within 3 hours. Says one of the producers, Prabhakar Shukla, “we were dubbing in Amar haldipur ji’s studio. He has shown some clippings of Baru to Jagjit Ji. Once he swa those he liked it immensely. When I heard this I approached him. He had sung for my first film Gudiya and knew me. He saw the full film, and was kind enough to agree. He asked to be the narrator, saying that I know how grand fathers speak. He asked for dialogues and did it as goodwill for kids. Did not charge even a penny for the work.” Adds Vishnu Manohar, “his voice has added so much of class to the character and the film.”
