It’s Rana Daggubati. His voice, to be precise. The Baahubali actor has lent his voice to the character of baddie, Thanos in the Telugu version of Avengers: Infinity War.

The upcoming mega Hollywood film, which features an ensemble of superheroes, will release on April 27. Disney India, in a move to expand its localisation efforts, has signed on Rana to dub for the villainous character.

“I’ve grown up reading Marvel Comics and Marvel movies with their intricately woven storylines. It is fascinating to see how Marvel has created characters and stories that resonate so well with audiences across the globe, making movies at a scale that one had never before imagined,” Rana said.

“Characters such as Iron Man and Captain America have been my favourites. So dubbing for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ was thrilling. Voicing for Thanos, a villain so powerful that some of the biggest superheroes have a tough time dealing with, was an exciting experience,” added the actor, who has finished dubbing for the movie.

Disney India adopted a similar strategy for The Jungle Book in 2016, signing on Priyanka Chopra, Irrfan Khan, Nana Patekar, late Om Puri and Shefali Shah, to bring to life the characters in the Hindi version of the film.

It was followed by roping in actor Varun Dhawan for Captain America in the movie Captain America Civil War.

Avengers: Infinity War is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and produced by Kevin Feige.

The movie stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Josh Brolin, Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch among others.

The film is releasing in India in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
