Posted 02 Dec 2016 02:05 PM

With Haryanvi characters gaining popularity in movies and TV serials these days, there has been a demand for dubbing artistes and accent trainers who can teach the state's earthy dialect to actors.One dubbing artist of Haryana, Sunita Sharma, has gained popularity by offering accent training to noted Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, for his upcoming biopic `Dangal,' based on the life of wrestling coach Mahavir Singh Phogat, and Kangana Ranaut for her character `Datto' in `Tanu Weds Manu Returns.' Before she became famous, Sunita worked as a dubbing artist for about 18 years. She said: “I worked for about 18 years as a dubbing and voice artiste, but couldn't get the acclaim that I got in two years by doing these two films.“ She has worked with many TV serials production companies to dub for lead women actors, and as a langua ge trainer for many daily soaps.“Dubbing is voice acting. Voice artistes do with their voice what actors do by acting in real.It always gave me a sense of pleasure and satisfaction to work as a voice artiste.“
Her son Harshwardhan Sharma (18) is studying engineering, and daughter Suvela Sharma (21) is also a dubbing artiste who has worked for Sony TV's eoic serial `Sankat Mochan Mahabali Hanuman'.When asked about how she felt training Aamir, Sunita said: “For me, it hardly matters who is in front of me to learn. I give my hundred per cent to each actor. What I can say is that Aamir Sir and Kangana are very good learners. They followed everything I suggested. Kangana has proved that by essaying the role of `Datto', and we are waiting for the release of `Dangal'.“

Sunita, who belongs to Ku rukshetra, initially worked as a radio announcer for All India Radio in the town before shifting to Mumbai, with her husband Virender Sharma, who was an actor. Sunita lost her husband while working for `Dangal.' She said Virender would have been very happy to see her success. Her father Ramesh Lal Kukreja always wanted her to be a teacher, so that Sunita even worked in a school as a primary teacher. She said: “The image of Haryanvi films is very bad. I want to help Haryanvi film-makers, but I don't want to get associated with the work which degrades the image of Haryana in any sense.“
