Malayalam filmmaker Kamal’s next directorial, a biopic on the poet-extraordinaire Kamala Das, has been titled ‘My Story’. The film stars Vidya Balan playing the lead role alongside few talented Bollywood and Malayalam film actors. The shooting for the movie will begin in September this year.
Vidya will be seen speaking in Hindi, English and Malayalam in the movie. We heard that the director wants her to sound like Kamala Das without mimicking her and for that a voice coach is being brought on board to ensure Vidya gets the nuances right.
Indian cinema’s most accomplished sound designer Resul Pookutty has come on board to give a fully credible audio life to Vidya’s character. He will be using a special software to make her voice sound as close to Kamala Das as possible.
