Baahubali star Rana Daggubati to Dub for Avengers: Infinity War

Indian actor Rana Daggubati has joined Avengers: Infinity War universe. The star will lend his voice for the character of Thanos for the Telugu version of the Hollywood film. Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War, which features an ensemble of superheroes, will release worldwide on April 27.

"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 in a statement.

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

Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Hemsworth, Josh Brolin, Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Cumberbatch, and many more.
