The much-anticipated trailer of Shivarajkumar’s latest venture, the Ghost Kannada film, was released on October 1. The film has garnered attention not just for its star-studded cast and gripping storyline, but also for its innovative use of technology. The film has made use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for voice dubbing in multiple languages.
AI Voice Dubbing & Digital De-Ageing in Ghost Kannada Film
Shivarajkumar, the lead actor in the film, has dubbed in Kannada and Tamil. For other languages like Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi, the team used an AI tool to record his voice. This innovative approach has piqued the interest of audiences and industry insiders alike.
Another aspect that caught the audience’s attention in the trailer is the digital de-ageing applied to certain segments of the film. Some of Shivarajkumar’s looks take the audience back to his roles in Anand, Inspector Vikram and Samyukta. The director mentions that Ghost showcases Shivarajkumar’s character in multiple shades, and the de-ageing element plays a crucial role.
Ghost is not a typical gangster drama but rather a heist thriller. Produced by Sandesh Productions, it is set to be released on October 19. The film also stars Anupam Kher, Archana Jois, and Jayaram in pivotal roles.
The use of AI in films is not new, but its application in voice dubbing is a novel concept. It opens up new possibilities for the film industry, allowing actors to reach audiences in different languages without language barriers.
The Ghost Kannada film is a testament to how technology can enhance storytelling and bring stories to life in ways previously unimaginable. As we look forward to its release, one thing is clear – AI has taken center stage in filmmaking, and it’s here to stay.
