Her own voice: A day in the life of Smita Malhotra, a voice artist

Judgementall Hai Kya centres around a dubbing artist who can’t separate herself from characters she voices for. Malhotra talks about the effort it takes.

She is wary of revealing her age. But it’s not out of vanity, Smita Malhotra clarifies. Three years ago, she was called to lend her voice for the Hindi dub of the blockbuster movie Baahubali 2. In the studio, a member of the production team pointed out that the character is a young, 23-year-old girl. And then, with a note of scepticism, asked Malhotra her age. “Had I told her my age, she may have viewed my performance through that lens. And as voice artistes, we train ourselves to be versatile enough to sound six, 16 or even 60,” explains Malhotra. So she ignored the question and went on to deliver what was expected of her as the voice of the feisty Devasena, played by Anushka Shetty in the film. Based in Mumbai, Malhotra, a native of Delhi, has over 20 years of experience behind the microphone.

Artist Tarsem Singh is putting Punjab’s poets and songwriters in the spotlight through poetry, films, and sketches.

Tarsem Singh has created a new format for these short films, moving away from simple narrations by poets, and has instead developed a story revolving around the poetry, apart from getting actors to play the characters in special locations.


For sculptor, painter, poet, and filmmaker Tarsem Singh, who believes that each artform has a new story to narrate, every medium has its own vocabulary. With a masters degree in sculpture from Santiniketan, and bachelors from the Government College of Art, Singh discovered the power of a camera and the medium of filmmaking to give his sculptures a wider reach.
