And now, the actor has revealed how was his experience to be the voice of one of the most mean villain, who even makes the super heroes dread him and what about the film and character made him say an instant yes.

On a serious note, the actor reveals that Thanos is a character that he has read about in books as a child and has seen has seen in earlier Marvel movies. And this time with Infinity War, where he is meaner, stronger and deadlier, it was exciting for him to be the voice of Thanos. He is an ardent fan of superhero flicks and shares that he makes time to watch all the releases. Be it Black Panther or Captain America Civil War or Doctor Strange.
Rana also hopes that he his fans love what he has done with the character of Thanos for the Telugu dubbed version of Avengers: Infinity War. “I was shooting in Thailand on one hand and then had to travel in one or more planes and reach Mumbai and dub for 14 hours straight to complete the dubbing for the superhero film. I hope you all like it,” Rana says.
