Former Miss India and Bollywood actress Gul Panag has lent her voice to two wildlife documentaries by National Geographic. The beauty queen in a recent interview to a leading daily talked about her experience of doing the voiceovers.
Talking about it, she shared, “At an emotional level, it was an absolutely new experience. What the films about the pangolin and gharial brought out in me, was a sense of anguish that I perhaps may not have experienced before while doing voice work”.
Gul also said that the training she has received in voice modulation, articulation, and manner of speech has helped her in expressing the sense of despair, anticipation, and optimism that are the underlying emotions of these documentaries.
The purpose of such work is to invite planet lovers to share and revel in the joys of what nature has to offer, she said, adding, “And, also provoke them to think about what they can do individually, through advocating for our ecosystems. To push us towards action. The medium of visual storytelling has made activists and conservationists out of so many of us”.
Tiger Queen of Taru and On the Brink will be screened at 12 pm and 1 pm respectively on April 22 on National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo Wild at World Earth Day 2021.
Besides this, Gul Panag is gearing up for some interesting work on the OTT platform, where she has featured in some popular web series. Gul was last seen in Paatal Lok and The Family Man.
