Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh has lent his voice to Ryan Reynold's Deadpool in the Hindi version of Hollywood film "Deadpool 2".
The film tells the story of an adult superhero with a twisted sense of humour. Based on Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, "Deadpool" is the original story of a former Special Forces operative who turns into a mercenary. "Deadpool 2", brought to India by Fox Star India, will open on May 18.
The production house wanted a star who would resonate with Deadpool's personality and Ranveer's wit and edgy personality was a perfect match, read a statement to IANS.
"Like Deadpool, Ranveer is known for his smart, witty with irreverent humour. He's a hugely daring and powerhouse actor and we absolutely relished having him on board for our biggest superhero film," said Vijay Singh, CEO Fox Star Studios.
The sequel also features Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Karan Soni, Zazie Beetz, Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan Kapicic and Leslie Uggams.
Ranveer Singh and Ryan Reynolds have, actually, three things:
1. They have perfected the comedy genre with their quirky sense of humor and the way they instantaneously create laughter by portraying different emotions in one narrative! Ryan Reynolds with Definitely Maybe, The Proposal and Deadpool. Ranveer with Band Baaja Baaraat, Gunday, Goliyon Ki Raasleela and Befikre.
2. They are both dating/married to Bollywood or Hollywood's beautiful women! Ryan and Blake Lively
That date turned out a lot like that infamous one in When Harry Met Sally. “It was like the most weird date for the respective parties because we were just like fireworks coming across,” Reynolds said. The two are like Barbie and Ken of Hollywood. They are so in love and have two beautiful daughters! Blake is considered one of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood. Similarly, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone have been dating for four years.
3. They're Style Gods! Suave, Lean and Mean! They are best known for their suiting styles. Well tailored, well matched and well represented. While Ryan has mastered the slim-fit look with designers such as Gucci, D'Marge, Bruno, Brionni and Burberry. Ranveer Singh has made the suits a very casual attire - accesorizng with Tee-Shirts, Sneakers and quirky Sunglasses. His favorite designers are also D'Marge and Manish Malhotra.
