Chetan Shashital Biography

Chetan Shashital is a veteran actor better known as a dubbing artist and voice actor. He is also a good singer. He is known by the nickname ‘The Big C’ for his expertise in the voice-acting industry in India.  He has dubbed for many Hollywood movies to Hindi. He has also dubbed for Bollywood actors. He is also an expert in matching the original voices. He has lent his voice to Amjad Khan and also Rajiv Gandhi after his death, for a two-part documentary by Simi Garewal. The second part of the documentary was released after Rajiv Gandhi’s death and a dubbing artist was required to dub certain portions where Rajiv’s voice was not clear.


Chetan has also dubbed for Sunny Deol for a series of movies when the actor was unavailable for dubbing work. Deol had fallen off from the horse at that time and later Chetan dubbed for him for the movies – Vishnudeva, Majboor and Insaaniyat. Though voice actors play a significant role in the career growth of artists, their works are often ignored and not credited. Their work is concealed like as if it is a 'crime', as it may affect the actor’s image – argues Big C.


Shashital has dubbed for many leading artists of Bollywood including Big B, Salman Khan, Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt and Dharmendra. He dubbed for Salman Khan for the blockbuster of 1999, Biwi No 1. Baloo the Bear from Talespin and The Jungle Book 2 and Genie from Disney's Aladdin are among his noted works for animated films. He attended the auditions before he was selected to dub for Robin Williams for the voice of Genie. He has also dubbed for television ads, including the voice for Sachin Tendulkar.
