Dimple to play Akki’s mum


Dimple Kapadia is touched by Akshay Kumar’s gesture of asking her to lend her voice in the forthcoming big budget animation film Jumbo. She is really excited about the fact that she (Akshay’s mother-in-law) was offered to do the voiceover for Akshay’s mother in the movie. “Jumbo is really special. It has given me an opportunity to play mother to my own son-in-law. It’s Akshay who has brought the film to me,” she said. Dimple is essaying the character of Devi in the film.

“I saw the film and liked it a lot. It is a very sweet, emotional story about family love, togetherness. It is really nice to work with your close ones in a film which is high on family values,” Dimple adds.

Earlier a source close to the film had informed that Dimple got very emotional when Akshay approached her to do the film.

The insider informed, “Akshay is very close to her. He really wanted Dimple to be a part of his film. He has never done a film like this before and only wanted people close to him to be a part of it. Dimple has done a fantastic job as Akshay’s mother.” — Agencies
