Deadpool is easily one of the most loved and relatable Marvel superheroes for his eccentric personality and brilliant comic timing. In the 2016 Deadpool film Ryan Reynold won everyone over, as he fit perfectly into the role with his infectious energy and meta jokes. With the second installment of the film hitting the theatres on May 18th, we recently found out that the film will be dubbed in Hindi as well. And who better to fit the bill as Deadpool than the our very own powerhouse of wit – Ranveer Singh!
To announce the Hindi trailer of Deadpool 2, Ranveer took to Twitter:
Astonishing how effectively I’ve managed to out-crass my Canadian counterpart @VancityReynolds. Never realised how fulfilling & rewarding foul Hindi language can be! #Deadpool2Hindi @FoxStarIndia https://t.co/BqZoxvEEls

The trailer features Ranveer’s trademark brand of energy as he delivers the perfect desi version of Deadpool – cursing without abandon, switching between Marathi and Punjabi accents, and even say things like ‘madam aise dialogue se sitti nahi bajengi’.
Twitter users went wild, commenting on how the Bollywood actor perfectly fits the bill. Interestingly, Ryan Reynolds also reacted on Twitter saying
Well if I tried to curse in Hindi, pretty sure there would be an international incident. https://t.co/cxeRIiUy5o

In a statement by Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios, says, “Like Deadpool, Ranveer, too, is known for his smart, witty and irreverent humour. He’s a daring and powerhouse actor and we absolutely relished having him on board for our biggest superhero film.”
Earlier Varun Dhawan and Tiger Shroff have lent their voices for Captain America: Civil War and Spiderman Homecoming respectively. This makes Ranveer the third Bollywood actor to have dubbed for a Marvel movie.
