Andrea dubs for Ileana’s character in Nanban

Not often girls with a pretty face possess an hour-glass figure; it’s even more a rarity that a girl with a pretty face and a figure-to-die-for owns a beautiful voice. The case of Andrea Jermaiah is, therefore, a unique one. Andrea, who debuted in films with Gautham Menon’s Pachchaikili Muthucharam, is also a much-in-demand playback singer who has sung many hit songs including t including the Idhuvarai… number from number from Venkatprabhu’s Goa.

She now debuts as a dubbing artiste with director Shankar’s upcoming film Nanban. Andrea dubs for the film’s heroine Ileana who makes a comeback in Tamil films many years after debuting as an actress with Kedi. Ileana is paired opposite Vijay in the film, a remake of the Hindi hit film 3 Idiots, which also co-stars stars like Jiiva, Srikanth, Anuya, Sathyaraj and SJ Suriyah.
The curvaceous Ileana reprises the role essayed by Bollywood’s Kareena Kapoor in the original version. Shankar, who had been looking for the ‘right voice’ to dub for Ileana’s character in the film, zeroed in on Andrea’s voice. Though Andrea is busy with her acting and singing careers, she couldn’t say ‘no’ to Shankar’s offer to dub for Ileana in his upcoming film.
“I agreed to dub for Ileana’s character in Nanban mainly because it’s a project by a director of Shankar’s caliber. I feel that dubbing for an artiste who plays the lead role in his film is almost like acting in his film under his direction,” says a proud Andrea.
Who knows, Shankar might rope in Andrea as the heroine in his next film itself!
