Mumbai, Nov 25 (IANS): Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra shared a funny anecdote about his release ’12th Fail’ and said that he lent his voice to a dog’s character in the film.
Taking to Instagram, he posted a reel in which he said: “I write, produce, direct. But did you know that I’ve also been a dog in the film?”
Laughing, Vidhu said: “There is this scene where he (Vikrant Massey) is running in the night. Now I wanted this very specific sound of a woof-woof, we couldn’t really find it so I gave the barking sound. (Laughs) So remember this, when you watch the movie and this scene in particular, I was actually the dog here.”
He captioned: “Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s pawsitively entertaining magic meets ‘12th Fail’’s charm!”
This quirky, and weirdly hilarious tidbit of going behind-the-scenes is also a testament to the director’s creative vision of making this as nuanced and detailed as he could, showing his dedication to filmmaking and storytelling.

Apart from covering exam preparations, the movie also covers the struggles of all the aspirants, exploring their many personal problems that aspiring students face both at homes as well as in their personal relationships during exam studies.
