Mumbai: Ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh dubbed for an animation film "Baru-The Wonder Kid" and says this is his first experience of giving a voiceover and that he loved it as he enjoys working for kids.

"I really enjoyed it. This is the first time that I have done something beyond singing. In any case, I enjoy working for kids. Dubbing dialogues was definitely fun and emoting the role of dadaji was great," said Singh.

`Baru-The Wonder Kid` revolves around a 12-year-old orphan boy and his courageous journey to free his sister from the clutches of a devil Prince. Co-produced by Vishnu Manohar and Prabhakar Shukla, the film is directed by Sachin Gote and will hit screens in October.

"I have worked with Jagjit-ji earlier. He sang a song in my first film `Gudiya` and was kind enough to agree to dub for `Baru...`. He asked to be the narrator, saying that he knows how grand fathers speak. He did it as goodwill for kids and didn`t charge even a penny for the work," said Prabhakar Shukla in a statement.

Besides Singh, others who have dubbed for `Baru - The Wonder Kid` are Sharad Kelkar, Vrajesh Hirjee and Nandu Madhav.
