Toshi Sinha (Hindi: तोशी सिन्हा Tōśī Sinhā, born in Mumbai, Maharashtra) is an Indian voice actress who specializes for dubbing foreign productions as a self-employed Freelance dubbing artist.[2] She also does voice acting for local Indian productions as well, and even a Radio Jockey and a Radio programmer. She's been active since May of 2001.

Dubbing career[edit]

Most TV channels do not mention the Hindi dubbing credits nor its staff after the end of the original ending credits, since changing the credits casting for the original actors or voice actors involves a huge budget on modifying. That is perhaps why encounters such as the one Toshi Sinha had one time, is considered precious. Toshi Sinha has dubbed for Raven-Symoné's role as a perky teenage girl Raven Lydia Baxter, in the Disney Channel live-action sitcom series That's So Raven. Her role relates how the teller in a bank, a young girl, heard her voice, and told Toshi Sinha that it reminded her of Raven. "When I told her it was me, she literally started jumping and screeching," as Sinha said, who enjoyed the momentary attention but at the same time felt a tad guilty for holding up the queue. But in other case, she is considered to be the official Hindi dubbing artist for Raven-Symoné, since she can sound exactly like her. She did mention that it was also simple to impersonate Raven's body language as she says that she is a lot like her - "half-mad and hyper", via personality perspective.[citation needed]

Largely, while dubbing for famous characters with an established brand value, artists are asked to stick to imitation rather than innovation.[3] She even dubbed for foreign content that'd go on Disney Channel, Cartoon Network, Pogo, Nickelodeon and UTV.

She has also been known for being the Hindi dubbing voice to Anna Popplewell's role as Susan Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia film series. Her colleagues involved in the Hindi dub of the films were Ankur Javeri who voiced William Moseley as Peter Pevensie, Shubhraj Bhat who voiced Skandar Keynes as Edmund Pevensie, Prachi Save Sathi who voiced Georgie Henley as Lucy Pevensie, Rajesh Jolly who voiced Aslan (replacing Liam Neeson's voice) and Yudhvir Dahiya who dubbed for Ben Barnes as Prince Caspian.
