    Congratulations Mr. Francois for the award.

    Thank you Darpan for interviewing him and passing this on. Voice-over has been included for National Awards since 2003. Yet only a handful of us in the industry knew about it until now.

    Congratulations to Francois Castellino not only for his work but also for the wonderful and touching spirit behind the work he does. The recognition that he he has received is a testimony to the work of so many voiceover artistes in our country who are never heard of or acknowledged. Darrpan I am really happy to see that you are taking the lead in giving a name and face to the many talented vocal artistes we have. Best wishes and hope that this is the beginning of many more accolades for voiceover artistes and a recognition of the work they do.

    What an endearingly expressive rendition of such an extremely pleasant professional ..!!
    Kudos to Francois, incidentally, my dearly beloved nephew who, just as he has so expressively
    enumerated, I’m sure, must have also touched and inspired many a fellow listener too ..
    His frank and free tete a tete made not only listening to it a total pleasure but, even so much
    of a warm experience to hear him in so eagerly prompting and prodding the young and aspiring
    hopeful to find the confidence and encouragement for seeking similar goals in life … !!
    Bravo Francois !!
