The Voice of Shin-chan

In an interview, while talking about her journey of becoming a voice artist, she said,

So, along with college, I did some Radio commercials which also helped in my training for being a voiceover artist – mimicking kid’s voice for Horlicks advertisements and other different voices for various other things on the radio. From there, I got the idea of being a voice-over artist.”

After completing her graduation, Akanksha started working as a freelance voice-over artist. In 2015, she was offered to play the Hindi voice of the fictional character Shin-chan Nohara in the superhit Japanese animated series Crayon Shin-chan. According to her, she was unaware of the cartoon until she started preparing for its voice. Akanksha is the fourth artist to give the Hindi voice of Shin-chan since it first aired in 2006 in India.
