Earlier we had mentioned that several celebrities will be coming together to dub the Hindi version of one of India’s most loved animated series The Jungle Book. And now recently, former beauty queen and actress Priyanka Chopra launched the Hindi version of ‘Kaa’ in Disney’s The Jungle Book in a special video clip.
The reason why Priyanka Chopra took over the voice of ‘Kaa’ for its Hindi version was because her playful and sultry voice was apt to match Scarlett Johannsson’s sensual rendition of ‘Kaa’ in the English version of the film. Priyanka Chopra also tweeted about it saying, “@TheJungleBook was one of my favorite parts of my childhood & now I get to be in it as the voice of Kaa! Wooopiee!”
Besides her, the other actors who have lent their voice for the Hindi version of The Jungle Book include Irrfan Khan (Baloo), Shefali Shah (Raksha), Om Puri (Bagheera), Nana Patekar (Sher Khan) among others. The film is slated to release in India on April 8, a week before US release.
