It’s not short of a casting coup to bring together some of the best and most talented Hindi film actors to a common place. Disney India has managed to rope in not one but five voices: Priyanka Chopra, Irrfan, Nana Patekar, Om Puri and Shefali Shah to lend their voice for the Hindi version of its most-anticipated live-action epic release, The Jungle Book.
Priyanka Chopra has time and again proved that she is an actor to reckon with her powerful portrayals, most recent one being her stirring performance in Bajirao Mastani. The Indian actor, currently creating waves on foreign shores, will match her sexy voice to Scarlett Johannson’s sensual rendition for Kaa, the python. In the recent past Priyanka also lent her voice to the character Ishani in Disney’s Planes and portrayed Alex Parrish IN ABC’S hit show Quantico.
Another Indian International actor, Irrfan, popular for his versatile roles in Piku, Life in a Metro, The Namesake, The Lunch Box and The Amazing Spiderman, will lend his voice to the friendly bear Baloo, which is dubbed by Bill Murray in the international version.
