After the last power-packed Oscar nominated movie, Bridge of Spies, the visionary and celebrated filmmaker Steven Spielberg is back with fantasy adventure film The BFG.
It looks like the rumors indeed are true. Amitabh Bachchan has come on board to voice the good giant aka The BFG (The Big Friendly Giant) itself for the Hindi dubbed version, which is played by prominent actor Mark Rylance in the original version. Big B also admits that he’d love his grand-daughter Aaradhya to see the film even though, growing up, he never befriended any mythical monsters.
Gulshan Grover and Parineeti Chopra have already been roped in to dub for the same. While Gulshan lends his voice to the bad giant, The Fleshlumpeater, Parineeti voices for the female protagonist of the film Sophie, played by 12 year-old Ruby Barnhill.
Reliance Entertainment has a pan India release for this friendly giant movie in 4 languages – English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
