‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to dub the Hindi version for Angelina Jolie
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who has been missing from the silver screen for a very long time is currently busy with one of her Hollywood project. The makers of ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’, featuring Angelina Jolie have been gearing up for the grand release of the film all across the globe. Interestingly, Aishwarya is now roped in to lend her voice to Angelina in the film’s Hindi version. Now isn’t that a great news?
The much-anticipated film ‘Maleficient: Mistress of Evil‘ is said to depict the journey of Maleficent and Princess Aurora, exactly five years after the release of its first instalment. Joining the Disney Universe, Aishwarya will now lend her beautiful voice for Angelina’s character in the film.
Talking about having the ace actress on board, Bikram Duggal, Head – Studio Entertainment, Disney India, said in a statement, “Looking at how Angelina Jolie fits ‘Maleficent’s role down to the letter, it was hard to imagine anyone else essaying the character other than Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for our local audience. We wanted to build a strong connect and bring her character to life in Hindi and felt Aishwarya’s persona, which is filled with elegance and poise, would be a perfect blend.”
This would be surely a treat for the Aishwarya Rai Bachchan fans out there.
We have several Bollywood stars who have dubbed for the Hindi versions of many Hollywood films. Just recently, it was Shah Rukh Khan and his son Aryan Khan, who had lent their voices for the characters of Mufasa and Simba respectively in the recently released ‘The Lion King’.
We are looking forward to seeing Aishwarya spread her magic with her beautiful voice.
