It looks like Disney India is once again going the extra mile to attract its desi audience with the upcoming Frozen 2. PursueNews has learnt that star Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra have been roped in to voice the character of Elsa and Anna respectively in the animated feature film.
Fans would remember that the original film had Kristen Bell voice as Elsa and the actress reprised her role for the sequel as well. The two sisters/Indian stars have been brought in to voice for the Hindi version of the movie.
The original Frozen movie earned over $1.2 billion at the box office worldwide and was praised by fans all over the world. Piggy Chops also commented on her involvement with the project noting the success of its original film.
“Elsa is a fictional character who’s known to be strongly-opinionated and level headed, traits that I deeply connect with. This not only made me want to be part of the film, but also gives me a wonderful opportunity to present one of the most-successful animated films to our local audiences. My happiness just goes up a notch knowing that Parineeti will be voicing Anna’s character. The two of us have never worked together before and this seems like a perfect movie to come together and an experience that I am going to cherish forever.”
Confirming the announcement, actress Parineeti Chopra said, “You don’t need to be an actress to dream of being a Disney princess!! I absolutely loved the first film, it’s my favourite animation film but never thought that I’d get to voice Anna. But of course the real cherry on the cake is that I’ve been cast in a film about sisters with my real life sister!! While dubbing we would keep laughing about the fact that we are actually like our characters in real life! Mimi didi is totally like Elsa and I’m totally like Anna! This is why this movie will always be special. I can’t wait for the audience response.”
This certainly isn’t the first Priyanka Chopra Jonas has lent her voice to a Disney film. The actress voiced as Kaa in the Hindi version of ‘The Jungle Book’ in 2016 and also voiced another character called Ishani in 2013’s ‘Planes’.
Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, Frozen 2 will hit theaters in India in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on November 22, 2019.
