Disney India has geared up for the Hindi version of the much anticipated live-action adaptation of the classic Aladdin. To add more magic to the film, Rapper Badhshah has been roped in to create an exciting new song whereas singer Armaan Malik will be lending his voice for titled character Aladdin.
Badshah and Armaan are two of the biggest musical youth icons in the country and the adaptation is seeming to be a definite hit with children and adults alike.
On being asked about the project, Badshah said, "Aladdin evokes a lot of fond memories for me when I was growing up, and this is a fantastic opportunity for me, to not only re-live my childhood but also be part of such a big ticket global adventure! The music video will release soon and I hope my fans embrace and enjoy this new offering from me".
Armaan spoke about his first collaboration with Disney and shared, “Aladdin has been one of my favorite films since childhood. Being a musician my fascination with the movie began with its songs, A Whole New World, being my favourite among all of them. I am really honoured to be given the opportunity to be the voice of Aladdin. Along with voicing for the movie, I’m even singing the beautiful songs from the soundtrack as well, and I just can’t wait for all my fans to see my work in the Hindi version!"
Bikram Duggal, a representative of Disney India said, "With Badshah and Armaan on board, we aim to make the live-action reach out to a wider audience and forge a deeper connect with existing and new fans across the country". The film is to be released on May 24.
