It will really be special to watch this movie with our little one, Abram as he is a big fan of the film. And watching his big brother and father voice the characters in this live-action version is surely going to make it a memorable experience,”
Glad to be a part of this journey… a timeless film. Voicing it in Hindi with my own Simba. The last time we did a film was around 15 years ago and it was ‘Incredible’ and this time around its even more fun. Hope everyone enjoys it 19th July onwards. #TheLionKing https://t.co/rJEfxevA9k
