Cartoon Network premiered the hugely successful animated movie ‘Shrek’ on June 17. To bond better with Indian kids, the channel adapted the movie in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu apart from English, with the inimitable Cyrus Broacha lending his voice to ‘Donkey’, one of the key protagonists, for the Hindi version of ‘Shrek’.
Monica Tata, Vice-President, Advertising Sales and Networks across India and South Asia at Turner International India, said, “The adaptation of ‘Shrek’ in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu is yet another milestone in our effort to reach out to as wide an audience as possible. We are especially delighted to have Cyrus on board as the voice of one of the key characters – Donkey – in the Hindi version. Cyrus, with his spontaneous witty delivery and quirky humour, has particularly been a great fit. I am sure kids across the country will enjoy this fantastic movie as part of Cartoon Network’s summer bonanza.”
The month of June will also witness other movie premieres on Cartoon Network such as ‘The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie’, ‘The Land before Time X: The Great Longneck Migration’, and ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’, among others.
