On February 26, Walt Disney's classic storytelling heritage comes alive with animated feature - Aladdin. As a part of Disney commitment to localisation, the first Indian television premiere of Aladdin will be aired in Hindi featuring Sonu Nigam as the voice of Aladdin and Chetan Shashital as Genie.
It will be telecast on Disney Channel's daily feature film destination, 'Disney Channel Movie' at 7:00 pm. It aims to fulfil the void of kid-driven family entertainment. The movie aims at providing complete entertainment for children and their families with music arrangement by Ranjit Barot, featuring opening score by Shankar Mahadevan. The closing theme song is a duet by Kavitha Krishnamurthy and Pervez Kadir
Hema Govindan, Head - Marketing and Communications, Walt Disney Television International (India), said, "We have a huge library of Disney movies and this is a programming initiative where we roll out several platinum movie titles like Jungle Book, Lion King etc. Our regular movie slot is focal point and key differentiator for Disney vis-à-vis other channels."
Set against an Arabian backdrop, the movie is tale of a street urchin's tryst with destiny. From frozen caves to forgotten catacombs in the sand, Aladdin and his band of friends discover the magic of love and friendship as they embark upon wondrous travels.
