6 years ago

Veteran filmmaker Govind Nihalani, who is looking forward to his upcoming animation film, 'Kamlu Happy Happy' feels that the presence of a Bollywood star or their voice-over does add value to such projects.

 

"In animation films, stars do add value to the product. The fact is that the presence of stars or even their voice-over for animated films adds tremendous value. The stars also become part of publicity which finally helps the film," Nihalani told PTI.

 

"Stars are also good actors, so with their distinctive voice and acting skills they bring in the right attitude and feel to the animated character. It makes the film more enjoyable," he added.

 

'Kamlu Happy Happy', Nihalani's first such project revolves round the central character, Kamlu, the Camel alongside other interesting human and animal characters.

 

It is the story of a baby camel who wants to fly. The crux of the story is dreaming the impossible and making it happen.

 

Nihalani, who is well-known for films like 'Aakrosh' (1980)', 'Ardh Satya' (1982), 'Hazaar Chaurasi Ki Maa' is the director, producer and story-writer of the animated film.

 

"The protagonist of the film is a baby camel in Rajasthan who wants to fly. Lot of other characters in the film tells the baby camel that it is not possible for him to fly without wings. But how and why the camel wants to fly is what the story is about. The film is for both for adults and children and is full of adventure," he said.

 

The film is in 3D and will release in May this year both in English and Hindi. For the Hindi version Nihalani is in the process of finalizing some Bollywood actors.

 

"For the English version we have had professional voice-over artists from Hollywood. And for the Hindi version we are negotiating with some stars, hence cannot reveal their names," Nihalani said. PTI
