The Lion King is one of the much-awaited films of 2019. Recently, Shah Rukh Khan shared that he will be giving the voice to the character Mufasa in Hindi and his son will be dubbing for Simba. Along with Hindi, the film will also be releasing in Tamil version.
Actor Siddharth will be lending his voice to the character Simba in the Tamil version of The Lion King.
The actor took to his Twitter page to share the same news. Sid tweeted, "It's a huge honour to voice #Simba in #Tamil in #TheLionKing. It is that extra bit special because I'm the biggest fan of the genius @donaldglover. I hope I have managed at least a fraction of the magic that he has in the film. Thank you #Disney and @Jon_Favreau for this."
As reported by Indian Express, Siddharth said in a statement, "I can never forget the first time I saw The Lion King on screen as well as on stage.
I had an equally unforgettable experience speaking and singing in Tamil as Simba in the spectacular new version of this timeless classic. I can’t wait to see my new avatar in the cinema with my audience." The Lion King is directed by Jon Favreau and it will hit the screens on July 19, 2019.
