By now we are all aware of the fact that Armaan Malik is the voice for Aladdin in the Disney’s recreation and we are mighty excited about this project. With the Chale Aana singer's association, the makers have added a desi touch to our favourite childhood fantasy story. Last week, when BollywoodLife got an opportunity to interact with Armaan for his big collaboration with Disney, the 23-year-old musician revealed how he bagged this project, his memories attached to the story of Aladdin and characters among other things.
The singing sensation also treated us with a live demo of how he dubbed the Hindi dialogues for Aladdin and even crooned the Hindi version of 'A Whole New World' that he has recorded for the film. The young chap has lent his soothing voice for the recreation titled Naya Jahaan and it is too beautiful for words.
Before you officially hear the song when it is released by the makers, we have an EXCLUSIVE teaser of the same by the man himself. And while you won't get to see how Armaan dubbed the dialogues, we have got your back here too.
Meanwhile, during our 'what if' segment, we asked Armaan to cast Bollywood actors for a desi version of Aladdin and he had some interesting names in mind. Armaan revealed some big Bollywood stars for the roles of Aladdin, Jafar, Sultan, Princess Jasmine and Genie. The singer named Alia Bhatt as Jasmine, Varun Dhawan/ Kartik Aaryan for Aladdin's part, Ranveer Singh for Genie and Manoj Pahwa for Sultan.
Earlier in a statement, expressing his excitement to be part of the venture, Armaan had said, "Aladdin has been one of my favourite films since childhood. Being a musician my fascination with the film began with its songs, A Whole New World my favourite among all of them. I am really honoured to be given the opportunity to be the voice of Aladdin."
Directed by Guy Ritchie, Aladdin is a musical fantasy featuring Will Smith, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, and Billy Magnussen. The film is scheduled to hit the screens on May 24.
