Kajol is following Ranveer Singh's footsteps by lending her voice to the character of Helen Parr, Elastigirl, for the Hindi version of Disney.Pixar's Incredibles 2. "Incredibles 2 brings to us a heartwarming tale of a family that is like us. But yet they are different. There were so many moments in the story that I could relate with and I knew I had to join the fun," Kajol said in a statement to IANS. The actress even took to her Twitter account to announce this 'incredible' news and we can't wait to hear her as Elastigirl.
The sequel picks up right after the 2004 original, with Craig T. Nelson returning as the voice of Bob Parr, Holly Hunter as Elastigirl and Samuel L. Jackson as Frozone. Brad Bird, who voices fashion designer Edna Mode, is back to direct the project. The sequel again deals with the Parr family attempting balance having a normal life with their superhero powers. "I am really excited to be a part of the family of Supers and contribute to this fun feature in my own special way," added Kajol. It was only recently when we had Ranveer Singh dubbing for Deadpool aka Ryan Reynolds' character in its Hindi version. Before that Varun Dhawan had lend his voice for Captain America in Civil War Hindi version. Guess this is a promotional strategy that these production houses are initiating. Asking a popular face to voice for a Hollywood character would mean attracting more local viewers and increasing the collections indirectly.
