The original Disco King of Indian music Bappi Lahiri has entertained a generation of moviegoers and is now he is back with his new song. The Shiny Singer croons his way into Disney’s next fun adventure animated gem – Moana with a song called “Shona” (Gold).
Following the tremendous success of Vishal Bhardwaj and Gulzar’s reprisal of “Jungle Jungle Baat Chali Hai!” and the Hindi localized version of “Bare Necessities” featuring Vishal Dadlani, the studio is all set to localize their forthcoming film Moana and has collaborated with Bappida to voice the dialogues and sing for the character of Tamatoa, a giant crab with a fondness for shiny treasures found which he hoards!
Speaking of this collaboration, Bappida says it is a pleasure to associate with Disney and Moana. “I am always looking forward to doing new things and this is the first time I’m dubbing for an animated character which is strangely very similar to my own personality. I am hoping that people will enjoy this avatar of mine and shower their love on me like they have always done. It’s truly a ‘golden’ memory”
Moana stars Auli’i Cravalho as the titular heroine and Dwayne Johnson as Maui. Moana showcases the life-changing journey of a tenacious 16-year-old who teams up with the mighty demigod Maui to fulfill an ancient quest.
