Ajay-Kajol to act along with animated characters in Toonpur Ka Superhero
It seems real life married couple Ajay and Kajol are enjoying their experience of working with each other. So after Ajay’s home production U, Me Aur Hum, both the stars will be seen playing themselves and acting alongside 19 other animated characters in the film Toonpur Ka Superhero. The film will be a first of its kind in the Indian market where real and animated characters will be seen together in an entire film. The film will be jointly produced by Kumar Mangat’s production house and Eros International.
The film will also mark the directorial debut of ad filmmaker Kireet Khurana who has won the national award five times for his ad films. Obviously the film will have some of the best digital effects. In fact Khurana plans to give his animated characters in the film mannerisms which are like those of our popular bollywood stars. So audiences will be able to identify and link which stars the animated characters mannerisms are like. Khurana will have a whole load of animated characters in the film and he has already begun creating many of them. Ajay and Kajol will play their real selves in the film and will interact with the animated characters. An excited Ajay said “I have never done a film with animated characters, so when the script was narrated to me I said yes immediately. Kajol too liked the story and was keen to be a part of it.”
The film is naturally a big budget film due to the special digital effects and so many animated characters. It has an estimated budget of around Rs.40 crores. One would remember the song with Saif Ali Khan, Rani and the two kids along with the animated characters in a song in the Yash Raj film Ta Ra Rum Pum. Toonpur Ka Superhero though will be a film completely animated. It will no doubt be an instant attraction with children. The film will probably be ready next year around Diwali.
