Aishwarya Rai to voice Angelina Jolie's character in Hindi version of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

Directed by Joachim Ronning, the film is scheduled to hit theatres on October 18

Published: 01st October 2019

Back in 2014, Angelina Jolie starred in Maleficent, essaying the role of the powerful fairy. That film raked in over $800 million, and five years on, the makers are coming out with a sequel titled Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil. Interestingly, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be dubbing for Jolie's voice for the Hindi version of this sequel.

Bikram Duggal, the head of Studio Entertainment at Disney India, said, "Looking at how Angelina Jolie fits Maleficent's role down to the letter, it was hard to imagine anyone else essaying the character other than Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for our local audience. We wanted to build a strong connect and bring her character to life in Hindi, and felt Aishwarya's persona, which is filled with elegance and poise, would be the perfect blend."

Directed by Joachim Ronning, Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil is set to open in the cinemas on October 18.

Meanwhile, Aishwarya is also teaming up with Mani Ratnam for his ambitious adaptation of Ponniyin Selvan.
