Director Soumitra Ranade, who made movies like Jajantaram Mamantaram, is coming up with an animated movie on the famous Arabian Night fable Alibaba and 40 thieves. His 3d animation film will have the international standards of Hollywood movies like Monsters Inc, King Kong and Happy Feet.
Soumitra approached John Abraham to lend his voice to Alibaba, the chief protagonist in the film. The director felt that no other actor could have suited Alibaba’s voice better than John.
Last month John took a week off from his busy schedule and devoted his entire time for the rehearsal and then the actual dubbing. Ashutosh Rana, Atul Kulkarni, Saurabh Shukla, Raza Murad and Mukesh Tiwari have also lent their voices to the other characters in the film.
