From movies like URI: The Surgical Strike, Kabir Singh and WAR breaking the box-office records and big-budget movies like Kalank and Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi tanking at the box-office, the year 2019 has become quite a spectacle.
This year also saw A-lister actors like Shah Rukh Khan along with his son Aryan Khan and, recently, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan lending their voice for the Hindi versions of The Lion King and Maleficent respectively (both the projects were produced by Disney).
Now, taking to their official social media handle, Disney announced that their next project Frozen 2 will be dubbed by none other than Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Parineeti Chopra. Sharing a motion poster on their Instagram, they wrote, “Some moments are worth melting for! Welcoming the dynamic sisters @priyankachopra and @parineetichopra as the voices for Elsa and Anna in Hindi! #Frozen2 #FrozenSisters”
Speaking about being a part of the Frozen franchise, as quoted by Koimoi, Priyanka said, “Elsa is a fictional character who’s known to be strongly-opinionated and level headed, traits that I deeply connect with. This not only made me want to be part of the film but also gives me a wonderful opportunity to present one of the most successful animated films to our local audiences. My happiness just goes up a notch knowing that Parineeti will be voicing Anna’s character. The two of us have never worked together before and this seems like a perfect movie to come together and an experience that I am going to cherish forever.”
Confirming the announcement, as quoted by Koimoi, Parineeti shared, “You don’t need to be an actress to dream of being a Disney princess!! I absolutely loved the first film; it’s my favourite animation film but never thought that I’d get to voice Anna. But of course, the real cherry on the cake is that I’ve been cast in a film about sisters with my real-life sister!! While dubbing, we would keep laughing about the fact that we are actually like our characters in real life! Mimi didi (Priyanka) is totally like Elsa and I’m totally like Anna! This is why this movie will always be special. I can’t wait for the audience response.”

For the unversed, Frozen traces the journey of Queen Elsa (who has magical powers that allow her to create and control snow) and Princess Anna of the kingdom of Arendelle.
On the work front, while PeeCee is back to the US after the release of The Sky Is Pink and will soon begin working on The White Tiger, a Netflix original, Pari will be next seen in Bhuj: The Pride of India alongside Ajay Devgn and Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar opposite Arjun Kapoor.
