Priyanka Chopra’s husky voiceover as villainous snake Kaa in the Hindi version of The Jungle Book has earned her a lot of praise but the actor revealed she almost missed out on the part.
The 33-year-old Padma Shri awardee, who was busy shooting for her debut international TV series ‘Quantico’ in Montreal, said she managed to squeeze out time from her busy schedule to voice her favourite character from Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale.
“I was very excited to do The Jungle Book. I almost missed out the opportunity to voice it because of date issues. I was not able to do it because the film (Jungle Book) was about to release. I was in Montreal, shooting for ‘Quantico’ and that month was quite hectic for me as Baywatch also happened the same month,” said Priyanka.
