“The animation levels of India has not been the best so far. Although if you see Punjabi cinema Chaar Sahibzaade, that has done tremendous business,” he added.
The 31-year-old star thinks that nobody has been able to “pull off that first big one that leads to many more”. “India anyway has a herd mentality... It’s just the matter of getting the first one right,” he added. Budget is also a reason why producers hesitate to invest in such ventures, says the Ki & Ka star.
Talking about his character from the film, which is slated to release on July 15, Arjun said “I really enjoyed (it). It is an amazing way to learn for an actor because you don’t have your face, the only tool you have is your voice and you can push and find the rhythm that has already been set for you by the original voice,” the Aurangzeb star said.
He was asked to be “fully massy” in the film because the character Buck “is fully out there, he is larger than life, loud and quirky”. Arjun had to speak in various languages as also different characters.
