However, it’s taken the former beauty queen a while to let her Indian fans know what she’s been up to. She announced her involvement in Mumbai on August 20, ahead of the Indian premiere of the film on August 23.

She talked about how voicing the character in a cartoon is very different from the Bollywood dubbing that she is used to.

What’s more, she said she had decided from the very beginning that she would not do an Indian accent the way that it is portrayed in movies across the world but would instead use her own accent. Thank God for that!
