That’s right! Bollywood’s Sonakshi Sinha will be lending her voice to the Hollywood flick, Rio 2. The English version of the film will be released on April 11th and we hear Imran Khan will also be joining the actress for the project.

Fox’s Rio 2 in 3D, is said to be dubbed in multiple languages. Although Bollywood has lent their voices to Hollywood in the past, this will be on a much greater scale, according to reports. The movie will feature the return of Blu, Jewel and their three kids, who leave their boring life searching for adventure in the Amazon rainforest.

There’s a scene where Jewel is dancing and singing so they made me sing a few lines as well! It was such a new experience, I would have even loved to sing more, but unfortunately I am only a bathroom singer.

India’s making it official! Finally, a museum dedicated to Indian cinema which will trace all the way back to its black and white days. According to reports, the museum took about seven years to wrap up and is the first of its kind.

The goal is to showcase Bollywood memorabilia, along with original artifacts from movie sets, among other film-making tools. The whole idea is to celebrate Bollywood and the various films made over the last century.

Excited about the grand opening, curator Amrit Gangar had this to say, “It’s about time India had its own film museum. We have archives, but not a museum and today a museum can become vibrant because of technology and interactivity.”

Bollywood tours are also in the making. India has learned they can continue to build up the hype and profit off of tourists by running their own celebrity tours, much similar to Tinseltowns.

Exciting!

The museum is set to launch in Mumbai, India in just a few weeks.
