Siddharth plays Simba in the Tamil version of The Lion King
By Bryan Durham - June 26, 2019
By now, you must be well aware of the cast of the Hindi version of The Lion King (Shah Rukh and son Aryan Khan, in case you were wondering). But Disney has now revealed the voice of Simba in the film’s Tamil version. And it is none other than the actor Siddharth.
Nostalgia washes over the actor. He says, “I can never forget the first time I saw The Lion King on screen as well as on stage. I had an equally unforgettable experience speaking and singing in Tamil as Simba in the spectacular new version of this timeless classic. I can’t wait to see my new avatar in the cinema with my audience.”
While Donald Glover voices Simba in the English version, Aryan Khan does it in the Hindi version while Sid does so in the Tamil one. Going by the continuous casting coups, one wonders who Disney will pick to voice the Telugu version: Vijay Deverakonda (Arjun Reddy), Sid again, Prabhas (Saaho, Bahubali) or someone else?
