Lea Michele Will Voice a Role in an Animated Bollywood Musical

Lea Michele is nearing a deal to voice one of the lead roles of an upcoming Dreamworks Animations musical movie called Bollywood Superstar Monkey, according to The Wrap.

Here is the synopsis of the film, which follows monkey brothers Raj and Deepu: “When Raj accidentally releases the ten-headed demon king Ravana from his enchanted sleep, the demon kidnaps Bollywood superstar Chandani. The unlikely sibling heroes then team up with Chandani’s pet monkey Pinki and embark on a thrilling journey to rescue Chandani, save their city and defeat Ravana.”

Lea will be voicing the role of Pinki while Bad Words actor Rohan Chand is close to a deal for the role of Deepu.

The music for the film will be composed by Slumdog Millionaire‘s A.R. Rahman while the lyrics will be written by Wicked‘s Stephen Schwartz. The movie will be directed by Kevin Lima, who previously did Enchanted and Tarzan for Disney.
