"Yes AB Corp is making a film with Toonz Animation India,” confirms Amitabh Bachchan reacting to reports that claim his production house is collaborating with Kerala-based Toonz Animation India and Turner International. The three-film deal includes a superhero fantasy, tentatively titled 1+1+0 Twinergy, for which Bachchan will be lending his voice.
The 90-minute 3D movie apparently revolves around twin princes who are being developed keeping the superstar’s personality in mind, and a power-hungry uncle. They belong to another planet but connect with and help save Earth.
Toonz Animation’s cartoon television productions include The Adventures Of Tenali Raman and Hanuman Returns. The company is also working on two other 3D animated features, Gatturo and a Santa Claus movie.
Bachchan refuses to put a deadline or affix a release date for these movies, pointing out that the process of making them is long and tedious. “It will be a while before the film materialises. Let’s see what animation has in store for India. There have been several attempts in the past,” he says.
