Amitabh Bachchan is doing the voiceover for the Hindi version of Luc Jacquet's March Of The Penguins chronicling the tough journey of displaced penguins from Antarctica.
March Of The Penguins is one of the highest grossers among documentaries that created a stir the world over.
American actor Morgan Freeman provided the voiceover for this remarkable film in English.
In India, the film will be released through Sunil Doshi's entertainment company, Handmade Films.
"Yes, Sunil Doshi has acquired the Indian rights of this beautiful documentary film. And I have indeed agreed to do the commentary March Of The Penguins is a film I'd be very happy to be part of. And I am aware Morgan Freeman has done it earlier," Bachchan told IANS.
Generally, films that have Amitabh's voice on the soundtrack like Lagaan and "Parineeta" fair well at the box office.
"Ah, but you are mentioning the successful ones. There are so many films where I have done voiceovers which haven't done well. I am sure 'March Of The Penguins' will have a deep impact on the Indian audiences. It's a film that has created a stir all over the world."
