Ghattu Speaks - The Picturization of Songs

There’s something really interesting that I want to tell all of you… All of you have liked the songs of my movie. And the other day, one little friend told me that he loved the way I have danced in the song ‘Anglik Banglik’. Do you want to know the secret story behind the awesome choreography?

All the songs have been choreographed live by the choreographers. I mean, just like the way you would watch a dance in an actual live-action movie. In this way, the exact emotions, expressions and dance movements were captured. This was then passed on to the animators, and they used it as their reference while animating the songs. So, whether it is the cool steps in ‘Anglik Banglik’ or the funny dance sequence in ‘Aana Aaja Na’, all of them have been picturized in this way!

Ghattu Speaks - I’m the Brand Ambassador of PETA

All of you must have heard of PETA, right? The full-form of PETA is People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. PETA has their upcoming campaign ‘Save the Elephant’. And guess who the brand ambassador of that campaign is… It’s me!!

On the day of my film’s audio launch, which happened at PVR, Juhu, the kids of the popular TV Show ‘Chak De Bachche’ were also present. They unveiled my standee. And I was sooo excited!! I was really happy when I was announced the Brand Ambassador of the ‘Save the Elephant’ campaign. After all, Gajju is my best friend! And I will now want the support of all of you to make sure that elephants are protected! Aren’t they such wonderful animals?!

Ghatothkach - the Maya Bazaar episode

Mahabharata is one of the most enchanting and enthralling tales ever told. Due to its vastness, there are several characters and incidents of the epic that are not very well known to all. One such example is the story of Ghatothkach.

When one is asked about Ghatothkach, other than him being the Pandava brother Bheema’s son and part of the mighty war, his story remains untold. However, there are several interesting events that took place in the life of Ghatothkach as a kid as well as an adult, which would mesmerize people of all age-groups.

The entire episode is better known as Maya Bazaar, which is filled with magic, romance, fun, thrill and adventure. The protagonist of the series of incidents in Maya Bazaar is none other than Ghatothkach, fondly called Ghattu - son of Hidimba and Bheema. His best friend is a baby elephant Gajju, and their journey of fun and adventure is thoroughly enjoyable!
