Shemaroo Entertainment’s Animation division adds one more feather on their cap with ‘Bal Ganesh’. All of 100 minutes, Bal Ganesh is a 3D animation film with 6 to 7 lilting songs. Eminent singers like Asha Bhonsle, Usha MangeshKar, Hariharan, Shankar Mahadevan and Kailash Kher have lent their voices to the songs of Bal Ganesh. The music director Shamir Tandon of ‘Page 3’, Corporate’ and ‘Asha & Friends’ fame, has done wonders with the tracks of this animated movie. Bal Ganesh, by debutant director Pankaj Sharma, is a film by Shemaroo Entertainment in association with Astute Media Vision. The movie is slated for release this Ganesh Chaturthi and for more information you can log on to www.balganesh.com.
Bal Ganesh is a fun-loving story of Ganesh-the elephant God – who is respected and loved- by all. His pranks and innocence as a child and his rise to the ranks of ‘Numero Uno God’ is what the movie entails. In a nutshell, Bal Ganesh relives Baby Ganesh’s childhood antics, spiced with foot-tapping music, delicious modaks and naughty mooshak (mouse).
Bal Ganesh has brought two sisters – Asha Bhonsle and Usha Mangeshkar – after 3 decades to sing together for the first time in an animated film. It was an emotional moment which they have enjoyed immensely and will cherish forever.
Smita Maroo, VP Animation Division, Shemaroo Entertainment shares her thought, ‘Bal Ganesh is special since Ganesh remains a child throughout and portrays his playfulness like that of all children. The film has been created to connect today’s generation to a popular God. The film not only meets the taste and overall cool quotient of today’s audiences, but also maintains the sanctity of the God. Bal Ganesh is an exclusive treat from Shemaroo Entertainment to audiences all over, this Ganesh Festival.
Shemaroo’s Animation Division is taking the India Animation eco-system to nest level with many projects in its pipeline such as ‘Ghatothkach- Master of Magic’. This was the first Indian Animated film to be promoted at the Cannes Film Festival.
