Ever thought of Lion King and Amitabh Bachchan coming together in one film?

Come 26 August, and a new dimension would be added to Indian Cinema with the release of Bhaggmati - The Queen of Fortunes , the first Indian film which would see real life characters interacting with their animated colleagues.




Based on the love story of Prince Qutab Quli Shah of Golconda and local lass Bhaggmati, the film has "real characters talk, sing and dance with animated characters", says Ashish Kaul, the marketing and distribution head of the film being made by Zee Network.

The film directed by Major Ashok Kaul casts Hema Malini Tabu Milind Soman , besides a host of animated characters.

Tabu plays the role of a student of Archaeology who visits Golconda fort to undertake research on the lives of Qutab Quli Shah and Bhaggmati. In course of her stay there she meets Soman, who is a descendent of the Qutab Shahi dynasty.

"As she goes through her research, her interpretation of the findings about the lives of these characters find their expression through animation", says Kaul.

Made with a budget of Rs 5 crore, Bhaggmati also has song and dances picturised on animated characters. Vishal Bharadwaj of 'Maachis' fame has composed the music.

"The film has been made entirely with the help of Indian technology and expertise. The fact that 110 people worked tirelessly for over three years without any international technology is the USP of Bhaggmati", he says.
