The live-action version promises to cherish the musical spirit with re-imagined tracks by superstar Beyoncé and Donald Glover. Zimmer has returned to compose the score.

The Lion King Just Got Melodious – Armaan Malik & Sunidhi Chauhan To Sing The Hindi Tracks!

Sunidhi and Armaan will lend their musical touch to the Hindi soundtrack of the film. Armaan will sing “Hakuna matata” and also a duet with Sunidhi.

“While watching the original film, I have drifted with emotions — laughed and cried. So, to be a part of this venture was not only exciting, but something extremely close to my heart.


“I have beautiful memories of listening to the tracks of ‘Lion King‘, especially one track – “Can you feel the love tonight” — which I have listened to on repeat mode on my long drives, on rainy nights of Mumbai,” Sunidhi said in a statement.

“When you are a part of something great that already exists, you need to be closer to the original creation, not distort it, rather leave your own little touch. I have tried my best to justify the songs and the extraordinarily done visuals. The expressions of Simba, Nala, were so prolific, immaculate, that I knew I was in for something really interesting,” she added.

To this, Armaan added: “‘Lion King’ is literally my favourite Disney film of all time! I usually never asked for many gifts from my parents when I was a child but I clearly remember telling my dad that I wanted to buy the whole DVD collection of ‘Lion King’ and he immediately bought it for me.

“It’s such a fond memory that is still so clearly etched in my mind! I tried singing it the same way I felt when I first heard them back when I was a kid. I wanted to keep that same innocence intact, yet do some cool western inflections in my vocal delivery that could enhance the song. I think they have come out great and can’t wait for the fans to hear them!”

The Jungle Book” fame director Jon Favreau has re-imagined the world of Disney’s classic to bring alive a live-action film. He has stayed true to the classic story of Simba and used pioneering and game changing photo-real technology, using cutting-edge tools to make the musical drama come alive on the big screen.

The film will release in India on July 19 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
