There were rumours that director Pavan Kumar of 'Lucia' fame would be dubbing the 'The Jungle Book' to Kannada in the coming days. But Pavan Kumar has rubbished such rumours saying that he is busy with his film and doesn't have time for other work.
This is what Pavan has said about the dubbing issue in his Facebook page:
Ya.. so.. media thinks I am acquiring the dubbing rights. NOPE... I AM NOT.
In principle i.d want to... but i am very busy with my film.. hence i will assist the crowd.. the audience in doing it.. but cant spearhead the project.
I am still following up with Disney.. but I.d want someone or a group to come fwd n do the work. I shall be there to help through.
