"The movie is the first of its kind in India," said Nikhil Advani. "It has a strong environmental theme; cutting edge 3D animation packaged in Bollywood tamasha and has been created for the global audience."
DELHI SAFARI was chosen for the 'official selection' section at the Annecy Film Festival 2012 in France. Earlier, DELHI SAFARI had won the Best Feature Film (theatrical) award at FICCI FRAMES 2012. It's the story of five animals who journey to Delhi to protest in front of the parliament when their forest is encroached upon by builders.
"The Annecy Film festival is the most prestigious global festival for the animation industry and the selection of DELHI SAFARI signifies the coming of age of the Indian animation and its ability to create a truly international film with a universally enjoyable story and world class animation," said Aditya Nath Jha, CEO of Krayon Pictures.
Krayon Pictures is a 3D animation studio in Pune that has been set up to create original stories for the global market. DELHI SAFARI is its first film. The English version of the film features voices by Jason Alexander, Brad Garret, Vanessa Williams, Jane Lynch, Christopher Lloyd and Cary Elwiss. The film has already been sold in many international territories.
