A popular children's film in Tamil "Magic, Magic" is all set to be screened in China.
It is being dubbed in Chinese language here, and some film critics say it would be the first Indian movie to be shown in China after Raj Kapoor's immortal "Awara".
"Magic, Magic" was originally made by Navodaya Studio a year and a half ago. The Hindi version, "Chota Jadugar", was released last year.
This is a 3-D film, like Navodaya's first 3-D production, "My Dear Kuttichaathan", which won several laurels and continues for over a decade to regale millions of children with the story of a little Satan.
The China Film Corp. has secured the rights for dubbing "Magic, Magic".
The music for the film has been set by popular playback singer S.P. Balasubramaniam.
The story revolves around Suraj Balajee, a boy who lives with his magician grandfather. He moves to the US but finds himself a misfit and runs away.
The Chinese film body approached Navodaya for the film through an Internet search, studio spokesperson Vinod said.
The Chinese version of "Magic Magic" will be released during summer vacations in China, the film's director producer Jose Punnoose said.
"We hope this will pave the way for more Indian films getting into China," said Vinod.
