Environmentalist activist and conservationist Bittu Saigal has hopped on board to support Nikhil Advani's environmentally-conscious animation film Delhi Safari
. The long-delayed English-Hindi film with animals speaking in the voices of an assortment of big stars from Hollywood including Vanessa Williams, Jason Alexander and Jane Lynch, British doyen Cary Elwes and American stand-up comedian Brad Garrett to dub for the animals in the English version and Suniel Shetty, Boman Irani, Urmila Matondkar, Ayesha Takia, Akshaye Khanna and Sweeni Khare for the Hindi version, is about a bunch of animals heading to Delhi to complain to the prime minister about the destruction of their habitat.
Bittu Sahgal was shown the film and he readily agreed to lend his presence in promoting and marketing an animation film that propagates environmental issues.
Says a source close to the project, "Sahgal's clout as India's most prominent environmentalist would be used to advantage to promote Delhi Safari globally as Bollywood's first eco-friendly animation film."
Nikhil Advani confirms Bittu Sahgal's participation in promoting Delhi Safari. "Yes, he is on board. He is our chief consultant."
