But another star-studded cast also joined the project to voice the same character for the Tamil version.
Disney India has informed via press release that South Indian actor, Shruti Hassan will voice as Elsa in Tamil for Frozen 2. Moreover, she would also be singing three songs in the movie. So far, Disney has only revealed 'Into the Unknown' track from the movie.
Shruti expressed her excitement to be part of the much-loved Disney franchise in a statement saying:
"I absolutely adore the movie Frozen, and the bond shown between sisters Elsa and Anna is purely heartwarming. Being the elder sister, I completely resonate with Elsa's feelings towards Anna, and will do the same for my sister (actress Akshara Haasan). Elsa is every girl's role model, and I am elated to lend my voice and get the opportunity to sing for Elsa's character in Tamil. In addition to their gripping and engaging stories, songs in such animated movies hold a very special place in the hearts of fans, and (I) look forward to present the sequel to my fans and my Tamil audiences."
The actress announced the news on social media with a Frozen 2 poster featuring herself. You can check it out below. The original version of Frozen 2 sees the return of Kristen Bell voice as Elsa.
