After Lalu dolls, Lalu toons set to tickle you


Patna: Union Railways Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav has carved out a niche for himself in popular culture again.
After Lalu dolls took the markets by storm, now it's the animation industry where Lalu has entered as a cartoon character.
Now, cartoonists in Bihar are using his distinctive personality to make a Lalu animation film.
The first clip is ready for the market launch and Pawan the brain behind it is confident his character will steal the show.
Pawan says, "Jaisa Tom and Jerry hai, Mogli hai, waise hi lalu ka character introduce kiye hai. (Just like there is Tom and Jerry, Mogli, Lalu is going to be introduced)."
His three-member team worked for 6 months to make this happen. While pawan, a cartoonist by profession managed the animation part, his friend Shashi matched lalu's voice with ease.
Shashi says, "Meri awaaz ka isse acha upyog nahi ho sakta tha" (I couldn’t have utilized my voice any better).
Interestingly, this animation project has Lalu's prior approval and consent. Rather Lalu is keen that his animation movie should hit the market before the general elections.
Pawan says, "Lalu jee khhush hue, bole isko jaldi jaldi launch karo market main (Lalu was glad to know about the project and has asked to launch it at the earliest).”
The animation team is now looking for some sponsors to take this project forward.
Pawan says, "Thora problem hai, koi helping hand chahiye, isko age badhane ke liye (There is a problem, we need a helping hand to get this project started".
After adorning the toy market, Lalu is again hoping to impress kids and enter every household through his animation movies.
