of Magic, the kiddie animation feature film inspired by the
original Mayabazaar (starring NTR) of 50 odd years ago, is going to
Cannes, the Mecca for world cinema. It will be screened at the
Cannes Film festival on May 17 in the Palais C section.
Vinod Surya of Sun Animatics has produced the full-length
animation feature film, directed by Singeetam Srinivasa Rao, 76,

director. The movie is co-produced by Shemaroo.

Mayabazaar was Ghatotkach, the son of Bhima. In the
animation flick, Ghatotkach is a jungle born baby who
grows to adulthood in the jungle and all the fun and adventure he
has on the way is chronicled in the 100-minute-long
will be released in Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada,
Malayalam and Bengali.
