Mira, Royal Detective will be available on Disney+ Hotstar Premium starting 24th May 2020.
Freida Pinto, who has voiced the character of Queen Shanti said, “There will be many things you recognize if you are from India. Right from the care, attention and detail were taken to focus on the costume, food, a conversation about food, and words that are being used. At the end of the day, this is an international show, but the creators of the show have been so mindful as to not isolate those watching it in India who are growing up in this culture. So, it feels like there is a convergence of international appeal and the Indian story.”
She further added, “I think Queen Shanti and I have this one thing in common. We both like to lead, and I think while I was voicing the character of Queen Shanti, I did embody those leadership qualities. So, I feel the thing that I learned from her is to lead with grace and to come from a place of kindness”
Kal Penn is excited for the kids to watch the show, he says, “I hope that what kids learn the most from Mira, Royal Detective are these incredible inquisitive skills, these characters that are confident. I mean, Mira is incredibly confident and capable and what an incredible message that sends to young girls obviously but also to young boys who will watch the show and be inspired by her”
