Mumbai, India (December 21, 2023): Today anime fans in Mumbai witnessed an exhilarating exclusive premiere of Solo Leveling, a highly anticipated anime series set to release globally on 6th January 2024 on Crunchyroll. The Hindi dub – as well as the subtitle – will also be available to stream simultaneously.
The screening of this epic adventure, adapted from the acclaimed Korean WEBTOON sensation, was attended by over 220 fans and accompanied by renowned actor Ali Fazal who has also lent his Hindi voice to a character, Song Chiyul, in the series.
“I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to provide the Hindi dub for Solo Leveling. I aspire to forge deeper connections with the world of anime, particularly in the realms of artistic creation and exploration of different facets of our world.
Preparing for the Hindi dub role posed both a challenge and a source of immense excitement. Delving into the character’s backstory was crucial for me to comprehend the nuances of the role and determine the appropriate voice texture. Portraying Song Chiyul, a senior character, required a careful blend of my voice. This was a unique experience that fueled my curiosity to delve deeper into the craft.
Collaborating with Crunchyroll and immersing myself in the anime world has been a fresh and thrilling experience for me.” – Ali Fazal said during the premiere event.
About Solo Leveling
Over a decade has passed since a pathway called a “gate” which connects this world and another dimension suddenly appeared, and people with superhuman powers called “hunters” have been awakened. Hunters use their superhuman powers to conquer dungeons inside the gates to make a living, and Sung Jinwoo, a hunter of the lowest rank, is considered the Weakest Hunter of All Mankind. One day, he encounters a double dungeon, a high-level dungeon hidden inside a low-level one. In front of a severely wounded Jinwoo, a mysterious quest window pops up. On the verge of death, Jinwoo decides to take on the quest, which makes him the only person who can level up.
The anime series Solo Leveling is adapted from the best-selling Korean web novel written by Chugong, which was later adapted into a webtoon and manhwa in 2018, with illustrations by DUBU.
