Mr. Incredible goes to school

WHAT IS common to Shah Rukh Khan and superhero, Mr. Incredible? Those of you who know the answer probably have tickets for the first day first show of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation's yet-to-be-released movie The Incredibles.

Students from Vidyodaya, SBOA and Adarsh Vidyalaya have already had a sneak peek into the animated action adventure, what with the event management company, Events, trying to drum up excitement over the last few weeks.

On Monday, students of class VII and VIII Padma Seshadri Bala Bhavan, T. Nagar, were the chosen ones. They fielded some "fun" questions on the film, after watching a short trailer. Prizes included free movie tickets and the honorary title `Mr. Incredible'. Mr. Incredible, a former superhero, is trying to lead a normal, anonymous life with his wife Helen (formerly Elastigirl) and their three children Violet, Dash, and Jack Jack. What brings him out of enforced retirement? Find out on December 17 when the film hits the screens in India. And the answer to the Khan-connection question: The Bollywood star lends voice for Mr. Lajawab while his son Aryan dubs for Dash as Tez. The Hindi version will be called Hum Hai Lajawab.
