It’s not short of a casting coup to bring together some of the best and most talented Hindi film actors to a common place. Disney India has managed to rope in not one but five voices: Priyanka Chopra, Irrfan, Nana Patekar, Om Puri and Shefali Shah to lend their voice for the Hindi version of its most-anticipated live-action epic release, The Jungle Book.
Disney’s The Jungle Book is one of the most-anticipated films of recent times. It is directed by ‘Iron Man’ fame director, Jon Favreau, and inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s adventure stories based in India and Disney’s animated version.
The Indian audience will get to watch The Jungle Book on April 8, a week before US release, as the adventure stories of Mowgli, Bagheera, Baloo and Shere Khan have been significant during the audience’s growing up years.
