Junglee- this one finally for the kids!

Junglee Pictures’ next has seemed to fill in an age old gap of a much needed film especially made for kids.

Kids have booked first appointment for their summer vacation with Junglee, a Vidyut Jammwal starrer family action film which will see hearty combination of high octane action and enduring friendship shared by man and the wild.

Junglee’s story revolves around Vidyut Jammwal’s character – a vet, who on his homecoming to his father’s elephant reserve, encounters and fights an international poachers racket.

Audience will get to see real animals showcase their playful side in the film- first time in almost four decades. Shot with real elephants, Vidyut’s character has a parallel lead in a magnificent tusker named Bhola. Not just the tale of these two doting friends, the film has never seen before action sequences with an interesting mix of ancient martial art of Kalaripayattu and animal movement.

The trailer of the film released to an overwhelming response. Audience members took to social media calling this film a must have theatre experience for their kids. Some touted Vidyut Jammwal as Jungle’s superhero while others called him India’s answer to the Tarzan.

Trade pundits like Taran Adarsh add “(Junglee) seems like an adventure that should appeal to kids and families… also gives an idea of the awesome relationship between human and elephants”.

Sharing his excitement, Komal Nahta says-“The trailer of Junglee is just too lovely. I had goosebumps while watching it and I’m sure the film has many claptrap moments. For audiences of two generations, it will be a novel film because it’s after around four decades that a mainstream film about man-animal bonding is releasing.”

Predicting good run at the box office, Amul Mohan adds – “Junglee trailer has all the ingredients to be a crowd favorite.. animals, action and adventure what’s there not to like in it!”

Produced by Vineet Jain and co-produced by Priti Shahani, Junglee will hit the theatres on April 5th.

Over the course of shooting Chuck Russell’s Junglee, Vidyut Jammwal learnt many lessons from the mahouts. The actor trained with the elephant whisperer and the mahout to communicate and interact with elephants. The experience got him closer to the nature and helped him understand the gravity of the situation and the fleeting pace at which these mammoths are heading towards extinction.

World Elephant Day is an annual global event celebrated across the world on August 12, dedicated to the preservation and protection of elephants. It’s meant to create awareness about the plight of elephants and to share knowledge and positive solutions for the better care and management of captive and wild elephant.

The makers of the film also released a special video today, giving us a glimpse of the wonderful camaradarie Vidyut shared with the elephants.

Junglee is a family action adventure film which revolves around the unique friendship between a man and elephant. Directed by Hollywood Filmmaker Chuck Russell and produced by Junglee Pictures, the film is set to release on 5th of April, 2019.

Vidyut Jammwal brings global recognition to Kalaripayattu

Looper, a highly coveted platform in the US has recently released a list of top martial artists across the globe and Vidyut Jammwal is the only Indian to have made it to this prestigious list.

Speaking on the achievement, Jammwal says- “This is indeed an honour. Recognition like this inspires me to work harder and this moment makes me feel like a proud Indian”.

Jammwal whose dream has been to bring “Kalaripayattu” to the world seems to be succeeding and has given Indians another reason to celebrate.

Vidyut Jammwal has recently finished shooting for his upcoming family adventure film – “Junglee”- with the renowned film maker Chuck Russell (director of The Mask, Scorpion King and The Eraser).

Chuck Russell appreciated Jammwal saying- “It’s great to see Vidyut being noted as the rising star in action films across the world. He has a rare combination of cinematic charm and killer moves that will make him unstoppable after this film. What really distinguishes Vidyut is his deep knowledge of the martial art “Kalaripayattu” and his understanding of its philosophy to not only protect & fight, but also use it to heal. I had the pleasure of creating his role in Junglee to play his style of action supporting a positive message. I can’t wait for audiences to see it on the big screen.”

Speaking about appreciation he received from Chuck Russell, Jammwal adds- “Chuck’s kind words are icing on the cake. Working with him on Junglee was like a dream come true. He pushed me to extract one of my best performances so far.”

Other martial artists in the list include Ilram Choi, Scott Adkins, Marko Zaror, Lateef Crowder, Wu Jing and Johnny Nguyen.
