‘Mowgli’ has played a memorable part in the childhood of most of us. The fact that the character has been revisited many times like the worldwide blockbuster ‘The Junglebook’ in 2016 says it all about its popularity.  

And another Mowgli movie is set to freshen our memories of the much-loved jungle tale with ‘Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle’ set to hit Netflix next month. What makes this new venture interesting is the involvement of some big names, who’ve lent their voices to some of the characters. 

We have ‘Batman’ star Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Freida Pinto to name a few, turning into some of the characters through their voices for the English version. And there’s also a good line-up of Bollywood stars who have come on board for the Hindi version. Jackie Shroff, Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Anil Kapoor are the ones to voice the leads.
