The director of the action-adventure thriller Chuck Russell is best known for his work in Hollywood films like 'Eraser', 'The Mask', 'The Scorpion King' and 'A Nightmare' on 'Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors'. Earlier, talking about 'Junglee' the American filmmaker reportedly said that he is certainly feeling a fair amount of pressure while making the film since it is a representation of India. Chuck Russell further went on to add that he has been to India four times in the past five years and has wanted to tell stories with an international reach for a very long time. Russell also revealed that the international success of his directorial 'The Mask' starring Jim Carrey was proof that a mix of the action and comedy genre could cross boundaries. Further, in praise of Vidyut, the filmmaker reportedly said that when he had two scripts set in India in the making, he was keen on exploring new talent and was floored by the actor's skill and the fact that he blended perfectly well with the filmmaker's style. Russell promises that they have taken Vidyut's acting prowess to another level in 'Junglee'.
