The trailer of Netflix's Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle was unveiled at the Yashraj Studios in Mumbai on Sunday with filmmaker Andy Serkis and Christian Bale in attendance at the launch. Several of our Bollywood actors who will be the voices of the characters for the Hindi version of the film, were also present at the trailer launch event. When Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is giving the voice for Kaa, was asked whether she would show the movie to her toddler Taimur Ali Khan, she replied that Taimur was just two years old "so not right now". We agree with Bebo on the fact that it is too early to show him the movies.

The film which is directed by Andy Serkis, will begin streaming on Netflix in December this year and has Bollywood actors dubbing for the Indian version of the movie. Abhishek Bachchan is the voice for Bagheera, Anil Kapoor for Baloo and as mentioned earlier Kareena will be heard as Kaa. Madhuri Dixit Nene will be the voice for Nisha while actor Jackie Shroff will lend his voice to Sher Khan. Freida Pinto, who dubbed for Messua in the English version, will dub for the same character in the Hindi version as well.

Talkign about the same, Freida Pinto had told IANS, "Beautiful part about 'Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle' is that it is an ode to India. I remember Andy telling me before I left for South Africa that he wanted me to do my parts in Hindi and wanted to attempt it and go down that route. It is always a pleasure working with Andy (Serkis) and I hope for many more. When Andy and I worked together for the first time in the 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes', it was the fourth film of my career."

Mowgli: The Jungle Book is a fantasy adventure which follows the story of a boy, Mowgli, who is raised by a pack of wolves in the jungles of India.
