Bollywood actor Vidyut Jammwal is all set to star in American filmmaker Chuck Russell’s action-adventure thriller ‘Junglee’. The film based on elephant poaching and ivory smuggling has been locked for a release on 5th April 2019.
On the World Elephant Day, the makers decided to released a short video and a few stills of Vidyut and the elephants and we must say after seeing them we can’t wait to watch the movie.
While sharing the video and stills, the production house wrote, ” To all around the world, it’s our duty to care, conserve and protect their lives and habitat #WorldElephantDay @VidyutJammwal @JungleePictures #ChuckRussell #Junglee”
"Junglee" is about a unique relationship between man and elephants and was locked for release on Dussehra previously.
Vidyut has finished shooting for Junglee, about a unique relationship between a man and elephants.
Backed by Junglee Pictures, it is directed by Chuck Russell, who has helmed Hollywood films such as The Mask, Eraser and The Scorpion King.
Talking about Vidyut, Russell said, "It is 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 and 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."
To this, Vidyut said, "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."
The film is slated to release on 5 April, 2019.
