Priyanka Chopra, who is currently creating waves on foreign shores, will match her sexy voice to Scarlett Johannson's sensual rendition for ‘Kaa', the python. In the recent past Priyanka also lent her voice to the character Ishani in Disney's PLANEs and portrayed Alex Parrish IN ABC'S hit show ‘Quantico'.

Another Indian International actor, Irrfan, popular for his versatile roles in PIKU, LIFE IN A METRO, THE NAMESAKE, THE LUNCH BOX and THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN, will lend his voice to the friendly ‘bear Baloo', which is dubbed by Bill Murray in the international version.

Super talented Shefali Shah, riding high on the appreciation for the modern portrayal of a mother in DIL DHADAKNE DO, will dub for ‘Raksha', Lupita Nyong'o lent her voice to the wolf in the international version.

And veteran actor Om Puri, who has been often honored for his performances in India and abroad, will lend his voice to ‘Bagheera', the Black Panther, which is dubbed by legendary actor Ben Kingsley in the international version.

The Studio has also approached powerful performer Nana Patekar, who recently wowed critics and audience with his riveting performance in NATSAMRAT, to once again lend his voice to ‘Shere Khan', Idris Elba has lent his voice to the Bengal tiger in the international version. Back in the early 90s, Nana had dubbed for the fearsome tiger in the animated series – the ‘Jungle Book: The Adventures of Mowgli' – that was aired on Doordarshan.

“THE JUNGLE BOOK is so very special to India, and we want our audience enjoy Disney's all-new live-action adaptation. We wanted nothing but the best for the Hindi version of the film. We are so excited to have such veterans and A list actors come together to voice and bring alive these beloved characters making it like a hi scale Hindi film.” says Amrita Pandey, Vice-President - Studios, Disney India.

Disney's THE JUNGLE BOOK is one of the most-anticipated films of recent times. It is directed by IRON MAN fame director, Jon Favreau, and inspired by Rudy Kipling's adventure stories based in India and Disney's animated version. Jon Favreau's THE JUNGLE BOOK seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world.

The Indian audience will get to watch THE JUNGLE BOOK on April 8, a week before US release, as the adventure stories of Mowgli, Bagheera, Baloo and Shere Khan have been significant during the audience's growing up years.
