Remember Tarzan? An orphan who was born and bought up by giant, yet gentle, gorillas in the African wilderness? We grew up watching his heart-warming bond with all the wild animals and his jungle antics - it shall always hold a special place in our hearts. Well, Vidyut Jammwal’s Junglee, which has been helmed by The Mask and Eraser's Chuck Russell, is on similar lines. The trailer of Junglee has made its way to the internet on Wednesday and guys, it’s all things action and love!
It showcases the journey of Vidyut Jammwal (Raj), who grows up amid trees and woods and is friends with an elephant named Bhola. The two of them have been through thick and thin since they were kids and are certainly inseparable. But here’s the twist - as soon as the two grow up, Bhola comes under the radar of a group of ruthless poachers (led by Atul Kulkarni), who are eyeing his majestic tusk. For the staunch animal lover and Bhola’s best friend that Raj is, it would be interesting to see how these hunters get their hands on what they want. Apart from their unique friendship, Vidyut’s well-sculpted body and his daredevil stunts were the highlights of this power-packed trailer.
Junglee also stars Akshay Oberoi, Pooja Sawant, Asha Bhat and Atul Kulkarni. This Chuck Russell directorial will hit the big screens on April 5, 2019.
