Vidyut Jammwal, who was last seen in ‘Bullett Raja’, is gearing up for his next titled ‘Junglee’ to be directed by Rohan Sippy and apparently this film will have him dealing with animals. Vidyut will play the role of a vet who is on a mission to investigate a deadly poaching racket that took away his father. The film will have elephants as his friends.
While talking about the film, Rohan Sippy said, “I grew up before television arrived on the scene, so the biggest treat for my friends and me was when my dad (Ramesh Sippy) would bring a projector home and screen ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ for us. That is one film I watched on every birthday for at least three-four years. And that’s what triggered off the idea of ‘Junglee’.”
Vidyut too seems to be damn excited for this flick. He was quoted saying, “I am a huge animal lover and this is a great action thriller,” he said, adding that since he heard the narration, he has been working with the team to create a new kind of action that no one in the world has seen yet.”
The shooting of the same will begin next year.
