The film features Anil Kapoor (Baloo), Kareena Kapoor Khan (Kaa), Abhishek Bachchan (Bagheera),  Jackie Shroff (Shere Khan) and Madhuri Dixit (Nisha).

Out of them, Anil Kapoor, who will voice the bear Baloo, Mowgli’s mentor, has made a quip on Twitter that he won’t need more makeup, specifically hair to play his part, because of his hairy past reputation.

A user tweeted jokingly on Tuesday that it was not necessary for Anil to wear makeup and shared some shirtless pics of the actor when he was young.  Anil excitingly exclaimed as a response to this tweet that was his exact reaction.

The Hindi dub version of the upcoming Netflix film is based on The Jungle Book written by Rudyard Kipling.  The original English had the voice casting of Christian Bale as Bagheera, director Andy Serkis as Baloo, Cate Blanchett (Kaa), and Benedict Cumberbatch (Shere Khan). It's reported that Serkis, Bale, Freida Pinto, Rohan Chand ( stars as Mowgli), will appear in India to take part in the film’s world premiere on November 25.

Previously, an adaptation helmed by Jon Favreau featured the voices of Irrfan Khan and Priyanka Chopra, achieved great commercial success in 2016.
