Netflix has roped in Bollywood biggies, Abhishek Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit, Kareena Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff for their original film, Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle which is hitting the streaming service on 7 December.

Bachchan, in an interview with Mid-day, opened up about choosing to play Bagheera.

"I wanted to do the film for Aaradhya. When I told her that I'm playing Bagheera, she was thrilled. She has not seen all our films; she loves to read and is busy with her books. But I am keen to show her this movie," he says. Joyous that his seven-year-old child has inherited his love for the Rudyard Kipling classic, he adds, "I have grown up on The Jungle Book, and now my daughter is also a part of it," said Abhishek Bachchan.
