Freida Pinto said, “I play Mowgli’s adoptive mother, so I’m very, very excited about it. I read The Jungle Book and watched the TV series in India growing up, and for me, to finally be part of the film that reminds me so much of my childhood is just amazing.”

Talking about the Jungle Book Origins Film she also said, “It’s one of those films that I feel, no matter what age group you are, you’re going to enjoy that film, and I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve done something like that, because most of my films have not been good enough for children. A little too intense, so I’m very happy to finally be doing a film that can be watched by kids.”
