Actor Vidyut Jammwal‘s latest film Junglee has opened well at the Box Office. The film is a jungle drama and features Vidyut in the role of a saviour, the one who protects a forest from poachers. The film also shows a beautiful relationship between an elephant and his master. Junglee, which was released on March 29, has minted Rs 3.35 crore on its opening day. The collections have emerged at par with the trade expectations.
Junglee is directed by American filmmaker Chuck Russell. He is known to have helmed successful films like The Mask and The Scorpion King in Hollywood. With Junglee, the director has ventured into India and it seems quite a beneficial bet considering Junglee has received positive reviews across the country. It has especially been liked by the kids. The film’s larger-than-life visuals and colourful appeal have impressed the audience. It also features Pooja Sawant and Asha Bhat. Watch Junglee’s trailer here:
Vidyut, who’s known to perform some good action on-screen, can be seen doing the same in Junglee as well. With a well-sculpted body and fiery expressions on the face, the man seems all ready to destroy everything that comes in between him and his beloved animals.
Earlier, talking about the idea of the film and catering to the pan-India audience, director Chuk Russell told DNA, “Ever since The Mask did so well with the global audiences, it gave me the confidence and passion to tell universal stories. Also, I was always a bit jealous of filmmakers here because they can throw a song and dance whenever they please and that’s so entertaining. I was really looking forward to doing that in this project. Right from the screenplay level and all the way through filming, the producers pushed for a greater level of emotion even though it’s an action movie. As it turns out, Junglee is the most emotional action film I’ve ever made.”
