While shooting for Junglee, Vidyut Jammwal spent most of his time forging a deep bond of trust with his new co-stars, which are the adorable therapy elephants. When he learnt from the mahouts that the mighty tuskers responded to humans emotionally and were very sensitive to their energies, he trained with an elephant whisperer and the mahout to communicate and interact with elephants, and, as a result, he spent all his free time with the Tusker- Jai and the female elephant Oon to understand their personalities better.

Most of the sequences with the elephants were planned meticulously, however, the day was always dictated by the majestic beast and his/her mood. The director and Vidyut soon accepted that each scene with the beasts would likely have its own rhythm and emotional quotient. The elephants added more magic than imagined.
However, despite the training, elephants are considered to be one of the most dangerous animals to work closely with because of their size and strength. This was the principle reason that Vidyut had spent time with the mahouts and the beasts- to avoid any risks during the shoot.
Directed by Hollywood Filmmaker Chuck Russell and produced by Junglee Pictures, the family action-adventure film is set to release on 19th October 2018.
