With her childhood memories attached to Rudyard Kipling’s timeless classic, actress Freida Pinto, who found popularity in the West post “Slumdog Millionaire”, is excited to be a part of “Jungle Book: Origins”. She says her life has come full circle with the Hollywood project.

Freida is voicing Mowgli’s adoptive mother in the Warner Brothers’ motion capture live-action adventure adaptation of “The Jungle Book”, based on the novel by Kipling. And the actress asserts that the film is worth the wait.

“It’s going to be a while for ‘Jungle Book…’. It will release in 2017. I am pretty excited about it because we all used to watch it on Doordarshan every Sunday. We loved watching it. Life kind of becomes full circle to participate in a project like that,” Freida told IANS over phone from Los Angeles.

Directed by Andy Serkis, who also gives voice to friendly bear Baloo, the cast includes names like Benedict Cumberbatch, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, and Indian-American child actor Rohan Chand as Mowgli.
