Mumbai: Academy Award-winning Hollywood actor Christian Bale, who is here for the world premiere of “Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle”, says India has got a world within itself and that it is important to bring the movie here. This is not Bale’s maiden visit to the country. He last visited India in 2011 for “The Dark Knight Rises”, parts of which were shot in Rajasthan.
This time he is here with his family. Bale, known for playing Batman, did the golden triangle round. “We travelled through Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and just arrived here in Mumbai. We have seen tiny-tiny parts of this incredible country which has got a world within itself. But it was so important for ‘Mowgli...’ to come here in India.”In “Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle”, Bale has voiced the character of protective but friendly panther Bagheera. The film, directed by actor Andy Serkis, explores the darker side of author Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale “The Jungle Book”, story of a boy in an Indian jungle, who grew up with animals. (IANS)
