The jovial Baloo will be voiced by Anil Kapoor and  the enigmatic Kaa by Kareena Kapoor.

While  Dixit will take the mic for Nisha.

“You can’t tell this story to the world without acknowledging that this character is from India, and Rudyard Kipling (the writer of Mowgli) was from India,” said Serkis. “He was a child of British India and had a particular set of values. And you have to reinterpret the values and underpin the story in that manner.”

The actors to voice the live action characters for the English version of the film include Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Naomie Harris and Rohan Chand.
