It took Andy four years to make 'Mowgli'
During an appearance on 'This Morning', Andy said, "It's much closer to the tone of Rudyard Kipling's book and it takes into account the world that Kipling was living in.. It's a live-action movie so we shot on location." "It took almost four years to make. We wanted to put some space between us and Jon Favreau's Disney film," he added.
'Mowgli' will hit the screens in October
The film, set in the 19th century colonial India, follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli, who is raised by a pack of wolves in a jungle. It stars Rohan Chand in the titular role.
