Los Angeles, April 1 (IANS) Indian-American child actor Neel Sethi, who plays Mowgli in “The Jungle Book”, will make an appearance on American late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” along with Bill Murray, who gives the voice to the character Baloo the bear in the forthcoming Disney’s adventure fantasy film.

Kimmel took to Twitter to make the announcement.

“Tonight on Kimmel… Bill Murray, Neel Sethi… ‘The Jungle Book’,” Kimmel wrote on Friday.

“The Jungle Book” showcases Mowgli’s journey of self-discovery when he is forced to abandon his home in the forest. It is supported by voiceovers of Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong’o, Scarlett Johansson and Christopher Walken.

The film, which will release in India on April 8, a week before it releases in the US, promises to be an advanced version of the eponymous 1967 animated film, and brings the story of Rudyard Kipling’s 1864 timeless classic back on the big screen.
