Mowgli has come and conquered in the most phenomenal way! Read on...
The Jungle Book's debutant Neel Sethi surely seems to have struck gold with Jon Favreau's film! His character Mowgli has been so loved by audience not just by critics but also by the audience that it clearly has put him on the map. After having worked (not physically but virtually) with actors like Ben Kingsley, Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong'o, Scarlett Johansson and Christopher Walken, he must be feeling quite proud of himself! But clearly, after meeting him, I'm convinced that he's not the kind to show off! The Jungle Book has created such a massive impact in India that already it has gained several accomplishments!
The film has already raked about 74 crores in its first 7 days (which is quite a big accomplishment for any Hollywood film) and it all set to earn more as it will now compete with Shah Rukh Khan's Fan! From the looks of how the film is garnering both good reviews and attention, I won't be surprised if it enters the 100 crore club within the next three days. Okay, maybe that's a little too much to ask for but a fan can only hope for the best when it comes to their favourite movie/actor, right? And box office is not the only place that the Jungle Book is winning. The makers have a lot of other reasons to celebrate so check out all their accomplishments of the first week in the comments section below!
# Biggest Day 1 for any Hollywood film in 2016!
