Vidyut Jammwal, who got a chance to closely encounter the giant mammoths for his upcoming film 'Junglee', took to Twitter to urge to the audience to protect the endangered species on the occasion of 'World Elephant Day'.
Over the course of shooting Chuck Russell's Junglee, Vidyut Jammwal learnt many lessons from the mahouts. The actor trained with the elephant whisperer and the mahout to communicate and interact with elephants. The experience got him closer to the nature and helped him understand the gravity of the situation and the fleeting pace at which these mammoths are heading towards extinction.
World Elephant Day is an annual global event celebrated across the world on August 12, dedicated to the preservation and protection of elephants. It's meant to create awareness about the plight of elephants and to share knowledge and positive solutions for the better care and management of captive and wild elephant.
The makers of the film also released a special video today, giving us a glimpse of the wonderful camaradarie Vidyut shared with the elephants.
Junglee is a family action adventure film which revolves around the unique friendship between a man and elephant. Directed by Hollywood Filmmaker Chuck Russell and produced by Junglee Pictures, the film is set to release on 5th of April, 2019.
