He mentions,

The first time I had played the role years back and I wish to be young again. That time, the movie was released by NFDC and Ravi Malik asked me whether I would play a part in the movie and I Simply said yes, why not? Since, I did not have enough money that time, it did play a very important role. I was rewarded with some Rs 3000 to 5000. But this time, money wasn’t an issue, I just wanted to reminisce my good old days. I am happy about it.

Disney’s The Jungle Book is one of the most anticipated films of 2016. The Indian audience will be able to catch the film before the US on April 8.
