Neel Sethi gets a warm welcome with his family in Mumbai, India on Thursday night (March 24).
The 10-year-old actor stars in the upcoming The Jungle Book and is promoting the live-action tale in the country, which is based on Rudyard Kipling’s novel.
“I have heard so many stories about the jungles of India from my maternal grandparents who live here,” Neel said about his visit. “I am so excited to be visiting my homeland once again.”
He added, “When my parents heard that I got the part to play Mowgli, they were so excited because the stories are based in India.”
