Neel Sethi Sings 'Bare Necessities' With 'The Jungle Book' Co-Star Bill Murray

Neel Sethi and Bill Murray belt out “The Bare Necessities” during their appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in Hollywood on Thursday night (March 31).

The 12-year-old actor and his 65-year-old Jungle Book co-star were quick to say that they didn’t rehearse this at all before singing.

Neel is also featured on the cover of Parade magazine with other co-stars Lupita Nyong’o, Idris Elba and Scarlett Johansson

“At first, I didn’t know the science behind everything and how it all worked, but now I do. There was a lot of makeup—that part took an hour and a half a day!” Neel explained in the issue.

He also opened up about being the only live actor in the movie, “It feels pretty cool. I know this doesn’t happen that often, but when it does people think it’s pretty cool. People say the animals are cool and ask if they’re real. They ask so many questions because they know there’s no one else in the movie they can ask!”
