Vidyut has spent time learning Kalaripayattu in Kerala, which reportedly helped him understand his character better. He had to communicate with various elephant whisperers to emotionally connect with the character on screen. "This particular relationship is built on understanding. You cannot command it." For the past 25 to 30 years, Bollywood has not come up with films specifically around animals, stated the actor and that was more reason why he has his hopes pinned on the film. "It’s the kind of film that I wanted to see when growing up,” he told Mirror.

Junglee is directed by Hollywood filmmaker Chuck Russell, who is known for his popular films The Mask & The Scorpion King. Produced by Junglee Pictures, the film is slated to release on 5 March.
