When asked if he wanted to dub for any other character from the animated film, Irrfan said, “The makers of The Jungle Book had first offered me to dub for Sher Khan, but I asked them to make me watch the film first. I saw the rough cut and decided that I will dub for Baloo because its character was like Irrfan Khan on steroids.”

“I loved Baloo’s character and I also have a strange relationship with kids. Nothing excites me the way kids do. I just wanted to entertain them,” added the Piku star.

The 49-year-old actor also revealed that he would love to do a film like Pirates of the Caribbean.
