A Sher Khan inspired by Psy’s Gangnam to do his own ‘tiger style’ antics, a rapping Bagheera and a Mowgli cheered on by a thousand school kids — such was the scene at Siri Fort Auditorium on Wednesday morning, as The Jungle Jive opened to a full house.  

The event, organised by Fever Entertainment in association with Just Because its Children, witnessed students from 20 schools in the Capital turn up in full strength, undeterred by the rain gods. An adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, the international musical gala is being showcased for the first time in India. “The response from the first two days has been fabulous. Being a long weekend, we are sure that the next two days will see better response ... we’ve received some great feedback,” says Harshad Jain, business head, radio and entertainment, HT Media.

The 80-minute show, brimming with colourful costumes and special effects, had everyone enthralled. Mowgli and his gang of friends, Baloo, Bagheera and Colonel Hathi, struck a chord with the young audience, who watched in awe. On till August 11, the campaign aims at educating as well as entertaining kids in the city.
