Members of the international and Indian cast of Netflix’s upcoming film, Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, walked the red carpet at its world premiere in Mumbai on Sunday. Actors Christian Bale, Freida Pinto, Rohan Chand and Andy Serkis were joined by the starry members of the Indian voice cast, including Abhishek Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit Nene.

Abhishek, who voices Bagheera in the Hindi version of the film, looked dapper in a blue suit-blue shirt combo. He’s also shaved off his beard, which had become a part of his look for a long time. His English counterpart, Bale, wore a black three-piece suit, and was accompanied by his wife, Sandra Blažić, who wore a green dress.

Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit, who voice Baloo the bear and Nisha, Mowgli’s adoptive wolf mother, twinned in blue. Madhuri took to her Instagram to share a picture of the two of them together. “As the legend goes we have always got each other’s back! Our mission to save Mowgli look good while doing so is accomplished I think! @anilskapoor. Walking the carpet with Baloo in blue!” she captioned the picture.

Anil reciprocated with a post of his own, which he captioned, “I guess we agreed upon safeguarding the Legend #Mowgli and wearing blue to the premiere or just a happy coincidence? With the radiant @madhuridixitnene a.k.a #Nisha.”

Anil was wearing a blue suit, which he paired with white sneakers, while Madhuri wore a blue dress. She was accompanied to the premiere by her husband, Sriram Nene.
