The 14-year-old star Rohan Chand of Netflix's "Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle" discussed how the film speaks out to young people who are "being pressured into being a different person", during its premiere in London on Tuesday. The film is an adaptation of the 1894 novel "The Jungle Book" written by Rudyard Kipling and follows the upbringing of Mowgli who was raised by a pack of wolves in the jungles of India. Mowgli is accepted by most of the animals in the jungle as one of their own but must also face his human origins. The World is One News, WION examines global issues with in-depth analysis.
