Unlike Disney's family-friendly adaptation of 'Jungle Book' from director Jon Favreau in 2016, the first trailer of Andy Serkis directorial 'Mowgli' is here suggesting a dark and dangerous narrative of Rudyard Kipling's work.

"We were underdogs when we started, not a lot of people knew us, but 'Nach Baliye' gave us whatever audience we have today," Amruta told.
Expressing their joy after winning a cash prize of Rs.30 lakh and a Honda Jazz car, the couple who tied the knot earlier this year said they were happy that people thought it was a well deserved win.

"I would say all three 'jodis' were strong competitors, they all have their own USPs.
"Everyone from our dress designing department to our managers are so happy and they're considering it their own win and they feel it's well deserved, that feeling is really precious after winning," said Amruta to which Himmanshoo added: "I think honesty and goodness have won today."
Rashami Desai and Nandish Sandhu were the first runner ups of the show, followed by "Big Boss" fame Karishma Tanna and Upen Patel's 'jodi'.
Talking about how the stint at the show helped them as a couple, Amruta said she's had a deeper understanding of her husband.
"I've always told Himmanshoo that there was a 11-year span when I knew you but this two-and-a-half month span of time has made me know different aspects of him. Now I feel there is nothing left for me to know about him and we just want to spend our lives together," she said.

Himmanshoo added that although they were close before the show, "Nach Baliye" helped them have a better understanding of each other.
"The show gave us the opportunity to discover ourselves and each other. I wouldn't say that we weren't close before because that would be a lie since we're together for 11 years but we've reached at a whole new stage in life and I think that's phenomenal," he said.
Asked if they've got any project offers yet, Himmanshoo said: "As of now, there aren't any offers. All of our concentration has been on the show but I'm hoping that if there's a nice offer, we'd definitely work together."
Author Chetan Bhagat, who was judging the show along with actress Preity Zinta and choreographer Marzi Pistaunji, is the couple's favourite and Amruta is positive that their love story might inspire the author to write a novel.
"Chetan sir has been our favourite. And whatever he has known us through the journey and our performances, I definitely think he might write a super hit novel on our love story," Amruta said.
