World Elephant Day was established on August 12, 2012 to bring attention to the urgent plight of Asian and African elephants whose numbers are falling due to poaching, habitat loss, human-elephant conflict and mistreatment in captivity.

On the occasion of the 6th World Elephant Day on Sunday, Bollywood actor Vidyut Jammwal shared new looks from his action-adventure thriller ‘Junglee’ directed by American filmmaker Chuck Russell in which he can be seen in various poses with elephants.

Sharing the 3 looks Vidyut Jammwal tweeted, "If we don't buy,their mothers don't die. SAY NO TO IVORY."

The film Junglee is about a unique relationship between man and elephants and is based on elephant poaching and ivory smuggling. Junglee is set to release on April 5, 2019.

Talking about Vidyut, director of the film Russell said, "It is great to see Vidyut being noted as the rising star in action films across the world. He has a rare combination of cinematic charm and killer moves that will make him unstoppable after this film."

He added, "What really distinguishes Vidyut is his deep knowledge of the martial art Kalaripayattu and his understanding of its philosophy to not only protect and fight but also use it to heal. I had the pleasure of creating his role in Junglee to play his style of action, supporting a positive message. I can't wait for audiences to see it on the big screen."
