"I offered an Indian accent to (director) Jon (Favreau) for my Bagheera, and we debated it, and then we thought, 'No, actually, it's more British', and then I leaned towards a military Brit to have authority, discipline, command, and then underneath that of course, tremendous loyalty and affection." SIR Ben Kingsley on perfecting the voice on panther Bagheera in new animated movie The Jungle Book.
