Recently in India to promote his upcoming Netflix film Mowgli: legend of the jungleHollywood actor Christian Bale, in whom he plays Bagheera, says he is not a method actor.

"People seem to think I'm a method actor. But I'm not one. I haven't trained at all. Method Acting requires training in the Stanislavski method (created by Russian theater artist Konstantin Stanislavski). I've never read a book about it "I haven't learned anything about it for a second. I'm copying everything as I go. It's the uneducated method that is my method. A lot of it is trial and error," he said in a recent interview with the Hindustan Times.

Speaking of Netflix Mowgli Promoted as a dark film, he said, "I don't think this is a happy film. There is a lot of joy in this film. It is a pleasure that Mowgli rides on the back of a panther (bagheera) and runs with the wolves and howls at the moon – I think everyone's imagination is great. "

In comparison to the previous versions, he said: “The film contains deeper topics. There are consequences that resemble Kipling's original writings. In my opinion there is no competition with the other interpretations. I love the animated films and the recently released live action film. I love Bare Necessities (the 1967 Jungle Book song) and Baloo. That's the beauty of the jungle book – you can have so many far-reaching interpretations. "
