We live in a world where everyone laughs at some time or the other, yet in this world of ours, there lives a strange and immensely rich family who consider laughter a terrible sin! For generations, even a mere smile has never been visible in this household.

The head of this strange family is Shekhar. a stubborn young man with a firm belief in the family tradition. In short, he is a machine who presides over the vast family business empire, without feeling or emotion.

Yet when our world can produce Junglees like Shekhar, happily it also produces fabulous beauties like Rajkumari- The wise men have said that if there be a Heaven on Earth, then surely it is Kashmir. If Kashmir be Heaven, then it is the wondrous beauty of maidens like Rajkumari that makes it so... before Rajkumari, the scenic splendour of Kashmir willingly took a second place!

Just imagine for a moment....amid the wonders of Nature at Kashmir....amid the wonders of Nature at Kashmir.... just imagine what would result when the great beauty Rajkumari came face to face with the mirthless Junglee, Shekhar? Ah, but that is just what the colourful story of "JUNGLEE" is going to tell you.....
