Role in the film[]

Ranjan looks up to Mowgli as an older brother (not just as an adopted brother) in the film. He is the son of the village Chief and Messua . Ranjan is the "little tyke" of the cast, because he is influenced by Mowgli's stories to be a wild, fun loving child. But he can, in fact, be serious when he has to. For example, when Shanti was hypnotized by Kaa, Ranjan ramptly beats him with a stick, saving Shanti's life. Ranjan sees Shanti as a responsible sister, giving him a reason to allow her to hold his hand, feed him, burp him like an infant, or change his pants. Although when he sees a sign that Mowgli was near, Ranjan darts off without a care in the world. At the end of the film, he's opening the Untamed Jungle party by popping out of the pot. He is seen playing with Bagheera 's tail.
