The year 2017 was surely successful for the South stars especially for the cast of ‘Baahubali’. One such star is Rana Daggubati, who has definitely been through one of the best years of his career. After the mega-blockbuster hit Baahubali: The Conclusion, the actor ended his 2017 with another bang by unveiling his first look from the movie ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’. Rana’s film is a remake of Rajesh Khanna’s 1971’s film of the same name but this movie will have another dimension to it. Rana’s first look from the movie is really raw, fierce and wild. Inspired by true events, the remake will be helmed by Prabhu Solomon. Filming of the remake will commence in Thailand and then travel to various locations across India. It will be a trilingual film shot in Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil. Rana’s character will be called Bandev i.e. the lord of the jungle.
Talking about the film and his role, Rana told a leading daily, “There’s a very exciting physical language to the character I’m playing in ‘Haathi Mere Saathi‘, something entirely different from what I’ve done in the past. I’ve always wanted to be a part of the content that can travel across the country, and am very happy that Trinity is backing cinema of this genre. It’s a rare story about the relevance of nature in our lives, narrated through a wonderful relationship between man and elephant. This story is definitely another of those rare challenges I’m beginning to enjoy being a part of. Prabhu Solomon passion for nature and elephants makes him probably the finest craftsman in the country, who can handle a story like this.”
‘Haathi Mere Saathi is being produced by Eros International and Trinity Pictures. It is slated to release on Diwali this year.
