Rana Daggubati is on a roll. The actor has a couple of very interesting projects in his kitty. According to a leading daily, Rana Daggubati will soon star in a Tamil-Telugu-Hindi trilingual that is going to be directed by Prabhu Solomon. This is a film inspired by Rajesh Khanna starrer Haathi Mere Saathi and Rana is all set to pay tribute to the late actor.
The new Haathi Mere Saathi will also be filmed at various locations across India, shared trade analyst Taran Adarsh. “Haathi Mere Saathi will be shot in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil… Starts Jan 2018 in Thailand… Will also be filmed across various locations in India… Diwali 2018 release,” wrote Mr. Adarsh
This Rana starrer is expected to be high on VFX and marks the Hindi debut of Tamil filmmaker Prabhu Solomon. The actor shared the news on his Twitter account and wrote, “Work in progress 😉 filming begins January 2018!” RJ Alok shared, ” @RanaDaggubati ‘s next, A trilingual, to relese for diwali 2018, will be shot in indian & thailand . film name will be ‘Hathi Mere Sathi’ in Hindi.”
Talking about the film, Rana told the daily that ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ is going to highlight the relevance of nature in our lives through the relationship between a man and an elephant. He added that it will be pretty different from anything that he has done in the past.
“There’s a very exciting physical language to the character I’m playing in Haathi Mere Saathi and is completely 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. It’s a rare story about the relevance of nature in our lives, narrated through a wonderful relationship between man and elephant. Prabhu Solomon’s passion for nature and elephants makes him the finest craftsman in the country who can handle a story like this,” added Rana.
If all goes as planned, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ will take off in January 2018 and arrive in theatres in Diwali 2018. On a related note, this is a busy time for Rana. At present, he is shooting for ‘1945’ which is a period film and features him the role of a soldier.
