Vishnu Vishal joins Rana Daggubati starrer Haathi Mere Saathi.

Actor Rana Daggubati will next be seen in upcoming trilingual Haathi Mere Saathi, in which he plays a mahout. The film, to be directed by Prabhu Solomon, is said to be about conservation of wildlife, and also a tribute to Rajesh Khann’s yesteryear classic. Reportedly, Rana lost about 15 kg to play his role in the film. The latest update is that actor Vishnu Vishal has joined the project and he will be seen alongside Rana in the Tamil and Telugu versions of the film. Sharing the news on his Twitter page on Saturday evening, Vishal wrote that he’s thrilled to be part of the project.

“Happy to be joining hands with dir Prabhu Solomon sir for the trilingual Haathi Mere Saathi where I will be doing the Tamil and Telugu versions alongside @RanaDaggubati. My direct Telugu debut. Wrapped up 26 day schedule today in Munnar (sic).” Vishnu also clarified that the film is not a sequel to Solomon’s highly successful Kumki.

The film, contrary to rumours, won’t be a remake of the classic. The only similarity between the two films will be the bond between elephants and human beings. After shooting extensively in Thailand and Kerala, the team will next head to Delhi. The rest of the cast and crew are still kept under the wraps. The makers are hoping to bring the film out for Diwali 2018. Before joining the sets of the film, Rana spent around two weeks with elephants in Thailand just to get used to being around them.
