Actor Rana Daggubati has jetted off to the jungles of Kerala for the shoot of his upcoming film Haathi Mere Saathi. Rana on Tuesday tweeted, “Morning... Off into the jungles of Kerala for filming Haathi Mere Saathi.”
Haathi Mere Saathi is a multilingual film and the plot revolves around wildlife conservation. While the Hindi version features Pulkit Samrat, the Tamil and Telugu version will have Vishnu Vishal playing the same role. Zoya Hussein and Kalki Koechlin will also play a pivotal role in the film.
The Eros International’s movie is titled Kaadan in Tamil and Aranya in Telugu. Helmed by Prabhu Solomon, the trilingual is being shot simultaneously in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil. The movie will highlight man-animal relationship and is a story inspired by true events. The tile is a tribute to 1971 classic film Haathi Mere Saathi -- starring Rajesh Khanna and Tanuja, but the plot is completely different. The music has been composed by Shantanu Moitra and sound designed by Resul Pookutty.

Speaking about his role to Mumbai Mirror, Rana had earlier said, “Yes, I’ll need to do more for this film. I’ll be taking 15-20 days before the shoot to stay with the elephants in the jungle and get familiar with them before I start filming. At the same time, we are also doing a bunch of workshops because the story is inspired by two events, so we are trying to get as authentic as we can in the filming process.”
