The teasers and posters of the movie have drummed up much interest and left fans eagerly awaiting the release. Ace director Prabhu Solomon helms the film. The film stars South Superstar Rana Daggubati as a parallel lead along with Shriya Pilgaonkar & Zoya Hussain in important roles.
Pulkit essays the role of Shankar, a villager who supports Rana’s Bandev character in his quest to save the jungle and it’s animals. His role has various facets and Pulkit portrays them all very well. This is the first time Pulkit will be seen in such a role.
Haathi Mere Saathi’s story line has been inspired by the unfortunate event of humans encroaching the elephant corridors in Kaziranga, Assam. The film traces the narrative of a man, the role essayed by Rana, who dedicated most of his life living in the jungle with the sole purpose of protecting the animals inhabiting it and how he becomes part of the conflict.
Director Solomon also shared his views saying, “I am very excited about the project. One of the most serious threats to elephants is habitat loss. They share a landscape increasingly fragmented by agriculture, roads and railway lines, with an ever-expanding human population, and this forces them into frequent conflict. It’s a subject which needs everyone’s attention and should be talked about.”
Produced by Eros International, all three titles, ‘Kaadan’ in Tamil, ‘Aranya’ in Telugu and ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ in Hindi are scheduled to release on Thursday, April 2nd, 2020.
Pulkit was last seen in Anees Bazmee’s Pagalpanti and will next be seen in Beejoy Nambiar’s upcoming revenge thriller Taish.
