South Indian superstar Rana Daggubati is all set to star in yet another multilingual film. After his latest blockbuster hit "Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, the actor will headline the cast of "Haathi Mere Saathi." Prabhu Solomon will be responsible for the direction of this movie that will be funded by Eros International. This Indian film is simultaneously shot in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. Each regional version will have its own unique title. All the versions will serve as a tribute to the late legendary actor Rajesh Khanna with a whole new storyline. During the teaser and poster launch of "Haathi Mere Saathi," Rana Daggubati unveiled that the film mirrors the realities of society. He added that they're not trying to give any social message through the film. They know that somewhere out there in different parts of the world, there's an elephant corridor as well as urbanization. It's because of the fact that cities grow bigger that they tend to break the wildlife's natural habitat. Bandev, Rana's character in the film, teaches viewers that a sense of co-existence is what's needed to solve this problem. According to him, filmmakers and artists alike have the ability to influence people through film. The message that they want to convey is focused on giving back to the environment. They hope they can tell an engaging and entertaining story that can influence people to do the same. This message behind this Bollywood film in itself should be enough to convince you to watch it. But, if you're still not sold on it, don't worry! Here's a list of the most exciting things that were revealed in the Haathi Mere Saathi trailer!
In this film, Rana Daggubati plays the role of "Bandev," which supposedly means lord of the forest and the protector of nature. The 35-year-old actor went through great lengths to prepare for his role. He followed a strict diet and underwent extensive training to lose weight before starring as the lead of Haathi Mere Saathi. His character is a strong-willed individual who fights for forest conservation. Not to mention the fact that his companions are a heard of elephants. Rana is definitely presented in a different light in this one compared to his other films.
Actor Rana Daggubati has said so himself that "Haathi Mere Saathi" mirrors society. Human encroachment happens in many parts of India as well as the world. Somewhere, there's an elephant corridor and there's urbanization. There are also several cities that grow and break their wildlife's natural habitat. Rana mentions the recent events that are happening around the world like wildfires in the amazon and bushfires in Australia. He said that artists and filmmakers have the means to voice out certain things and that's what he hopes to accomplish with this film.
There's no denying that there's going to be a ton of visual effects and CGI (Computer-generated imagery) in this movie. Judging from the trailer, it looks like there'll be a lot of scenes where the wildlife will be the focus. With that being said, fans will be pleased to know that the VFX sequences have been done by Prana Studios. They're the studio behind popular Hollywood films such as "Life of Pi" and "Thor" including the well-known Bollywood film "Detective Bymokesh Bakshi."
"Haathi Mere Saathi" was originally the title of a Rajesh Khanna-Tanuja film that became a huge hit during the early '70s. But, contrary to rumors, this movie won't be a remake of the classic. According to a source from the filmmaker's unit, the only thing similar about the two films is that there's an undeniable bond between elephants and humans. Other than that, both movies are quite different.
Conflict arises in the film when a corporate giant threatens to destroy the jungle and the natural habitat of the elephants. That's when the son of the soil, protector of the forest, steps in to save his home. Now, the latter part feels like it came straight from a comic book. But, the former is more real than you think. The film's storyline is actually inspired by true events. There were reports of humans encroaching the elephant corridors in Kaziranga and Assam.
