Rana Daggubati and Prabhu Solomon team up

The actor and filmmaker will be joining hands to work on the trilingual remake of Rajesh Khanna's 1971 film, Haathi Mere Saathi

Published: 30th November 2017

Rana Daggubati is on board for the trilingual remake of late actor Rajesh Khanna's 1971 film, Haathi Mere Saathi. Inspired by true events, the film will be directed by Prabhu Solomon.

Eros International's Trinity Pictures announced that the remake will be a tribute to the old classic and will go on the floors in January next year. It will be shot in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil, and the filming will begin in Thailand.

"There's a very exciting physical language to the character I'm playing in Haathi Mere Saathi, something entirely different from what I've done in the past. I've always wanted to be part of content that has the scope for travel across the country, and I'm  happy that Trinity is backing a film of this genre," Rana says. The actor goes on to say it's a rare story "about the relevance of nature in our lives, narrated through a wonderful relationship between man and elephant." 

"This story is definitely another of those rare challenges I'm beginning to enjoy being a part of. Prabhu Solomon's passion for nature and elephants makes him probably the finest craftsman in the country who can handle a story like this," he adds. 

Haathi Mere Saathi is slated to release for Diwali, next year.
