Rana Daggubati’s high-scale action film Haathi Mere Saathi finally gets a release date.

Rana Daggubati has announced his next, Haathi Mere Saathi, will release on 2 April. The actor made the announcement along with several new posters from the adventure drama. In one of the posters, we can see Rana charging towards the camera with an elephant in the background.
 
Directed by Tamil filmmaker Prabhu Solomon, the trilingual film will release as Kaadan in Tamil and Aranya in Telugu. According to Indo-Asian News Service, Haathi Mere Saathi movie bases on the issue of human encroachment upon Kaziranga's elephant corridor. The film will narrate the tale of a man who dedicates his life to protecting and safekeeping wild animals. Speaking about the film, Solomon said in a statement, "I am very excited about the project. The objective of bringing out a narrative of this scale in three different languages is to reach out to audiences in various parts of India. It is a subject that needs everyone's attention and should talk about it. I hope we make a difference with the three titles."
 
For the Tamil and Telugu versions, Daggubati and Vishnu Vishal are playing the lead roles. In Hindi, Pulkit Samrat will be seen as another protagonist. However, Solomon retained Rana in all three languages — Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi because of his pan-Indian appeal earned through the Baahubali franchise. The film features Shriya Pilgaonkar and Zoya Hussain as the female leads in all the three versions.
 
Announced back in 2017, the film was earlier rumored to be a remake of the 1971 Rajesh Khanna film of the same name, about a man and his friendship with an elephant. Others reported the film is the sequel to director Prabhu Solomon’s blockbuster award-winning film Kumki.
 
However, Vishal had denied the reports in his interactions with Firstpost. “It’s neither a remake of Haathi Mere Saathi nor a sequel to Kumki. Prabhu Solomon’s script is fresh, and the rumors have started because elephants played pivotal characters in both Haathi Mere Saathi and Kumki," he said.
 
Backed by Eros International, the VFX of Haathi Mere Saathi has done by Prana Studios, the studio behind Hollywood biggies, such as Life Of Pi and Thor, and the Bollywood film Detective Bymokesh Bakshi.
