The trilingual adventure drama – ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ will now hit theatres just before Holi on March 26. The film was earlier slated to release on the occasion of Makar Sankranti in January this year.
Pulkit will be seen playing Shankar, a tribesman who has dedicated his life to protecting the jungle and all the animals in it. He supports Rana Daggubati’s character, named Bandev, in his quest. Pulkit Samrat who was last seen in Bejoy Nambiar’s Taish will be portraying an extremely different role in this venture.
Pulkit Samrat, who plays the parallel lead, along with Rana Daggubati will be at the forefront of the battle to help defend the wildlife.
The storyline of HAATHI MERE SAATHI has been inspired by the unfortunate event of humans encroaching the elephant corridors in Kaziranga, Assam. The story is of the fight between the tribesmen and the officials over control of the jungle.
The film helmed by Prabhu Solomon will also be released in Tamil as Kaadan & Telugu as Aranya. The Hindi version of the film also features Zoya Hussain, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Paras Arora, Ankit Sagar and Tinnu Anand.
