Shriya Pilgaonkar is thrilled to be a part of her upcoming film Haathi Mere Saathi, where she features alongside Rana Daggubati.
Shriya took to Instagram on the International Day of Forests to share her experience of shooting in rainforests full of wild elephants. The trilingual film “Haathi Mere Saathi” marks the actress’ Tamil and Telugu debut.
Shreya shared photographs on Instagram on Sunday evening where she can be seen happily posing with elephants and riding on their back. In one picture, the actress also hugs a tree.
She wrote, “It’s not everyday that you get to film in a rainforest with wild elephants for company. This film demanded that we surrender to nature. Listen. Observe . Learn. Truly feel that oneness & sense of responsibility. While i didn’t film with Unnikrishnan, the beautiful tusker , I would come a little early on set and join him for breakfast. Our trilingual film releases on 26th March in theatres . An important film for the times we live in 🐘 🌳♥️ #Aranya -Telugu #Kaadan -Tamil #HaathiMereSaathi- Hindi #WorldForestDay #TamilTelugu #Elephant #Kerala #SaveTheElephants”
