Rana Daggubati took to twitter to announce the title and look of his next Haathi Mere Saathi. This film is a Trilingual being shot in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi simultaneously. According to the reports the name Haathi Mere Saathi has nothing to do with Rajesh Khanna’s classic and this film is not a remake. Clearly this film has 3 different names only one of them is Haathi Mere Saathi. By the look of it seems awfully similar to Rajesh Khanna’s blockbuster but there is no such speculation from the makers of Rana’s film. Rana is playing a character called Bnadev in the film and he looks like one of those jungle people who are handy and communicative with animals.
The decision of making a multilingual is a hefty one as it must not be easy to do the same take in 3 different languages and if you he is going to mold the beats of his performance according to the diaspora he is serving based on the audience of that language. No other information is revealed by the makers in their tweet except the fact that film will release in 2018. Post Baahubali Rana has found a market pan India but Haathi Mere Saathi will be the judgement of if the market belongs to Rana or his Bhallaldeva.
Rana is riding high on the success of his latest Telugu superhit Nene Raju Nene Mantri. His powerful mass performance was highly appreciated by the audience though film is quite routine in it’s structure. Rana’s career graph is soaring all time high and finally he could become a leading man in big films as he usually use to play villains to other big stars. Rana looks quite rugged and even aged in his look from Haathi Mere Saathi and the role could end up being quite challenging if his aesthetically shown speaking with the animals without using any dialogues and still holding the audience to the screen.
