Fukrey actor Pulkit Samrat will be seen playing the role of a mahout in his upcoming movie Haathi Mere Saathi. The actor will be seen sharing the screen with Baahubali actor Rana Daggubati and ZNMD actress Kalki Koechlin. The actor has recently, on Thursday, started shooting for the movie in Adoor, Kerala.
He shared his experience for the initial days of shooting saying, "Lush green forests, chirping birds and the gentle beast...that's what the shoot for 'Haathi....' is like every single day. A life changing experience which not only is beautiful at the face of it but the soul too."
"Elephant corridors being encroached upon by corporate giants is a big menace claiming lives of several elephants every year," the actor added.
Pulkit also stated, "The film revolves around true incidents from all over the country and makes us pause and think about it while entertaining us with scenic visuals and soulful music."
Prabhu Solomon’s directed movie will release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu with different casts with titles Kaadan in Tamil and Aranya in Telugu. The movie is a tribute to the late Bollywood actor Rajesh Khanna with a new storyline.
