Rana Daggubati plays a mahout in the movie. He will feature in all three versions. In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, the actor opened up about his role, “Yes, I’ll need to do more for this film. I’ll be taking 15-20 days before the shoot to stay with the elephants in the jungle and get familiar with them before I start filming. At the same time, we are also doing a bunch of workshops because the story is inspired by two events, so we are trying to get as authentic as we can in the filming process.”
The film is produced by Inder Singh Bariya, Omshankar Bhagat, Ajay Rai and Sushil Tirwadkar under the banner of Trinity Pictures. Eros International will distribute the movie. Shantanu Moitra is the music composer. Oscar award-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty – he previously worked on the Malayalam movie Pazhassi Raja that was partially set in forests, is also part of the crew for Haathi Mere Saathi.
