Shriya Pilgaonkar is playing a crucial role in Rana Daggubati’s Haathi Mere Saathi (Aranya in Telugu). The movie which was supposed to release in April got postponed at the last minute and the movie will now release for Sankranthi next year.
Directed by Prabhu Solomon, the lavishly made film will release across three languages – Telugu, Hindi, and Tamil. The actress is in all praises for Rana in an interview. “After a phenomenal success of Baahubali, the way he physically transformed for his was something so inspiring for me as an actor,” she said.
“He is not just an actor. He also produces and runs other companies. He is genuinely interested in the art of storytelling. He is completely immersed in the character that he plays,” the actor added. However, as things stand today, the movie will face immense competition at the box office in Telugu for the festive season.Follow @THEPANIPURI
