Indian film actor and model, Pulkit Samrat has started the shooting of his upcoming film ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ in Adoor in Kerala. He will be seen playing a mahout, an elephant tamer, in the film. It also stars actors like Rana Daggubati and Kalki Koechlin.
Pulkit said in a statement, “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,” said Pulkit.
The actor added, “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.”
The film is directed by Prabhu Solomon and is being shot simultaneously in Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil.
Pulkit made his acting debut as Lakshya Virani in Star Plus’s popular TV series ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ in 2006. Although he quit the show within a year, he received recognition.
He made his Bollywood debut with ‘Bittoo Boss’ in 2012. The film was a box office bomb, but Pulkit’s work was noticed and he managed to bag a role in Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s ‘Fukrey’. It became a sleeper hit and Samrat’s career gained momentum. Later he appeared in several movies and gave few hits.
