With a spike in Covid-19 cases, makers have put the Bollywood version on hold in India.
The makers of Rana Daggubati’s Haathi Mere Saathi, the Hindi version of his upcoming multi-lingual action-drama, has announced the film’s big-screen release has been put on hold due to rising Covid-19 cases in the country but it will release in UAE on March 25, according to Gulf News.
In a statement released on Twitter, Eros Now confirmed the Hindi version will be released at a later date, but the Telugu and Tamil language films will release this week as scheduled.
“Dear viewers, it pains us to share this news but given the Covid-19 situation in the Hindi markets, the team of Haathi Mere Saathi has decided to hold on to the release of the film. We shall keep you posted on further developments. However, we will be releasing Aranya and Kaadan in the South markets on the 26th of March,” Eros International tweeted.
Besides Rana Daggubati, who stars in all three versions, Haathi Mere Saathi features Pulkit Samrat, Shriya Pilgaonkar and Zoya Hussain. The film has been directed by Prabhu Solomon.
The movie is reportedly inspired by true events and is a tribute to the 1971 classic film Haathi Mere Saathi — starring Rajesh Khanna and Tanuja.
