Pulkit Samrat was most recently seen in comic-caper “Pagalpanti” which failed to tickle the funny bone of the audience. He next stars in “Haathi Mere Saathi”.

Pulkit Samrat, who is known for his good looks and great onscreen presence, was most recently seen in multi-starrer comic-caper Pagalpanti (2019), which failed to tickle the funny bone of the audience. Keeping the failure of the film aside, Pulkit Samrat is now looking for his next film Haathi Mere Saathi, helmed by well-known South Indian filmmaker Prabhu Solomon.

Showering praises on his director, the actor tells a publication, “I am really in awe of shooting with the exuberant Prabhu Solomon. He has shot the scenic forest locales with lush greenery amazingly well. We have never seen a forest in this stunning manner. Prabhu is an amazing storyteller.”

Pulkit Samrat goes on to reveal that approximately 80 per cent of the shooting of the film has been completed, with the last leg of the filming to be done in Kerala. “The last leg of shooting in Kerala is still left, and I am looking forward to being with the team and the elephants,” says the actor.

When asked about his experience of playing a mahout in Haathi Mere Saathi, the actor shares, “It has been an enormous experience. I remember, I would meet the elephants that I may have shot with after three or four days, they would come close to me and show their love and affection as if saying, ‘We have been missing you’. These elephants are conversational, we did not need to use any stick to control them.”

Haathi Mere Saathi is a multilingual film shot simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil and Telegu, “We shot simultaneously in three languages, but every actor will play it differently. For example, if I shot a scene in Hindi, I will do it my way. Vishnu Vishal, playing the same role in Tamil/Telugu, will shoot the same scene simultaneously but in his own way.  So, everyone does it differently. It was not only a huge learning experience but since we are not dubbing the film and shooting instantly in varied languages, I hoarded another degree of technicality in filmmaking. The same scene was done at one time in three different ways by different actors,” Pulkit Samrat says before signing off.
