Rana Daggubati established himself as a pan Indian actor, appearing in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi films and not type casting himself to a single role. The versatile actor took up the task of portraying different kinds of characters in the past, like essaying the role of an antagonist, supporting roles and a lead actor.
Rana Daggubati will appear as Bandev in the upcoming film Aranya, directed by Prabu Solomon. The movie is produced and distributed by Eros International. The teaser of Aranya was released on social media. It shows Rana Daggubati as Bandev, a protector of forests, taking on what looks like a corporate entity encroaching on forest lands inhabited by a herd of elephants. It is easy to understand the plot of Aranya by looking at the teaser. Rana Daggubati looks convincing as Bandev, sporting a rugged look.
Aranya will be released in Tamil as Kaadan and Haathi Mere Saathi in Hindi. The movie is a tribute of sorts to the late legendary Bollywood actor Rajesh Khanna, who also acted in a movie titled Haathi Mere Saathi (1971.) However, director Prabu Solomon said the upcoming movie will have a completely different and fresh storyline.
Shriya Pilgaonkar, Zoya Hussain, Vishnu Vishal and Raghu Babu will appear in supporting roles. The music for Aranya is composed by Shantanu Moitra and the lyrics for the Telugu version are written by Vanamaali. The movie is slated for release on April 2nd, 2020.
