Sharing a photograph in which Rana and herself were captured from behind, Shriya Pilgaonkar wrote: 'Wrapped shoot for 'Haathi Mere Saathi'/'Aranya'/'Kadan' (in the three languages respectively). I feel incredibly grateful to be a part of this film and all that it stands for. @ranadaggubati, you were a student on set and not a star. That's so rare. I'm in awe of your commitment & passion towards cinema and your desire to give back. his is a grand vision and I was working alongside an incredibly dedicated cast and crew. This was also my first time filming in three languages (Hindi, Telugu, Tamil) which was a whole new challenge in itself but very exciting'.
Rana didn't take much time to respond on the appreciative post. He conveyed to Shriya Pilgaonkar that its been a pleasure working with her for 'Haathi Meri Saathi'.
For 'Haathi Meri Saathi', Rana underwent a drastic makeover...lost oodles of weight to look lean. This is going to be a huge surprise for all those who were in awe of Bhallaladeva while watching Baahubali franchise.
