The release date of Haathi Mere Saathi starring Rana Daggubati has gone through quite a few revisions. Presently the makers of the movie have announced that this jungle tale will release on April 2020. It was first supposed to release alongside the Bollywood movie Thugs of Hindostan. However, when asked about this in an interview with a daily portal, a source reportedly said that the makers actually wanted to release the film during May or April of 2019 when the summer vacations are in full swing. However, even then Haathi Mere Saathi did not release and the date was reportedly pushed back even further to sometime in 2020.

According to reports of a source, Rana Daggubati’s Haathi Mere Saathi is taking a longer time than expected since the shooting involves a lot of scenes in the wild. Many wild animals are also being incorporated in the movie and visual effects also have an important role to play. The source also reportedly added that the post-production work is taking more time which is causing the delay in the release of Haathi Mere Saathi.
