RANA DAGGUBATI SPILLS THE BEANS ABOUT SHOOTING IN FORESTS
Rana Daggubati and the rest of the Kaadan crew shot in the jungles of Thailand and Kerala. In a statement, the actor shared his experience in shooting in forest areas.
He said, “We had to be mindful of our surroundings. We were careful not to disturb or spoil the natural surroundings and the environment which was the home to various living beings there. But we were so kicked about the film and the message it carried that we went through all this with a smile on our faces. It just felt like an adventurous experience and we lived each day to the fullest on the sets along with the elephants. We had become one big happy family together in the wilderness.”
Kaadan addresses important topics such as forest encroachment and crony capitalism. Kaadan’s trailer was released on the occasion of World Wildlife Day.
