Rana Daggubati shared something more special to him than a photo of him at a party on New Year's Eve Sunday night. 

The "Baahubali" actor took to Twitter to share the first look of his upcoming film "Haathi Mere Saathi" featuring him and a majestic elephant in the picture. In the picture, the actor sports short hair and a rugged look while standing in front of an elephant, almost in a defensive position. 

He wrote: “Entering the new year with a great new story to tell. Introducing #Bandev from #HaathiMereSaathi #HaathiMereSaathiFL.”

Daggubati later added, “And now It’s officially another year!! Happy New Year!! Let’s make each day count!! Best wishes. And for the one’s who missed here’s #Bandev form #HaathiMereSaathi."

The actor had earlier mentioned being a part of a film that deals with conservation of elephants titled "Haathi Mere Saathi" which is not a remake of the classic Rajesh Khanna film of the same name. 

The film is directed by Prabhu Solomon and is inspired by real-life events -- about the bond between man and the animal.

The team will begin shooting for the film in Thailand soon and the film will also be shot in a few select locations in India.

The trilingual film is expected to release on Diwali in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
