Hyderabad: Actor-filmmaker Ravi Babu on Tuesday made a public appearance with a piglet here, much to the surprise of the general public. He had come to withdraw cash from a bank.
The piglet plays the central character in his upcoming Telugu film, "Adhugo".
"Wherever I go these days, I take the piglet along. I can't leave him at home because there's nobody to take care. I had to withdraw cash from the bank, so I decided to take the piglet with me. Although people were a little surprised to see it, nobody made a fuss out of it," Ravi Babu told IANS.
The film is currently in its post-production stage.
"I raised a few piglets in my friend's farm for the film. While most of the film was shot with live piglet, we did use animatronics to shoot some important sequences. It's the first time an Indian film has used a piglet," he said.
The film is produced by Suresh Babu.
