This Sundar C project is touted to be one of the most expensive projects till date.
Sanghamitra--Sundar C's current project is now underway. Actors for the lead role are now being considered. An earlier reported stated that Illayathalapathy Vijay was approached for the lead role but the star opted out of the project. Some say it's because the debacle of Puli has made him more cautious. And now we hear, Tamil actor Jayam Ravi and Mahesh Babu have been roped for this mega budget multi-lingual film. So as we told you earlier, the lead will be played by a different actor in each languages. Apparently there are talks of approaching a Bollywood hero but there have been no confirmations about this.
But now the latest report suggest, Jayam and Mahesh have been roped in.But no confirmations have been made so far. The movie is going to be made on a whopping budget of Rs 350 crore thus beating Baahubali and Rajinikanth's 2.0 budgets. AR Rahman will compose the tunes, RC Kamalakannan will be handling visual effects and Sudeep Chatterjee will be handling the camera. Baahubali art director Sabu Cyril has also been roped in for this project. It is being produced under the Thendal films banner. Reportedly it will be their 100th film.
Currently Jayam is shooting for Bogan. The movie also stars Hansika. According to reports, he has been impressed by the script but he is yet to signed on the dotted line. Reportedly he has already signed three films so it's about now allocating dates for this one. While Mahesh Babu is busy shooting for his untitled project with AR Murugadoss. The movie stars Rakul Preet Singh. Reportedly the movie is being made on a budget of 90 crore. There were reports of the movie being called Vasco Da Gama and Enemy but no confirmations have been made so far.
So will the Thani Oruvan actor and The Srimanthudu actor get together for this expensive project? And we are wondering if the makers will be approaching a Bollywood biggie. If they were to, who should they be approaching?
