Actress Shruti Haasan has been roped in as the heroine of director-producer Sundar C’s upcoming mega-venture titled as Sanghamitra.
‘Jayam’ Ravi and Arya play lead roles in the film which would be directed by Sundar C and produced by Sri Thenandal Films. It would be the landmark 100th production venture of this prestigious production house.
Sundar C approached the likes of Vijay and Suriya to star in the film but finally settled for ‘Jayam’ Ravi and Arya. A.R. Rahman gets to score the music of the film which also has Baahubali fame Kamalakkannan as ‘visual effects’ supervisor, Sudeep Chatterjee of Bajirao Mastani fame as cinematographer and Oscar-award winning Resul Pookutty as sound designer.
Shruti is to play the title role in the film and would be paired up opposite ‘Jayam’ Ravi and Arya for the first time on-screen as she hasn’t acted with them in the past. Shruti Haasan is said to have given ‘bulk dates’ to shoot for the film whose shoot is to commence very soon. Shruti also has on her hands Sabaash Naidu directed by her father and actor Kamal haasan.
She is also happy that her latest Tamil film Si3 has been declared by trade pundits as a super-hit venture.
