Actor ‘Jayam’ Ravi is said to have given director Sundar C two full years, something which not many frontline heroes would do, for the shoot of his upcoming film titled as Sangamithra, a period type venture which also has Arya as the other hero.
To be made in Tamil and to be dubbed later in Telugu and Hindi for simultaneous release, the shoot of Sangamithra hasn’t yet commenced. Actress Shruti Haasan recently opted out of the offer to play the title role in the film accusing the makers of not showing her the script. Names of Nayantara, Anushka and Hansika are cited as possible replacements though Sundar C hasn’t yet finalized his crew members.
The period-type venture is to be produced at a whopping cost by Sri Thenandal Films. It turns out that Ravi has given call-sheet to star in the film continuously for the next two years. It is for this particular reason that many frontline heroes didn’t take up the role which Ravi eventually took up.
“I have starred in a few films which took more than 3 years in the making; as far as I’m concerned, I’m more bothered about the quality of the film than about the days it takes for the makers to make it. When I look back in future, I should feel proud that I have starred in such a film. Patience is the key to making such films,” ‘Jayam’ Ravi justifies his decision.
