Actor and filmmaker Sundar C will be making a period film titled ‘Sangamithra’ which will be produced by Sri Thenandal Films. The film earlier has Shruti Haasan in the titular role and actor Jayam Ravi and Arya are also part of the project. The makers had revealed the first look posters of the film at the Cannes Film Festival early this year and the buzz around the film was huge. However, actress Shruti Haasan opted out of the project stating she never received a bound script for the film. The film was delayed because of the cast issues and now the makers have confirmed the lead actress for the film.
