A few days ago, it was rumoured that Sundar C’s highly ambitious ‘Sangamithra’ had been put on the backburner. And, as expected, this created quite a buzz amongst fans. During the recently-held press meet of ‘Kalakappu 2’, the director commented on the situation and said that—contrary to reports—‘Sangamithra’ has not been shelved. He added that its shoot will begin in April or May.
“Sangamithra is definitely not dropped. A film of that grandness and scale needs a perfect planning, and we, as a team, have been working on the pre-production for the past one year. We are hoping to start the shoot from April or May, this year. Shooting is comparatively easy for Sangamithra than the pre-production. For these kinds of films, usually graphics work will be done only after shooting, whereas, for Sangamithra, graphics work has already started, and keeping the digital images reference, we’d shoot,” he added.
Sundar C also said that as ‘Sangamithra’ is a magnum opus of sorts a lot of pre-production work is needed before the shoot begins.
“For Kalakalappu 2 type of film, after completing the script, we can immediately go for the shoot. But, for Sangamithra, you need to have a proper storyboard, asset creation, before going for the shoot. So, our team is working on that,” added the director.
Well, we wish the ‘Sangamithra’ team good luck and hope that all these efforts pay off.
In case you did not know, ‘Sangamithra’ is a period-drama and features Jayam Ravi in the lead. Initially, Shruti Haasan was supposed to play the female lead but she opt out and claimed that sh had not received a bound script. The lovely lady was eventually replaced by Bollywood diva Disha Patani.
So, are you looking forward to ‘Sangamithra’? Will this be another ‘Baahubali’? Comments, please!
