Indian stars Jayam Ravi (Thillalangadi, Thani Oruvan), Arya (Boss Engira Bhaskaran, Vettai), and Shruti Haasan (Gabbar Is Back, Welcome Back) are set to appear in Sundar C.’s (Aranmanai, Anbe Sivam) latest directorial venture, Sangamithra, coming from Thenandal Studios Limited. Oscar-winner A.R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) has also boarded the project as composer.
The film will be officially launched Thursday at the Marche du Film’s opening night in Cannes, which the cast, director, production designer, producers and Rahman will attend. Sangamithra, is a heartfelt tale of the trials and tribulations of Sangamithra and her journey to save her kingdom. As an ode to one of the oldest languages in the world, the film is set to explore uncharted chapters in ancient Tamil history.
The feature film will be split into two parts and is currently in preproduction, with principal photography set to commence later this summer. The Indian box office is on the rise and we are looking forward to introducing Sangamithra to the international market, and cementing our existing strengths in building new industry relationships in Cannes.
