Sources confirmed that both actors had given bulk dates for the film, which is either likely to be a complete historical film or have large portions of it set in another century.
Says a source, “The team has plans to shoot in the forts and palaces of great kings in Tamil Nadu and in the North. They have also planned to shoot in China and the US.”
Music for this film, which is to be made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi, is to be scored by A R Rahman and National Award winner Sudeep Chatterjee is to be the cinematographer for this film, which is being produced by Thenandal Films.
The source also claims that the team has already begun work on creating grand sets of halls, both on land and on water. However, the heroines of the film haven’t been finalised as yet. They will be selected shortly, the source adds.
