Sundar C’s magnum opus Sangamitra had made headlines and hyped as India’s costliest film. Major names in Kollywood had been linked to the project but none of them were materialised. But now it looks like the makers have zeroed in the lead actors.
As per the reports, Jayam Ravi and Arya have been roped in to play the lead roles in the big-budget historical film. The film will be shot in a span of two years and will be a trilingual film in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Jayam Ravi and Arya shared the news via Twitter.
