Set in the 8th century AD, Sangamithra, is a heartfelt tale of the trials and tribulations of Sangamithra and her journey to save her kingdom. It is an account of numerous kingdoms, numerous conditions, numerous connections, told in a yearning, overwhelming, outwardly excessive way.
Chennai: Ulaganayakan Kamal Haasan's daughter Shruti Haasan is also doing the role of a warrior princess like Tamannah did in Baahubali sequences. Sundar C directs this historical slated to release in two parts with the first part arriving next year. It is big budget film, produced by N. Ramasamy under the banner, Sri Thenandal Films.
On the lines of the Baahubali series, which has become the all-time biggest hit at the box office in India, the makers are trying to tell the story of Sangamithra to national and global audience. Shruti underwent training for sword fighting in London.
"I was so glad to have this opportunity to learn a new physical art form".
