The film, with Disha Patani in the lead role, has been delayed for long.

Months after Sundar C’s upcoming magnum opus Sanghamitra was launched at the Cannes International Film Festival last year and Shruti Haasan walked out of the project citing creative differences, the first major update has come from the film’s leading lady Disha Patani. She has confirmed that the film will start rolling from July onwards.

According to a Mumbai Mirror report: “The shooting will take place in Hyderabad on sets very similar to that of Baahubali. It will be filmed on a grand scale and if everything goes according to plan, the first part will be unveiled next year.”

Earlier this year, putting to rest rumours about the project being shelved, Sundar said in a media interaction that it’s taking more time than expected to commence work because of the scale of the project.

“The pre-production work is still going on. On a project of this scale, pre-production is followed by storyboard creation. Unlike other films where work on graphics will be done only after shooting, here in Sangamithra, we have started it before shooting. The project is very much on; we hope to start shooting from second half of this year," he said.

Tipped to be being made on a budget of INR 150 crore, the film happens to the most expensive project in the careers of its director Sundar C and the makers. Going the Baahubali way, the first part will feature Arya while the second one will star Jayam Ravi. Jayam Ravi, too, had said that he will start training for the project and beef up to play a very challenging role. Arya, who hasn't had a hit in a long time, has pinned all his hopes on this film as he wishes to bounce back strongly.

A.R Rahman has been roped in to compose music and he has apparently already completed a song. The film will also be made in Telugu and Hindi but perhaps not simultaneously along with its Tamil version.
