Vijay, Mahesh Babu in Sundar C’s next: Vijay and Mahesh Babu are expected to play the lead roles in director Sundar C’s next film, which is also the 100th film of Sri Thenandal Films. The movie is said to be a historical film and is said to be a trilingual in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
“If the project indeed takes off, this will be the first time Mahesh Babu and Vijay will be working on the same film at the same time,” sources said.
Sundar is planning the film like Baahubali. Oscar winner A R Rahman would score music for it. Touted to be a period action thriller, sources say that Thiru of Hey Ram and 24 fame will be cranking the camera and Sabu Cyril will take care of the production design.
The Mozart of Madras, who has previously worked in historical films like Jodha Akbar and the recent Mohenjo Daro, has produced riveting soundtracks.
The film is tentatively titled Brobdingnagian and is touted to be the most expensive film ever made in India, according to Only Kollywood. It is also rumoured that the film will be costlier than SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali and Shankar’s Enthiran 2.0.
In an earlier media interaction, Sundar has revealed that his next period film for Sri Thenandal Films will be the biggest project ever made in the country.
