Sundar C had earlier roped in Bollywood cinematographer Sudeep Chatterjee for his mega budget film Sanghamitra. Sudeep however dropped out of the project citing date issues. He is busy with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical drama Padmavati.

Sundar C has finally settled on National Award winning cameraman Thiru for the project. Thiru recently won the National Award for his work on Suriya’s futuristic thriller 24.

Sanghamitra stars Jayam Ravi, Arya and shruti haasan in lead roles. The film’s music is composed by A R Rahman and will start rolling from June.
