Sundar C has been busy planning his magnus opus Sanghamitra which is said to rival Baahubali and Enthiran, both in terms of budget and scale of grandeur. The film which has already locked in the technical team is finding it hard to find the cast. Reportedly Suriya was approaced and he even liked the script but he dropped the project. Later Vijay was approached, he also did not sign as the project as it requires him to dedicate one year and he can’t face another debacle like Puli. Now its is learnt that Jayam Ravi has been roped in for the project. Speculations are rife that the Thani Oruvan star will most likely sign it.
It should be noted that Jayam Ravi is currently busy with Bogan and has already agreed to do Thani Oruvan sequel with brother Mohan Raja, a project with A L Vijay and is also doing a film with Gautham Menon. How he will adjust Sanghamitra with his current projects is a mystery. The film is a multilingual and each language will have a different hero. Another rumor is that Mahesh Babu has been approached for the Telugu version. It seems unlikely as he is busy with A R Murugadoss’s project till next year and after which he has signed on Koratala Siva.
