After the thunderous success of her recent release ‘Baaghi 2’ (2018), actress Disha Patani has bagged Salman Khan’s multi-starrer movie ‘Bharat’. While ‘Bharat’ is about to begin production in July next month, Disha’s fans haven’t heard much about her much-awaited South Indian movie ‘Sanghamitra’, which was announced much before ‘Bharat’ came into being. The latest we hear that after being put on the backburner for a long time now, director Sundar C’s ambitious project is gearing up to mount the shooting floor in August.
‘Sanghamitra’ is a period love story which stars Disha Patani in the title role while popular South Indian actors Arya and Jayam Ravi have come onboard to play male leads. The mega-budgeted movie was announced at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival in 2017 with Shruti Haasan as the female lead. However, Haasan walked out of the project as it was taking a lot of time getting started. After her exit, Disha came onboard. But even then the project couldn’t hit the floor for a series of reasons. But now, the team is all psyched up about commencing the shoot from August. According to reports, Sundar C will start calling the shots in August and the shooting will continue to progress till the end of the year. If all goes as planned, the makers may lock a release date for mid-2019.
According to sources, the makers are planning to spend like a sailor on the making of the historical drama. Reportedly, huge sets have been erected in Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad to shoot some important portions of the movie. Besides Disha, Arya and Jayam Ravi, a number of Tamil actors have also been roped in to play significant roles in the period drama.
