She had to give the film a miss since she had not received a proper bound script nor a proper date calendar.
Mumbai: Shruti Haasan was all set to be a warrior princess and even underwent some rigorous physical training for the same in London for ‘Sanghamitra’ film by director Sundar C.
However, the actress is no longer a part of the project.
Official statement from Shruti’s spokesperson revealed, “Shruti has had to unfortunately take a call not to be part of Sangamithra. Knowing it was a massive undertaking and a long commitment spanning over 2 years, she knew the importance of her training, a comprehensive script and proper date calendar. She hired and started training with one of best combat trainers April onwards to make sure she was ready in time for shoot. Despite her enthusiasm and commitment to Sangamithra, she has had to give the film a miss since she had not received a proper bound script nor a proper date calendar. She is currently caught up with promoting her Hindi film Behen Hogi Teri, prep for Sabash Naidu and her musical associations.”
Set to go into production later this year, the upcoming film, ‘Sanghamitra’, a tale of valour, treachery and love, was formally announced here by Thendanal Studios Ltd, a Chennai-based filmed entertainment outfit that co-hosted the Cannes Film Market’s opening night party.
The first instalment of the two-part magnum opus will be ready for release by the end of 2018, director Sundar C has revealed.
