Tamil filmmaker, Sundar Cs mega-budget period film, Sanghamitra, which has been in the pipeline for some time now, looks to be finally taking shape, and how. The title character is based on Emperor Ashokas daughter, and will require someone of repute and considerable talent to portray the role. Surprisingly, Sundar C has decided to look for this person not in Kollywood but from Bollywood shores.
Word is that the filmmaker has approached one of Bollywoods leading actresses, Deepika Padukone, for the pivotal role, and shes giving it serious thought. If anything does transpire, itll be Deepikas second Tamil film after starring opposite superstar Rajinikanth in 2014s Kochadaiiyan.
Sundar C is keen to make Sanghamitra as a trilingual. Jayam Ravi has been approached for the Tamil version after Vijay declined the offer due to date issues while Mahesh Babu is been courted for the Telugu version.
