Karnan, the highly anticipated epic drama will start rolling in March 2017. The movie, which stars young actor Prithviraj in the title role, is written and directed by journalist-director RS Vimal.
If the reports are to be true, the team is planning to release in about 5000 theatres worldwide. According to Vimal, the movie will be released as a multi-lingual, in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, and English.
The director also claims that Karnan will be the most expensive film of the Indian film industry. Reportedly, the much-awaited movie has been made with a whopping budget of 300 Crores.
Earlier, it was rumoured that Prithviraj has backed out from the film, doubting the feasibility of such a big project, in an industry like Mollywood. But, director Vimal bitterly slammed the rumours.
Karnan will feature an ensemble star cast, including the actors from Bollywood, Tamil and Telugu industries. Rumour mills suggest that some prominent stars, including Prakashraj, are already in talks for the project.
Baahubali cinematographer KK Senthil Kumar has been roped in as the director of photography. Gopi Sundar composes the songs and background score. The project is produced by Venu Kunnapally for Kavya Films.
