But still the novel is looking fresh and there is lot of scope for heroism if the book has to be converted as a film. Ponner and Shankar are two war heroes in Tamil literature, who are worshiped even today in parts of Tamil Nadu as 'Gods'. Prashanth will play both the role Ponner and Sankar in this film and his father Thyagarajan is going to produce and direct the film.
After a long time, Thyagarajan is producing the film under his own banner Lakshmi Shanthi Movies, which produced hit films like Komberi Mookan, Poovukkul Boogammbam and Salem Vishnu.
Wednesday morning, Prashanth and Thyagarajan formally announced the project in a press meet held at their own premises Prashanth Gold Towers and the shooting will start rolling soon. The film is going to be made on a mega budget, with the best of technicians involved.
