It was recently reported that director Vishnuvardhan is busy visiting many temples, constructed by the Kings who ruled the state of Tamil Nadu years ago, as a part of his research in order to helm his next, which is said to be a historical flick.
The Billa director has joined hands with famed novelist and screenwriter Balakumaran, and the duo is currently in exploration mode as the film will have its backdrop set in the 9th century.
Now, according to the latest speculation that has surfaced, the film will showcase the construction of the famous Brihadeeswarar temple, which is now a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The temple, located in the city of Thanjavur, was built by Raja Raja Chola I and hence the film's lead actor would quite naturally emulate the great King, it is said.
But here is the most interesting part of the whole hypothesis; Thala Ajith might be approached to play the role of Raja Raja Chola.
Given Vishnuvardhan's rapport with the Yennai Arindhaal star, the report that's been doing the rounds might be more than mere speculation.
Stay tuned for further updates regarding this exciting development.
