For quite some time now, it was widely speculated that Suriya may join hands with film-maker Sundar C for a big budget, historical flick on the lines of Telugu films Magadheera and Baahubali.
Putting an end to all rumours, the Aranmanai director, in his latest Red Carpet interview to IndiaGlitz, has said no actors have been confirmed as of now and that the film is a mega budget entertainer, which will exceed the budget of Baahubali and Rajinikanth's 2.0.
"This is Thenandal Films' prestigious movie as it is their 100th production. Only art director Sabu Cyril and VFX supervisor Kamala Kannan have been signed in. Rest of the cast and crew will be officially announced in a month's time," Sundar told Sreedhar Pillai.
When asked about initiating talks with Suriya, Sundar termed it as a mere media speculation and added that the historical movie will have a "very big and fantastic star cast" from three different film industries as the movie will be a Tamil-Telugu-Hindi trilingual.
The 48-year-old film-maker went on to say that scripting work for the film started 7 months ago with writers like Bhadri Narayanan and Prapanchan, a recepient of Njanapeedam Award, working on it.
Sundar says it will take at least a couple of years to complete the film.
"Since a project like this demands lot of concentration and work, it will take 2 years to complete the film. We have already begun the CG works in countries like USA, UK and Denmark. Also, I will not commit myself to any other project until I complete this," he has said.
Sundar C also awaits the release of Muthina Kathirikai, an official remake of Malayalam movie Vellimoonga.
Directed by Venkat Raghavan, this film has Sundar C and Poonam Bajwa in the lead roles. It also stars Vaibhav, Sathish and Kiran Rathod in important roles.
