The producer of Kashmora - an upcoming film starring Karthi, Nayantara and Sri Divya in the lead, has said the movie, which has been made at a lavish budget, is a lot like SS Rajamouli's Magadheera.
"This is a film like 'Magadheera', so we are taking one step at a time to get perfection in terms of VFX and CG," producer SR Prabhu told Deccan Chronicle.
According to film-maker Prabhu, Kashmora is a movie of different genres. Primarily a supernatural horror thriller, the Gokul-directed film will also have a period portion, on the lines of Magadheera.
Karthi In 3 Roles
According to a report, Karthi will be playing 3 different roles in the movie. A contemporary youth, king and mysterious man with his head tonsured.
Nayantara As Princess
If sources are to go by, Nayantara will be seen playing a princess in the film. Sri Divya, who is the second heroine, will essay the role of a journalist, it is said.
Kashmora is said to be Karthi's costliest film thus far. According to a report, the movie has been made with a lavish budget of over 65 Crore rupees.
After considering many names, actress Sri Divya was finally roped in to play an investigative journalist. This is the first time Sri Divya has been paired opposite Karthi.
SR Prabhu's Next
Talking about his upcoming movie Joker, which will release this Friday, producer Prabhu has said, "This is not a regular entertainer. The film has come out well and it is up to the audience to decide if more films of this genre can come or not."
Understandably, the project has been in the post-production stage for quite a while now. But the makers of Kashmora are in no hurry to release the film.
"This film will be a celebration on screen. You name any genre and we've covered it in the film. Since it's a mega-budget film and a multi-starrer, we are eyeing a Deepavali release."
Apart from the main cast Kashmora has Vivek playing Karthi's father and the likes of Siddharth Vipin and Jangiri Madhumitha in supporting roles.
The first look poster of Kashmora will be unveiled this month.
"After a long time, Karthi will be portraying an interesting and challenging role. He has put in his heart and soul for the film. The first look of the film will be released this August," the producer has said.
