Look why Shruti Haasan left “Sangamithra”
Written by Pallavi Parmar

Sangamithra is the upcoming Tamil based epic historical fiction starring Shruti Haasan in the lead role, but now as per the reports, she is no longer part of this Sangamithra movie. Movie depicts the tale of late 8th century AD, telling the trials and tribulations of the protagonist Sangamithra, whose beauty is unparalleled, and her journey to save her kingdom.

It is a story of many kingdoms, many equations, many relationships, told in an ambitious, larger than life, visually extravagant manner. According to reports, the film revolves around Shruti Haasan, who plays the titular character in the film , but now Thenandal Films is unable to work with her in this movie due to some unavoidable undisclosed circumstances.

Sangamithra is epic historical fiction war film which is directed by Sundar C. and written by Subha . Shruti Haasan was in the lead roles with Jayam Ravi and Arya earlier . But now Shruti Haasan is no longer part of this big budgeted multi-lingual film. The film was recently in the news as it was announced that its first look will be unveiled at the Cannes Film Festival. The leading cast, music composer AR Rahman, director Sundar C and art director Sabu Cyril are said to be attending the festival. Shruti Hasan trained hard for her role. She has taken up physical combat training and sword fighting to prepare for the role.

Tamil cinema, which has been conspicuous by its absence at The French Riviera all these years, is making a major splash at the 70th Cannes Film Festival thanks to a hotly anticipated Rs 250-crore period drama that promises to outstrip ‘Bahubali’ in terms of scale and grandeur. Set to go into production later this year, the upcoming film, ‘Sangamithra’, a tale of valour, treachery and love, was formally announced here by Thendanal Studios Ltd, a Chennai-based filmed entertainment outfit that co-hosted the Cannes Film Market’s opening night party.
