Vikram opts out; RS Vimal revives Suryaputra Mahavir Karna with a new team!
After the success of ‘Ennu Ninte Modieen’, director RS Vimal had started works on a mega-budget period film based on the mythological figure Karnan from Mahabharatha. Initially, Prithviraj Sukumaran was announced as the lead actor but he later got replaced by Vikram. Shoot also commenced in 2019 by filming the Kurukshetra battle sequence. On Vikram’s birthday last year, the makers even released a teaser featuring him. However, the project now seems to have been revamped with a new team.
‘Pooja Entertainment’, a Bollywood-based production house that has been in the industry for over two decades, is backing the film now. Titled as ‘Suryaputra Mahavir Karna’, the film is planned to be made in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam languages.
Buzz is that a top hero from Bollywood will be playing the lead role of ‘Karna’. RS Vimal is directing the film that has additional screenplay and dialogues by India’s celebrated poet Dr Kumar Vishwas. Vashu Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, and Jackky Bhagnani are jointly producing this multilingual project.
