Filmmaker Sundar C's Rs 150-crore mega budget Tamil historic drama 'Sanghamitra' -- which stars Arya, Jayam Ravi and Shruti Haasan in the lead -- will roll from July 3, a source said.
'The pre-production has been happening for the last three months. The lead actors have already started training in sword-fighting and horse-riding. Shruti has been taking special fighting lessons. The makers are planning to go on the floors on July 3,' a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Shruti, who plays a pivotal role, tweeted last week that she has started taking fighting lessons as part of her preparation for her role.
Shruti had told IANS: 'It's going to be the biggest project of my career. It will give me an opportunity to attempt something I haven't done before.'
Produced by Sri Thenandal Films, the film will also be released in Telugu and Hindi.
'It will be simultaneously made in Telugu. In Hindi, however, it will be made with an entirely different cast and the process will take time,' the source added.
