It’s official that Chiyaan Vikram has bagged this biggie ‘Mahavir Karna’, which will be produced by the United Film Kingdom, a New York-based production house. The director has announced that he is likely to cast a Hollywood actor to play ‘Bheema’ in this multilingual project.The film is set to be made in a whopping 300 crore budget. And this mega-budget multilingual film will be directed by RS Vimal and the shoot for this historic period film will kick-start by October this year and the release is likely to be in December 2019.
RS Vimal told, actor Prithviraj was replaced as he is busy with his directorial project and thus chose actor Vikram. “When I approached Vikram, he asked me that already Tamil audiences have seen Sivaji Ganesan’s Karnan and senior NTR’s film based on the same story is also quite popular in Telugu so how different Mahavir Karna is going to be? But after knowing my research for the film, he readily agreed”, said RS Vimal in a recent media interaction. He also said the shoot of Mahavir Karna will happen in many picturesque locations like Niagara.
