This 70th Cannes Film Festival is also going to see the Oscar winning music composer A.R.Rahman with the lead cast of ‘Sangamithra’. He’ll be walking the red carpet on the 17th of May.
Rahman talked about his Cannes outing in a statement saying, “I’m very excited working on this ambitious project ‘Sangamithra’. I am looking forward to joining the team at Cannes.”
‘Sangamithra’ is going to see Shruti Haasan in the title role, while Jayam Ravi and Arya are the chief male protagonists. The film is directed by Sundar C and produced by Thenandal Studios and the music is composed by A.R.Rahman.
Producer Narayanan Ramasamy, Chairman, and Managing Director, Thenandal Studios, said: “This is an ambitious epic period film under the Thenandal Studios banner and we are so proud to have on board India’s pride A.R. Rahman for this film. This is a very prestigious project for us. The Cannes unveil with Rahman sir, Sabu sir, Sundar sir and the entire lead cast is just the beginning of the many milestones that ‘Sangamithra’ is going to achieve with time — for Tamil and Indian cinema.”
The team will resume the pre-production preparations of the film after they return from Cannes, which is expected to go on floors in August.
