There were a slew of larger than life films announced after the humongous success of Bahubali. Mohanlal’s ‘Mahabharat’, Allu Arvinds ‘Ramayan’ were in a thought phase itself, but Sangamitra team went ahead and released promotional pics of Shruthi Hasan, Arya and Jayam Ravi in lead roles.
They seem to have hit a stumbling block and below is the official announcement from Sri Thenandal Films confirming that Shruthi is no longer part of the project.
Due to unavoidable circumstances, we are unable to proceed working with Shruti Haasan in Sangamithra.

These kind of films require a great level of compatibility between the maker and the lead actors. It once again reaffirms the great bonhomie shared by Prabhas and Rajamouli.
Directed by C.Sunder, the search is on for a new Sangamithra.
