While Prasad will pen the story, SS Rajamouli's associate A. Mahadev will direct this project.

"When I heard the one liner from Prasad sir, it was good enough for me to come on board. I have known him for long, even before Baahubali came out. I'm quite aware of his experience, so naturally I'm thrilled to be working with him," Lawrence told IANS.

The film's story will be set against the backdrop of 18 and 19 century.

To be bankrolled by Cameo Films, the project will be made in Tamil and Telugu.

"We strongly believe this film would be a greater milestone in our journey. Especially, what else can we ask for when a versatile writer like Vijayendra Prasad, the backbone of Baahubali success, being associated with our project," producer Jayakumar told IANS.

Kajal Aggarwal is the front-runner for the leading lady's role. The rest of the cast and crew will be finalised soon.
