Shruti essays the role of a warrior princess in filmmaker Sundar C's mega budget tri-lingual drama. The actor has been training with a professional sword fighting expert and action choreographer in London.

"I was so glad to have this opportunity to learn a new physical art form. After having martial arts as part of my life early on, sword fighting was a whole new experience which was physically and mentally engaging and exhilarating," Shruti said in a statement.

Also starring Arya and Jayam Ravi, the film will be made on a budget of Rs 150 crore. Produced by Sri Thenandal Films, it will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The film is touted as the 100th film of Sri Thenandal Films. Hindustan Times reports that while the film will be simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu, there will be an entirely different star cast in the Hindi version that will take more time.

Haasan will begin shooting for the film next month. The music of the film will be composed by AR Rahman.
