We are now told that the movie will have chief officer Prashanth commanding an infantry of a mammoth 30000 warriors and a proud cavalry of 3000 horses who will succumb to the demands of their master.

The movie is filming it’s final scenes which is being monitored by the special VFX team set up by Prashanth himself in the desserts of Rajasthan.(suddenly desserts seem a cool place to hangout).One of our local messengers who visited the sets told us that the sets erected are never before seen ones, extensive in both size and style.

Divya Parameswaran, Prakash Raj, Sneha,Rajkiran, Napoleon, Kushboo, Vadivelu, Vijayakumar, Lakshmi and Seetha are the lucky few to be part of this project.Maestro Ilayaraja will be tapping in on all the right notes for this mega offering scripted by our honorary Chief Minister.

Another interesting fact is that leading gold retailer Joy Alukkas will be providing all authentic gold jewelry in the scenes unlike the fake gold we see in movies and 80 % of the movie is said to be VFX and special effects.
