Mahavir Karna is the upcoming film, which is to be directed by Mollywood director RS Vimal
. The director helmed the super hit Malayalam film, Ennu Ninte Moideen
with Prithviraj Sukumaran
and Parvathi Menon
in the lead roles. Vimal and Prithvi announced the project Karnan and also had a grandeur launch in Dubai. Later, due to the dates issue, Prithvi couldn’t do Karnan. So, the director approached Chiyaan Vikram
. But Vikram said that as the role had been beautifully done by Sivaji Ganesan
and “N T Rama Rao,” he might not have anything new to do with the role. But, RS Vimal explained him about his three years research on Karnan. After hearing the research history, Chiyaan agreed to do the film. It is heard that a Hollywood actor would be doing the role of Bheema. Mahavir Karna will be shot with multilingual actors and will be released in almost all the popular languages. The budget for the film is Rs. 300 crores.
