RS Vimal of Ennu Ninte Moideen fame has revealed that he is planning to rope in a Hollywood actor to play ‘Bheema’ in his Hindi epic film ‘Mahavir Karna’ starring Vikram in the lead role. Vimal also opened up on why he didn’t continue the film with Prithviraj. The director said that Prithviraj is fully occupied with his directorial film and that’s why he approached Chiyaan Vikram.
“When I approached Vikram, he asked me that already Tamil audiences have seen Sivaji Ganesan’s Karnan and senior NTR’s film based on the same story is also quite popular in Telugu so how different Mahavir Karna is going to be? But after knowing my research for the film, he readily agreed”, said RS Vimal in a recent media interaction.
RS Vimal also said that he is planning to shoot Mahavir Karna in many scenic locations including Niagara. United Film Kingdom has agreed to produce the film at a humongous budget of 300cr.
