Sanghamitra is reportedly made under a budget of Rs 150 crore and is produced by Sri Thenandal Films. It will release simultaneously in Telugu and Hindi, reports IANS.
Shruti Haasan, daughter of actors Kamal Haasan and Sarika, was last seen in Katamarayudu opposite Pawan Kalyan. "I look at Pawan Kalyan a little differently from my other co-stars. He worked with me at a time when many others were doubtful of my ability," Shruti told The Hindu. Katamarayudu is a remake of Tamil film Veeram. Earlier this year, she also featured in the blockbuster film Singam 3 opposite Suriya.
Shruti Haasan also stars in the Bollywood film Behen Hogi Teri opposite Rajkummar Rao. The film hits the theatres on May 26.
