Vimal hires Game of Thrones technicians for his Rs. 300 crore venture, Mahavir Karna


On Monday, director R.S. Vimal hosted a special puja at Padmanabha Swamy temple in Thiruvananthapuram, before kick-starting the production of his most ambitious film, titled Mahavir Karna. The ceremony was attended by several Mollywood celebrities including Suresh Gopi, Indrans and B Unnikrishnan.

However, the main focus of the puja was the temple bell, which will further be a part of the film. The venerated bell will be taken to Hyderabad by Vimal for the shooting. It will be used to decorate the 30-feet chariot, which is being built at the Ramoji Film City.

According to reports, the estimated budget of this mythological drama is Rs 300 crore, which will make it more expensive than Baahubali: The Conclusion (cost Rs 250 crore). “The producers have already hired technicians of Game of Thrones fame to work on the project,” a source close to the filmmakers confirmed.

The film is expected to have brilliant visual effects that will be created both in domestic and international studios. Vikram, who will be essaying the lead role, is expected to join the sets in January next year. “The filmmakers have plans to release the film in the first half of 2020,” the source said.

Meanwhile, the makers are tight-lipped on the star cast. “Producers have roped in leading actors from the Indian film industry and Hollywood. All the details will be revealed in January,” added the source.

Produced by The United Film Kingdom, the film will be originally shot in Hindi. It is based on the epic Mahabharata and is Vimal's second directorial outing after biographical romantic drama Ennu Ninte Moideen in 2015. Please share your views in the comment's section below.
