He also visited many temples that were under the rule of Cholas, one of the biggest emperors of South India. The construction of the famous Thanjavur temple would be the main plot in the flick.

Ajith and Vishnuvardhan had earlier teamed up in blockbuster “Billa” and hit film “Arrambam.” However, the actor is not new to this genre as he was earlier part of Bollywood period film “Asoka” starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor.
