The South Indian movie media major, Pyramid Saimira, is reported to have withdrawn from making Kamal Hasan’s film Marmayogi.
This film written and to be directed by Kamal Hasan has a star cast that includes Trisha, Venkatesh, Hema Malini and Mumait Khan. This was planned to be a multilingual film-Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi and English.
The initial budget for this ambitious project was around Rs 80 Crores. However as the script was finalized and shooting schedule drafted, it was found that the shooting and the post production works would take at least 350 days, which means increase in the production cost.
Pyramid Saimira estimated that the cost would go upto around Rs 140 Crores and they reportedly came to the conclusion that at that cost, filming of Marmayogi is not viable. Hence, the project is shelved.
