Filmmaker Gunasekhar recently announced a prestigious mythological magnum opus, titled Shaakuntalam. The film is based on the epic tale of love from the Adi Parva of the epic Mahabharata.
In a latest interview, Gunasekhar revealed that his film is based on Mahakavi Kalidas’ greatest drama, Abhigyana Shaakuntalam, which narrates the love story of King Dushyanta and Shaakuntala. Furthermore, the film will be set in the Himalayas, but a major portion of the production will be completed using computer graphics.
Gunasekhar further said that he had completed the scripting in 8 months and that he is looking for an actress who has grace and acting skills to play Shaakuntala. He said that he chose to he Shaakuntalam keeping aside Rana’s Hiranyakasyapa as it requires a lot of crowd for battle scenes.
