And the Karikalan troubles continue for Vikram! Reportedly the producers are planning to replace the director of the film. Buzz is that Kannan will be replaced by A.R. Gandhikrishna, who's originally said to have written the script. However producer S.S. Vasan, one of the film's producers, clarified that director Kannan will definitely be in the film but there are plans to change the cinematographer and few technicians in the team.

The film belongs to the genre of movies like Gladiator and Troy. According to sources, the film will have the right mix of period and contemporary elements. Zarine Khan (of Veer fame) will play the female lead while Harris Jayaraj will compose the music.
