The poster features Shruti Haasan riding a horse with a sword in her hand. The long waiting film Sangamithra is going to come most probably in two parts. Sanghamitra, set in the backdrop of India in the 8th century AD, aims to portray some of the most captivating moments from India's glorious history by narrating a fictional tale.

Other technicians of this movie include musician AR Rahman and art director Sabu Cyril. It was also said that the film is about the Sangamithra, whose beauty is unparalleled, and her journey to save her kingdom. Shruti Hassan will play the titular role and the regular shoot will be commenced from August 2017. Oscar-winning composer A R Rahman will do the music for the movie.
