Shruti Haasan has backed out of multi-lingual project Sangamithra. Set in the 8th century AD, the movie, is a tale of the trials and tribulations of Sangamithra and her journey to save her kingdom.
The actress along with filmmaker Sundar C, had recently launched the first poster of the film at Cannes Film Festival.
"Shruti has, unfortunately, had to take a call not to be part of 'Sangamithra'. Knowing it was a massive undertaking and a long commitment spanning over two years, she knew the importance of her training, a comprehensive script and proper date calendar," a statement from Shruti's spokesperson read.
The actress had already started combat training for her role of a warrior princess in the movie.
"Despite her enthusiasm and commitment to 'Sangamithra', she has had to give the film a miss since she had not received a proper bound script nor a proper date calendar," he said.
In a recent interview with PTI, the actress had said her role in Sangamithra was going to be "physically very demanding for me. It is challenging, something that I have never done before. It is a fantasy epic film and it has a lot of layers."
Shruti, 31, is currently busy promoting her upcoming Hindi film Behen Hogi Teri.
