The film Karna, starring Suriya and Janhvi Kapoor and directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, appears to have been shelved.

According to reliable sources, the production company has notified department heads that the film Karna has been canceled.

The film, which cost Rs 350 crores, was inspired by the Mahabharata character Karna and starred Janhvi Kapoor as Draupadi. According to reports, Rs 15 crores were already spent on pre-production and look tests.

Details about Project Cancellation and Cast

Excel Entertainment was set to produce Karna, which would have been Suriya’s first direct Hindi film, sharing the screen with Janhvi Kapoor for the first time. Key actors in the cast were Ali Fazal, Vijay Verma, and Avinash Tiwari. The film attempted to capitalize on the mythological epic by utilizing extensive visual effects and high-quality post-production work.
