K Madhu said: “Since we are dealing with a historical figure we cannot twist the facts. But the king’s life is full of drama and intrigue. Think of the Battle of Colachel, the legendary war against the Dutch. He is basically a warrior so I don’t think the film will be a stark deviation from my favourite genre.”
