Historical movies require much higher budget than normal movies. It consumes a lot of time and investment. This obviously makes one wonder whether it is a good idea to work on such massive projects when the economy is in a bad shape across the globe.

However, industry insiders say that Vijay is committed to a few filmmakers which will keep him busy for the next two years. So, the situation might return to normalcy when his historical project with Sasikumar might take off.
