The action-oriented drama revolves around Sonakshi's character and will see her to attend a 30-day workshop prior to the shoot.
Sonakshi will be seen playing a college student in this film and most of her action scenes will be based on the Indian martial arts tradition from Kerala.
"I have a great working relationship with the production house and I'm excited to collaborate on a Bollywood project with them. My film with Sonakshi is based on a story which is close to my heart and has a very personal and powerful message for all Indian women," Murugadoss said in a statement.
The director said Sonakshi's role will be on the lines of what Angelina Jolie did in 'Lara Croft'.
