Belgium-based Corsan has boarded Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai’s historical epic “Singularity” in a joint deal with India’s Neelmudra Entertainment.

But with Corsan producing and funding, pic, with a budget of about $35 million, is slated to start principal photog-raphy in January in India and South Africa.

Story is set across two time periods and continents. Plot involves a British officer in colonial India who falls in love with an Indian (Rai), and an American marine biologist struggling to save his research partner who is trapped in the wreckage of a colonial Brit merchant ship.
