Director Shankar talks about 'Ai'... 'my 3 years effort'
One of the most leading film-makers of Tamil cinema, Director Shankar says in a recent interview that “‪#‎I‬ will be an important film in my career. It is my magnum opus film.

I narrated the script to many actors. I don’t want to reveal the name of those actors. Since I demanded lot of dates from them, they rejected the film. I had no hatred towards them.

But when I approached ‪#‎Vikram‬, he readily accepted the offer and promised me that he can allocate me any number of days for me. Moreover he has not received a single rupee till date as salary. He insisted to pay him just after the release of ‘I’.

Vikram’s Performance had really came out very well and he deserves awards for his performance. The work done by ‘Weta Workshop’ was excellent. ‘I’ Script has double weight-age than ‘Anniyan’. ‘I’ is my 3 years effort. I started to pen the script after completing my ‘Enthiran’ in 2010. It took more than 1 year to complete the entire script.

I want to delight the audience on theatres. I don’t want to reveal the excellent visualization of the film in teasers (or) trailers. I want every audience to watch the film in theatres.

I promised the audience that ‘Anniyan’ will be more exciting more and more, when you repeatedly watch the film. As per my promise, movie also did the magic.

I promise the same in ‘I’. I am expecting repeat audience for the film. My earlier films ‘Anniyan’ & ‘Enthiran’ took the Tamil Cinema to next level. I hope ‘I’ will also do the same.

I am planning to release the film big in Hindi too. I want to raise the Tamil Cinema standards to a higher level by releasing in many languages. The works are going on at a rapid pace. The film will be releasing soon!”


  1. SORRY shankarji
    Vikram failure star despite good actor
    no entertainment tax
    film unduly delayed
    overbuildup and expectaion high budget
    galla kattuma santhegamthaan

  2. oidhukkuthaan overa aadakkoodathu
    Manirathinathukku oru ravanan
    shankarukku I

  3. Anniyan was due to excellent Dialogue by SUJATHA
    good music by HARRIS

  4. Nof an base for vikram
    padam naalirunthaal odum
    ilayel pannaal

  5. AI endra ego will not win

  6. HEROVUKKU panam koduthachcha
    ascar nilami paavam
    dorector financing the film
    padam vaangaravanga yosikkavendiayadhu
    ascar performance endralum padam odanum
    not much fan base
    no tax exemption
    competition from rajni film
    threeyeras old film
    take care distributors theatre owners

  7. Enthiran thaks to rajni
    idhu vikramin ravananthan

  8. enthiran is rajni magic
    shnakr and rajni combo
    can never be compared
    i appreciate shanr self confidence
    my feeling is it is overconfidence
    let us see
    wish lady of luck smile at vikram who is starved of any success despite talent
    my concern is whether film will see its breakeven despite all these
    one million dollar question

  9. AI padam area vithaal vikram will get his salary
    Aascar 3 films finished long ago waiting for release
    AI has to be finished by shankar the financier
    Why all these problems
    no planning no thinking high expectation
    kaala vaarinaaal avvalavuthaan

  10. Vikram is the one of the best actors in the tamil cinema. Talent did not work in tamil cinema. Only luck will works i.e already with the commercial actors like Vijay, Ajith etc. Mad fans of the commercial actors will take up the movie to the success and the take the tamil film industry to the utter failure.
