Hi every-1… ubks…

Thanks for the great response for Stanwinston Post. There were lot of good wishes and queries about Rajini Sir. There is so much to tell, there were much queries about ARR, Ash and others too. I’ll share one by one in further posts.

Many of Vijay and Ajith fans wanted to know when I am going to do a film with them. Already I had ideas of doing “Mudhalvan” with Vijay (next to Rajini Sir). Unfortunately it didn’t happen. After “Nayak” I had a thought of doing a film with Ajith. With out even meeting it dissolved and didn’t happen. I don’t know which language and what kind of script I am going to do next. If the script suits Vijay or Ajith, I’ll definitely do a film with them.

Regarding my production S Pictures “Rettai Chuzhi” and “Anandhapurathu Veedu” both the films are completed and final Post-Production works are going on.

In “Rettai Chuzhi” two icons of tamil cinema director “K.Balachandar” and director “Bharathi Raja” for the first time acting lead roles together. “Rettai Chuzhi” is the story of two famous old men in the village who are currently child ego state. When they try to outburst their 40 years enemity thinking that of a big scene, it ends up like a child’s play. Aari trained in “Koothupattarai” gets intorduced as hero and the heroine is the “Kattradhu Tamizh” fame Anjali. 22 trained child actors are playing important role in this film. Chezhian is doing the cinematography and music by Karthik Raja.

Thamira has directed the film who is basically a story writer for magazines. With his experience also as KB’s dialogue writer, he has arcthitected this “Rettai Chuzhi” film as interesting one. So you can easily guess that “Rettai Chuzhi” will make a new experience for the family audience.

m leaving to mumbai for 2 days shoot with Rajini sir, Ash and Danny Dengzongpa…

See you soon

  53. rahul says:

    Hi! sir . i’m rahul of age 13. i saw your robo (3 times). i liked it very very much.
    Now , I heard that your are going to remake the film 3 idiots.
    firstly i heard that in telugu ur going to do the film with mahesh. then i’ve heard that he’s out of it and ur doing it with surya.
    but i think the character of my favorite aamir best suits to ram charan tej (son of chiranjeevi). so , please do the film with R.C.T (Ram Charan Tej).
    it’s tough for you to see my comment before you start the shooting of 3 idiots as there are 382 comments before mine.
    by god’s grace if u see my comment before u start the shooting of 3 idiots , please do the film with R.C.T .
    if u had seen his recent movie “orange” , U WOULD HAVE SAID THE SAME THING.

ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR FUTURE PROJECTS.

    Hi, Shanker sir, what is your next project, after robo.
    i am from hyderabad. I became a big fan of you from the day when i watched the your movie gentelmen.

    thank you sir,
    yours sincerely.

  89. N.SATISH says:

    I am very thrilled to watch a superstar movie next month. some say the movie will release on Sept 24th. others say on Oct 9th(ur lucky day?). release it evn in november or december. the movie should be very grand and rich.
    u can have a very wide release where in some countries the movie can be subtitled in english. in those places you can edit the songs and releae the movie so that people can watch it within 130 mins to 150 mins. this could generate a hugh revenue to indian cinema going forward.
    all the best sir!!

  98. Sunil Aravindakshan says:

    Hi Sir

    I loved all your films because they are thought provoking and visually stunning, especially with Gentleman, Indian and Mudhalvan. These three scripts were extremely new and breath of fresh air. Sir there are rumors saying you are doin 3idiots remake after Endhiran is it true? becoz you keep saying u are not going to decide anything until u have finished the work with endhiran. If you are doin 3 idiots remake please don’t make it a remake, make it a inspired from 3 idiots, this is only for you, if any other director, they could do a proper remake. Please please do a film with Ilayathalapathy Vijay sir, massive fan of him, we are waiting for one such film, but i would not want it to be a remake, but a fresh scrip like gentleman. Thank you for all the great movie. all of them were entertaining and 4 of them were thought provoking (Gentleman, Indian, Mudhalvan and Anniyan). Take care sir and all the best with the future projects

  99. Balaji says:

    Sir, is it confirmed that you are doing 3I with Vijay.. I am a fan of Vijay and we fans want you direct the movie for Vijay.. Fans like me will watch the film @ least 10 times in theaters if you do it… I hope you will come out with an official announcement about this project after Diwali.. Aal izz Well…. :)

    Dear Sir,

    Unlike Steven spielberg, James cameron’s high budget movies always have a soul in it (other than big time action/graphics) like a love or emotional feel attached (True lies, Titanic,Avatar..etc). James has the desi touch esp kollywood :D .
    So instead calling you as James cameron of kollywood….we call him as the Shankar of Hollywood ( we love you, so you are on top for us :D ).

    Who is your Favorite hollywood director & actor ?? Hope to see a interesting reply :)

    Before my comments have couple of points to this website IT team
    1. If we type a message in this website “ASK ME- option” it displays nowhere
    2. The current response page is been chosen directly from the Google link.
    Hi Shankar,: Primarily my above points are for your information too..
    My comments :
    Your silence towards Sharukkhan/ Ayangarn moved out of this project shows your maturity & professionalisim.Keep it up. I can understand how hard to convince Indian producers & actors for a big film from their conservative thinking.
    More then your movie’s/directorial skills I like your approach in such things.I luv sujatha & really, desperatly missing him in this & in your future movies.

    Pragmatic ideas +Hard work +Good Presentation + Adequate Marketing will make a movie rock.. take ur time & deliver enthiran with the required attributes..

    My Best wishes , support & luv to u always..

  147. trishna says:

    Im looking forward to your next film.

    I think that in this generation (ue:excluding Kamal and Rajini)the best actors are Vikram and Suriya.
    I’m saying this because they are the most versatile actors in our generation. They are willing to do any types of films and are not stereotyped.

    It would be great to see them under your direction, esp Suriya, since we’ve seen Vikram’s AMAZING ANNIYAN.
    Or how about Vikram and Suriya together again (after Bala’s Pithamagan)?

    All the best.

    There is no lie in that,movie loving people and media are also waiting to watch and review your own production films “Rettai Chuzhi” and “Anandhapurathu Veedu” . Hope both will get good reviews and be a good box office hit….and too Ungal Pocket’um niramba vazhthukkal as u are a MUDALEEDAR :-)

    Hi, Mr.Director, I am a fan of Maniratnam, A R Rahman and Shankar.I think in my point of view your best experiment so far is Kadhalan.I still like the movie and never get bored, also i liked the movie Boys.I liked the boys title design which is fresh and very young.I am a graphic designer with some good hands on Photoshop and Illustrator.I like to work more on the entertainment industry even if its a graphic job.I would be very happy to work with you.It would be a great oppurtunity to learn lot of things from you.I don’t expect anything other than that i could learn from you.

    Thanks & Regards,

  162. Rajinkanth says:

    Hey Shankar, How do Indian Celebrities handle the other side of life?It must be tough for you guys to carry the fame all day and when you’re by yourself on the bed – Have you thought how do you handle if you’re left alone without laurels/critics or any limelights? In India, cricketers & silver screen people have huge fan following which may be good at times but from personal/family perspective, it may be tough to handle especially when you and your mind by yourself. He or She may be cricketer or Hockey star or Cinema star but once these kind of fames takes you to a high point, you may have to build a counter-reactive personality to handle it well. This question is not to discourage you. I respect you fully and your achievements. I guess you’re coming from non-film backgrund you’ve gone past your own milestones but how does it feel when you think the laurels/critics/fames/domestic help stops one day and how do you guys develop a counter force to develop to attack it. In India, its more important to please others at all times rather than making onself happy. I am sure its very sensitive industry as well and truth may not be well supported in movie industry. Especially your family must be more worried and anxious about your stature. Do you do Yoga or take any sort personality management course?

    Sorry if this question discomforts you. Like I said before I feel good about your movies and gives us Delight to watch your movies.

    Good luck to you and your family.

    Thanks, Rajinikanth

    Hi Sir,

    I have lots of question to ask you… but i am sure you wont have the time to answer all of it… since so many of them before have been asking… just two questions…

    1. I am from Malaysia and very much interested in learning how to direct a movie… If i were to become your assistant director.. what qualification you require? I hope you would answer this…

    2. Bringing both rajini and kamal is tough job and requires a good director… why cant you do it? since robo was intially meant for kamal, maybe you can bring him in for a few scenes or something… since having both of them together throughout a movie is so not possible…

    Hope you would reply…



  166. Vicson V says:

    Hello Mr.Shankar,

    Its needless to appreciate your work, you are simply making us proud. Avatar, was one of the movies which took my breath away. It would be a fitting reward to your career, if you can make a movie of that scale, ofcourse in Tamil. 3D, might not be really necessary, but a out-of-the-world script which has never been handled would be awesome and the use of technology to the fullest. I want to see a Tamil movie that makes people stand and watch. I dont think its possible by anyone other than you, who pays soo much attention to details and takes a lot of risk.

    All the best for Endhiran, may I know when its audio will be out? (Hoping it to be better than Vinnaithandi Varuvaya, it was not ground breaking from ARR.)

    Take Care & God Bless.
    - Vicson.

    Hello Sir:

    Seems Enthiran is the highest budget film ever in India. My heartly wishes for your hard work and taking the tamil cinema to the next level.

    Sir please put some hard work for the movie piracy too sir. We as a fans are in a position to encourage directors like you who is dying for their films.
    Undoubtedly we will support you always sir.
    Please let us know the approx release date for enthiran sir.

    All your films which you are producing was ultimate hits and my question is

    1. Do you select the directors story wise or someother thing?

    we heard that for movie erram you asked ur director to do some sample shots..

  171. Thiru says:

    How has Rahman music has come up for the film ? Since different kind of film the way it goes by it seems Rahman compositions also will be much different.

    For your film I liked the background music of Rahman which was so apt and sometimes it tells how you feel.

    For your film which one you will rate best for Rahman’s compositions?

    I rate Kadalan,Jeans and Mudalvan as his best compositions for your film so far..

    Hello Sir,

    I am a great fan of movies, especially yours. I have always felt the urge to compare your movie making style with Mr. James Cameron’s, not so much about what subjects you both deal with but how you deal with them. The movies that u make come in complete packages, especially how you end them. There are movies which leave you with an empty feeling the way they end especially with a lot of action and vibrancy in the beginning and in the middle but they end in a very insipid fashion, which is very disappointing. The way you treat your subject and filmmaking style never ceases to amaze me. I am just staring wide-eyed at the movies that you make and wondering how your mind works to spin such remarkable stories in such a way that you always manage to get your audience’s pulse pounding and leaving them asking for more. I would love to see how you work first hand if it is indeed possible. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you for entertaining us; :) that is all I can say.

    Thanks & Regards
    Karthik S.

Whats your idea on this,Sir.

    ஷங்கர் சார்…

    நேற்று சுஜாதா அவர்களின் நினைவஞ்சலி கூட்டத்துக்கு வந்திருந்தேன். உங்கள் பேச்சு மிக ஆத்மார்த்தமாக இருந்தது. பேசி முடித்த உடனே, வெளியேறி தாங்கள் ‘எத்தனை பிஸியாக இருக்கிறோம்’ என்று காட்டிக் கொள்ளும் நபர்களுக்கு மத்தியில், முதலிலேயே வந்தமர்ந்து, இறுதியாக வெளியேறிய தங்கள் பண்பு, உங்கள் மீதான மரியாதையை உயர வைத்தது.

    எனக்கு சுஜாதா அவர்களுடன் மிக நெருக்கமான பழக்கமில்லை. ஆனால் இரண்டு முறை சந்தித்து, சில மணி நேரங்கள் பேசும் வாய்ப்பு கிடைத்தது. அந்த இரண்டு சந்திப்புகளின் பலன், என்னை ஒரு பத்திரிகை ஆசிரியராகவே உயர்த்தியது. குறைந்த அறிமுகம் கொண்ட எனக்கும்கூட அவர் அவ்வளவு பெரிய உதவியைச் செய்தார். தாங்கள் பேசும்போது எனக்கு கண்களில் நீர்த்திரையிட்டது.

    தாங்கள் நேற்று பேசியதை முடிந்தவரை அப்படியே தந்திருக்கிறேன், ஒரு செய்தியாக.

    தங்களுக்கு அது மகிழ்ச்சியை அளிக்கும் என்ற நம்பிக்கையில் தருகிறேன்.

    என்பெயரும் எஸ் ஷங்கர்தான் என்பதில் கூடுதல் சந்தோஷம்…!

    சூப்பர் ஸ்டார் ரஜினி நடிக்கும் எந்திரன் படத்துக்கு அமரர் சுஜாதா எழுதியுள்ள வசனங்கள் புதிய பிரமிப்பையும் வியப்பையும் அளிப்பதாக உள்ளன என்றார் படத்தின் இயக்குநர் ஷங்கர்.

    தமிழ் இலக்கிய உலகில் ஜாம்பவானாக எல்லோராலும் மதிக்கப்படும் சுஜாதா என்கிற எஸ் ரங்கராஜன் மறைந்து இரண்டாண்டுகள் ஆகிவிட்டன. 50 ஆண்டுகளுக்கும் மேல் தமிழ் இலக்கிய உலகை ஆட்சி செய்த மாபெரும் படைப்பாளியாகத் திகழ்ந்தார். தமிழ் சினிமாவில் வசனம் எழுதும் பாங்கை, சத்தமின்றி சுஜாதா பாணிக்கு மாற்றி ரசிகர்களைக் காப்பாற்றிய பெருமை அவரையே சாரும்!

    சுஜாதாவின் இரண்டாம் ஆண்டு நினைவு தினக் கூட்டம் சென்னை நியூ உட்லண்ட்ஸ் ஹோட்டலில் சனிக்கிழமை மாலை நடைபெற்றது. உயிர்மைப் பதிப்பகமும் சுஜாதா அறக்கட்டளையும் இணைந்து இந்த நினைவஞ்சலி கூட்டத்துக்கு ஏற்பாடு செய்திருந்தன.

    இதில் இயக்குநர்கள் ஷங்கர், ராஜீவ்மேனன், பார்த்திபன், வசந்த், சென்னை தொலைக்காட்சி முன்னாள் இயக்குநர் நடராஜன், கவிஞர் மனுஷ்யபுத்திரன், எழுத்தாளர் இந்திரா பார்த்தசாரதி, கார்ட்டூனிஸ்ட் மதன் உள்பட பலர் கலந்து கொண்டு, அமரர் சுஜாதாவை நினைவு கூர்ந்தனர்.

    இந்த நிகழ்ச்சியின் ஆரம்பத்திலேயே வந்துவிட்டார் இயக்குநர் ஷங்கர். வந்திருந்த மற்ற எழுத்தாளர்கள், திரையுலகப் பிரமுகர்கள் தங்கள் பங்குக்கு பேசி முடித்ததும் கிளம்பிப் போக, ஷங்கர் மட்டும் கடைசி வரை நிகழ்ச்சியில் இருந்தார். இத்தனைக்கும் அவர் முதலிலேயே பேசிவிட்டார்.. சுஜாதா மீதான அவரது ஆத்மார்த்தமான அன்பை வெளிப்படுத்துவதாக இருந்தது அது!

    இதுவரை வேறு எந்தக் கூட்டத்திலாவது ஷங்கர் இவ்வளவு நேரம், இத்தனை லயிப்புடன் பேசியிருப்பாரா தெரியவில்லை. மிக எளிமையாக, நேர்மையான பேச்சு அது.

    ஷங்கர் பேசியது:

    நான் கதைகள், புத்தகங்கள் என படிக்க ஆரம்பித்தது சுஜாதாவின் புத்தகங்களிலிருந்துதான். பின்னர் நான் திரைப்படங்களில் பணியாற்றத் துவங்கியபோது, இந்தியன் படத்துக்காக அவரை வசனம் எழுத வைக்க வேண்டும் என்று முடிவு செய்து அவரிடம் போனோம். அப்போது அவர் குமுதம் ஆசிரியராக இருந்தார்.

    பெரிய எழுத்தாளராச்சே என்ற யோசனையுடன் போன எனக்கு அவரது எளிமையும் சுலபமான அணுகுமுறையும் ஆச்சரியம் தந்தது. விஷயத்தைச் சொன்னதும், ‘ஓ பண்ணலாமே… ஒரு நாளைக்கு கதை சொல்லிடுங்க… வேலையை ஆரம்பிச்சிடலாம்’ என்றார். தனக்கு இவ்வளவு சம்பளம் வேண்டும் என்று கூட அவர் என்னிடம் கேட்கவில்லை. அது பற்றி கேட்டபோது, ‘உங்க முந்திய படத்து டயலாக் ரைட்டருக்கு என்ன கொடுத்தீங்களோ, அதையே கொடுங்க போதும்’ என்றார்.

    என் படங்களுக்கு அவர் எழுதிய வசனங்கள் ஒவ்வொன்றும் சிம்பிளாக இருக்கும்… ஆனால் பெரிய பிரமிப்பைத் தரும்.

    இந்தியன் படத்தில் அவரது வசனங்கள் முக்கியமானவை. சொல்லப் போனால் அந்தப் படம் நல்ல முறையில் முடிந்து வெளியானதற்கு சுஜாதா சாரும் ஒரு முக்கிய காரணம். முதல் முறையாக நான் கமல்ஹாஸனுடன் பணியாற்றினேன். அவர்தான் கமலிடம், ‘ஷங்கர்னு ஒரு பையன் நல்ல கதை வச்சிருக்கான். போய் நடிச்சிட்டு வந்தா போதும்’ என்று சொன்னதாக பின்னர் தெரிந்து கொண்டேன்.

    அந்தப் படத்தில் ஒரு காட்சியில்,

    ‘பக்கத்துல இருக்கிற குட்டி குட்டி நாடெல்லாம் எங்கேயோ போயிடுச்சி. ஆனா இந்தியா இன்னும் அப்படியே இருக்கு.. ஏன்? ஏன்னா அங்கெல்லாம் கடமையை மீறுவதற்குதான் லஞ்சம். இங்க மட்டும்தான் கடமையைச் செய்வதற்கே லஞ்சம்…” என்று எழுதியிருப்பார். அது ரொம்பப் பிடிச்சிருந்தது எனக்கு. எத்தனை பெரிய உண்மையை அவர் எத்தனை எளிமையாக சொல்லியிருக்கிறார் பாருங்கள்.

    இதே படத்தில், ‘எல்லாத்துக்கும் குறுக்கு வழியை யோசிச்சு யோசிச்சு இப்போ இந்தியாவில் எல்லா பக்கமும் குறுக்கு வழிகளாயிடுச்சி’ என்று ஒரு காட்சியில் வசனம் வைத்திருப்பார்.

    அந்நியனில் அவர் எழுதிய பல வசனங்கள் மிகச் சிறப்பானவை. ட்ரெயின்ல அம்பி கேரக்டர் பேசுறது, ரெமோ கேரக்டருக்கு ஹீரோயின் கையில முத்தம் கொடுக்கறப்போ ‘என்ன போப்பாண்டவர் மாதிரி தர்றேன்’னு கேட்கிற அந்த நுணுக்கமான நகைச்சுவை… இப்படி சொல்லிக்கிட்டே போகலாம்.

    அவர் எழுதின எல்லா வசனங்களுமே அற்புதமானவை. சிவாஜி படத்துல ரஜினி சார் அமெரிக்காவுல இருந்து வர்ற காட்சியில, சென்னையின் முன்னேற்றத்தைப் பார்த்து வியப்பார். அப்போ, சிக்னல்ல ஒரு பிச்சைக்காரப் பெண் கார் கதைவைத் தட்டும்போது, ‘எல்லாம் வந்துடுச்சி.. ஆனா இது (வறுமை) இன்னும் போகலை’ என்பார்.

    எல்லாத்தையும் இழந்த பிறகு, வக்கீலிடம் ரஜினி சார் பேசும், ‘நான் நடக்கப் பழகிக்கறேன் சார்’ என்ற ஒரு வரி வசனத்தில் எல்லாத்தையும் சொல்லிவிடுவார் சுஜாதா சார். பக்கம் பக்கமா பேச வேண்டிய அவசியமில்லாம, பளிச்சின்னு ரெண்டே வரியில, முடிஞ்சா ரெண்டு வார்த்தையில் சொல்லிடணும் என்பது அவர் கற்றுக் கொடுத்த பாடம்தான்.

    ‘எதையும் என்கிட்ட சொல்லாதே… எழுத்துல கொண்டாந்துடு..’ என்பார். அதேபோல எழுதுறதுல ரொம்ப சிக்கனமா இருக்கச் சொல்வார். பக்கம் பக்கமா எழுதாதே. ஒரு காட்சிக்கான வசனம் ஒரு பக்கத்துக்குள்ளதான் இருக்கணும். முடிஞ்சா அதையும் குறைக்கணும் என்பார். அதுதான் பவர்புல் என்பதைப் புரிந்து கொண்டேன்.

    எந்திரன் வசனங்கள்…

    எந்திரன் படத்தில அவரது வசனங்கள் பல இடங்களில் என்னை வியக்க வைத்தவை. நகைச்சுவையை அவரளவுக்கு வேறு யாராலும் வெளிப்படுத்த முடியாத அளவுக்கு அத்தனை சிறப்பாக இருக்கும். உதாரணத்துக்கு இந்தப் படத்துல ஒரு காட்சி…

    நீண்ட நாள் கழிச்சு ஹீரோ ரஜினி சார், வீடு திரும்புகிறார், தாடி மீசையோட… கதவைத் திறந்ததும், அவரது அம்மா, அவரது நீளமான முடியையும், தாடியையும் பார்த்து பேசும் வசனம் இது.

    ‘என்னப்பா, லீவுல வந்த ரிஷி மாதிரி இருக்க!’.

    எனக்கு இந்த சின்ன வசனமும், அதில் இருக்கிற பிரமாண்டமான நகைச்சுவையும் பிரமிப்பாக இருந்தது. நீங்கள் படம் பார்க்கும்போது இதுபோன்ற நிறைய வசனங்களை உணர முடியும். இப்படி ஒரு படைப்பாளி இல்லையேன்னு வருத்தப்படுவீங்க.

    இதெல்லாத்தையும் தாண்டி, சுஜாதா என்பவர் எனது பெஸ்ட் பிரண்ட் மாதிரி. எனக்கு என்ன பிரச்சினையென்றாலும், எவ்வளவு மன அழுத்தமென்றாலும் முதலில் நான் தொட்ரபு கொண்டு சொல்வது சுஜாதா சார்கிட்டதான். அவர் என் பிரச்சினைகளையெல்லாம் தெளிவா கேட்டுட்டு, சில ஆலோசனைகளை சொல்வார். அடுத்த நாள் நான் தெளிவாகிட்டிருப்பேன்.

    திரைக்கதையில் எத்தனையோ முறை சிக்கல்கள் வந்தபோது நான் சுஜாதா சார்கிட்டதான் அட்வைஸ் கேப்பேன். அவர் உடனே, சில புத்தகங்களைத் தந்து படிச்சுப் பாருப்பா என்பார். எனக்கு அவற்றில் கட்டாயம் விடை கிடைக்கும். புதுசா சில விஷயங்கள் கூட கிடைக்கும். அந்த வகையில் எனக்கு ஒரு புரொபஸர் மாதிரி என்னை கைட் பண்ணியிருக்கார்.

    என்னுடைய முயற்சிகளை, எனக்கே தெரியாம நான் செய்த பல விஷயங்களைச் சொல்லி என்னை அவர் பாராட்டுற விதம், எனக்கே புதிய வேகம் கொடுத்திருக்கு. ‘நீ இந்த விஷயத்தை பிரமாதமா பண்ணியிருக்கே. அது எத்தனை பெரிய விஷயம்னு தெரியாமலே நீ செய்திருக்கேப்பா’ என்பார்.

    எந்த விழா, நிகழ்வுன்னாலும் என் குடும்பத்தில் ஒருவராக சுஜாதா சாரும் இருக்க வேண்டும் என்று விரும்பி அழைப்பேன். எனக்கு ஒருபோதும் மறுப்பு சொன்னதில்லை. என் மீது மிக மிக அன்பு கொண்டவர். வீட்டுக்கு வரும்போதெல்லாம், ‘சினிமாவுக்கே எல்லா நேரத்தையும் செலவிடாதப்பா… குழந்தைகளோட இரு. குடும்பத்துக்காக நேரம் செலவு பண்ணு. அப்புறம் நேரம் இருக்காது’ என்பார் என்னிடமும் என் மனைவியிடமும். ஒரு தந்தையின் ஸ்தானத்திலிருந்து அவர் என்னை வழிநடத்தினார். அவரை நான் ரொம்பவே இழந்துட்டேன்..” என்று தழுதழுப்புடன் முடித்தார்.

    that news sir.

    Hearty congrats on the completion of “Rettai Chuzhi”
    and “Anandhapurathu Veedu” under your S pictures sir,
    and best wishes for their success. :)

    Sir, Endhiran film is going to be one of the best in
    INDIAN cinemas. Am damn sure of it and directors like
    you are those who are moving and will move tamil cinemas
    to a higher peak. In your Endhiran film you might have
    given your best direction as usual. ;)

    Sir do you know..!!!? The Asia’s leading action hero,
    Jackie Chan himself stated this in his Blog addressing
    to Hong Kong directors – ” start working harder than
    ever, because very soon now, Indian cinema will overtake
    us in the eyes of the international audience! ”

    :D Was so happy to see this sir… This will surely come
    true in near future sir. Ungaladhu rasigargalil nanum
    oruvan. Iraivanidam prarthikiren Endhiran-nin maperum

    Then, my request
    1. Being the most expected SCI-FI film in the Tamil Industry, I would like you to release the detailed version of “MAKING OF THE FILM” and “BEHIND THE SCENES.”

    Hello Shankar Sir…
    Enjoying your great days with Rajni Sir once again for the film ‘ENDHIRAN’…

    I have a question for you reg. one talented singer.. Its none other than Shruthi haasan. I wonder why our tamil music directors haven’t gave a chance to her to sing in any of the films recently.. except Varanam aayiram…
    She has sung in Hey ram.. but its long back.. :-(

    It will be surely a great combination if AR RAHMAN & SHRUTHI HAASAN sings together.. She has a unique voice.. which is ofcourse a high quality voice… If both sings together, the way both the voices blending together will be ***scintillating***

    I am thinking whether she already got roped in any of the songs in ENDHIRAN.. It will be great to see Aishwarya Rai in the screen with the voice of Shruthi Haasan…

    Just imagine sir… It will be great.. Like Sayonara & AR Rahman rocked for Adhiradee song in SIVAJI..!!!

    Pls reply me about your opinion on this..!!
    Thanks and Best wishes for your future too..

  204. stephen says:

    Hello Shankar sir,

    How do you do………

    Hello Sir, extremely happy to see your blog, I have been following all films of yourz right from Gentleman till Sivaji and i have liked them all, But felt Indian and Boys were the best beacuse of their superb screenplay and terrific Music. What are your Plans after Endhiran Sir? Would you be willing to explore other Genre of films or would you continue Making Larger than life hero centric films. I remember in of your interviews you had said that you first film was an out and out love story but no producer was willing to take it.So i am egaerly expecting to see different Genre of films from you Sir like Boys as i feel you would do justice to all kinds of flims.

    Your Vivid Fan

    Hi, Mr.Director, I am a fan of Maniratnam, A R Rahman and Shankar.I think in my point of view your best experiment so far is Kadhalan.I still like the movie and never get bored, also i liked the movie Boys.I liked the boys title design which is fresh and very young.I am a graphic designer with some good hands on Photoshop and Illustrator.I like to work more on the entertainment industry even if its a graphic job.I would be very happy to work with you.It would be a great oppurtunity to learn lot of things from you.I don’t expect anything other than that i could learn from you.

    Hope i could get noticed by some one from the Cine industry

    Thanks & Regards,
    Antony Ravinson.

    Hello Mr.Shankar,
    Im from Srilanka and im sure most Srilankan tamils will watch this movie here. But, there are many Srilankans (who speak a language other than tamil) who wanna watch tamil movies in theatres, but they never do coz dey dont understand the language. They have to wait until the DVD with english subtitles release to watch the movies. Is it possible in any way to release Endhiran with english subtitles in Srilanka, or throughout the world? U could consider dubbing the movie in sinhalese also, rhich i dont think it would be as expensive as dubbing the movie in another language. Also there are many Srilankans who watch hindi movies, coz they have a strange affinity towards non-tamil movies, and also coz there is a large community of hindi speaking community here. A hindi version of the movie could be released in Srilanka as well.
    I hope u get the time to read this. I believe the success of the movie can be increased much more if language wasnt a barrier.
    Good luck

    Hello Sir,

    Have you heard of Binaural technologies… Its 3D sound that makes you feel the distance… Can movies be made with such technologies with every person given a headphone in theater… Are there any movies made with such technologies..

    Thanks and Regards

  209. bharath kumar says:

    Respected sir,

    I have one question to you.why cant the CG be upto the mark in kollywood, inspite of unquiestionable IT knowledge that we possess. hope ENDHIRAN gives answer to those.


  210. Ravi Shankar says:

    Hello Sir,
    I recentlyheard that Rajini sir has told that the Film would release in JULY\AUG. My humble request to you is please dont release it during aug as itis not lucky for thalaivar(remeber the fate of baba and kuselan). So try to release it for diwali or much earlier April 14th.

  211. Siddharth Ravikumar says:

    Hello Sir,
    I really appreciate your attempt to blog about the stuff you do and keep in touch with your fans directly. This demystifies the film maker’s life and work to an extent. I’m glad to follow your blog and get updates from the horse’s mouth rather than from the tabloids. All the best, I’m sure you have a treat in store for us.

    I have one request. It would be awesome to have RSS feeds for this blog so that I can follow your blog articles regularly as and when you publish them, instead of having to visit the blog randomly to check for updates.

    Hello Sir,
    You are one director we look upto for taking Tamil films to the next level (technical brilliance)… and first of all thanks for amazing us with your down to earth beautiful BLOG…

    I grew up reading Comic books like many kids… Maybe thats why I love ur “One Man Army” movies so much… Now Sir, Have you ever thought of creating a Super-Hero (not just a larger than life hero) and make a series of movies…?? Like Ironman, Spiderman (and the list goes endless)

    If we as fans can dream about Indian part-II, YOU, the creator, would definitely have… would love to hear from you Sir…!!

  214. Sai Praneeth says:

    I am badly awaiting for the release of your movie ‘Robot’. I am eager to listen to his music as it would be his first sci-fi movie. In fact, after knowing that you Rahman sir is composing music for this I have also tried to imagine what could the music be like and come up with a few sci-fi tunes few years back.
    Anyways, could you tell me whether your next 2 tamils films (esp. the one with many kids) will be dubbed in telugu or not.

    I wish all the very best for ‘Robot’.

    hello sir.
    before i ask my question first i’d like to give you my hearty wishes sir. for giving us different stories. there had been rumors that a few of your scenes were used in the hindi film love sory 2050. is it true sir??
    and one more question.
    in what time period is the story based on. is it based on the distant future with flying cars, teleporting and stuff or is it in the near future where an intelligent machine misinterprets the humans and starts attacking them. waiting for your reply sir.
    you are always busy yet you find time to reply to our questions and comments. its an honor to live in the same city with you sir..

  217. Arunkumar says:


    Best wishes for ur production ventures. Its good to see that your movies are different and are not the same story line. I would like to know how you choose, selected kind of stores for ur production house.

    Hi to Endhiran group and special and big hi to our such a prestigious director shankar,

    (Please free ur time for 2 mins and go through the below mail)

    Good day to you!!!!

    I read some of mails sent to you. in that one mail, one of the fellow mail is mentioned that do film in your style.
    What he told is absolutely rite because while watching shivaji movie i am reliazed that this is not shankar direction movie some new director had directed the movie in that shankar has gave some inputs to new director. sorry to tell you but this is the fact.
    I hope endhiran is live up our expectation!!!!
    Please don’t hire HEROINE’S outside our tamil film industry,if u r doing tamil films. why means because it looking like,in our tamil industry no one having talent to that role may be true but u have talent to extract talent.thats why i am telling to u.for me how it looking means, in our region only so many talents are there but also some companys hiring abroad people’s.
    if anything written wrongly please forgive me.

    if possible please reply to this mail in ur busy schedule.
    Awaiting your news.

    Thanks & Regards

  219. Balaji says:

    Hello sir,
    It’s nice to see you produce some good movies. Pulikesi and eeram are your best production works till date. I would like to see an excellent comedy movie with a good script and loads of humour. It has been a long time since such a movie hit the screens. Please try to produce such a comedy entertainer which has a good story. I am sure it will be a huge profit making movie for you. Just give a try sir:) Surely, we will be there to support you.But it must not be like Goa or Tamizh padam which do not have good scripts. Both are average movies. Audience is very intelligent these days. So, please give a comedy movie which has a good story and rip roaring comedy. All the best sir:)

  220. Subramanian says:

    Ubhayakushalobhari Shankar!

    You are one of the very very few visionary film makers in India who make movie viewing a totally different and amazing experience. Visually scintillating to say the least! Hats off!!
    I was totally thrilled when I read about your plans to convert Endhiran to 3D. But now I hear news that you have called it off since it is not quite possible to convert a 2D movie to 3D perfectly. Is it true? I hope not.
    Please please push for it Shankar…Somehow get the movie in 3D…doesn’t matter if it is not as good as a real 3D film but please try to do it…I believe this could be Superstar’s last movie as a hero. We want to worship our Idol in 3D at least once! :D

    Hoping to see our Superstar as an Andro-Humanoid in 3D,

  251. Mahesh... says:


    1. Sir , How did you convince your parents before entering the media field .

    2. Did you ever think some of The surprise Packages That You had in Endhiran , have been revealed in Avatar (i.e Technologies , Your new concepts , Advanced visual effects etc).

    3. Which is Your next holiday destination After Giving Us The Endhiran Treat .

  252. K.G.Vishnu Prasad says:

    Hello sir,
    I am big fan of your movies. I have always admired your direction. I am a resident of bangalore, have been living here for the last 10 years.
    The city has never seen a bigger movie launch than that of Sivaji. People over here wer jus shocked to see the response the film got. The multiplexes were crowded, and their OWNERS were dumbstruck, since they had not seen such a crowd for any other movie till then.( Not even hindi movies).
    Sir i always feel very disturbed by the fact that tamil movies dont get the recognition they deserve. I was extremely happy about the way sivaji was publicized throughout the country. People in north india took notice of our film and also it was a hit there. But again things have changed now. Very few tamil movies cross the southern region, and the publicity campaigns are limited to Tamil Nadu alone. There is a huge population out in banaglore and karnataka who watch tamil movies, but not many people know that very good movies like Eeram also Exist!!. Every time i see a hindi movie trailer in NDTV or CNN-IBN, i use to think y cant there be tamil movie trailers also shown on their channel? We are in no way inferior to any other industry in the country. Infact we have the best talents in the country, but why do we still struggle to get recognized? Every now and then we see a lot bollywood actors interviews in these so called National Channels, who are actually biased to a certain movie industry. But how many south indian actors interviews do these channels show? When are these things going to change? We tamilians are in no way inferior to anyone. Dont mistake me, I dont want to start a divide between industries, but as a tamil movie lover, i am deeply hurt. Not only tamil movies, but the other south indian languages also should get what they deserve. I am not saying that people in North india are bad, they are good people but I believe that we are all INDIANS, and ther shouldn be any divide amongnst us. Also sir i hope you and sun pictures will tie up with FOX studios for promoting Endhiran(Worldwide), and have a premiere of ENDHIRAN AT some international festival. Coz this time We have to prove to the world that We indians,specifically tamilians are among the best in MAKING films, and i think you are the only person who is capable of such a thing. Wishin u all success for endhiran,One final question is endhiran also being released in Hollywood?

  253. Ramesh ELango says:

    Shankar sir …

    Do u hav any plan to work with Isainyani Ilayaraja sir.. in future..

  254. Nandakumar says:

    The opening scene in SHIVAJI would’ve been more amazing if the Rajni who came out of the police vehicle with his face covered were the MOTTA BOSS.. tat’s wat i thought when i saw the movie for the first time. you might not ‘ve shown the face of Rajni in the first scene.. and could’ve revealed it latter during the course of the film (thought the script would’ve been totally different if that was the case). Just sharing my view sir… i liked the movie more when i watched it for second time..

    also i ‘ve one question to you sir:
    why did you change the rajni’s introduction (the name sequence)… all the movies post annamalai had the same sequence and it was kind of like James Bond coming through O in all bond movies.. now rajni’s name seems to be just like other mass heroes introduction..(it was different again in the next film) but rajni sir is the SUPERSTAR.. he needs to be distinct.. pls do something with the name sequence(i’d like to see the old one)

  255. Sabarinath says:

    sir do u think that you have got a best producer for ur film endiran…because SUN network is ready do spend anything for ur creativity that to get the best…and this is going to be the highest budget film i think in indian film industry…

  256. laxmikanth says:

    …………………..‘Endhiran’ in 3D………………………
    HI SIR,

    Thank you For giving us a blog like this.

    My wish has come true that Endhiran in 3D., God it will be massive.

    I was thinking why don’t we go beyond AVATAR. Like Avatar was a visual treat
    But Why Cant we do some thing like A COMPLETE 3D-4D AUDIO EFFECTS SIMULATION. By wearing a special earphone (Optional).

    In simple terms- 3D audio and 3D visual will be mind bogging. By giving a realistic experiences.

    This is also one of the way Zeroing of piracy.

    Great Going Sir All The Best

  260. G.Vasudevan says:

    Hi Shankar Sir. I am a 3D Animation Artist. I want you to direct a 3D Animation Movie in tamil as Dr.MGR as a Hero. Shall you do it?????????????? (Anda Padam Vivasayathai pattriyadaga irundal nandraga Irukkum).

  261. Arun says:

    Hello Sir,
    what about valli sir..
    No songs from his pen eh??

  262. Suresh Ram says:

    Hi Shankar,

    Do you have plans to include remix or original version of ‘Superstar Yaarunu kaetta’ song in Endhiran ?

    It will be really cool if you have a scene where the Robo Rajini shakes his legs for this songs. Definitely all super star fans will love this. Its humble request , please consider.

    Keep us posted with developments in Endhiran. Endhiran – 3D seems to be pretty good idea. All the very best.

  263. Guru says:

    Shankar Sir,

    All of your movies have excellent BGMS. Please include atleast couple of small BGMS in ENDHIRAN’s audio CD ……….

    you are one among the greatest directors in India.I wish you to do one more film with kamalhaasan or with oor thala(AJITH) with new script…Im expecting for your reply sir..Pls

  265. Himalay Reddy says:

    Hello sir! It’s an honour to be writing to you on your own blog!

    I love your films! They are out of the world and very very innovative! Only you can weave magic like the way you do!

    But I have a few complaints, or more importantly, just one complaint. I think you are prejudiced against your heroines. Take any of your films for example (except the mega-blockbuster Geans, where the heroine, Aishwarya madam, was the real hero of the film!) I know I might be wrong, but it’s just my opinion of what I have noticed in your blockbusters. It’s a humble request from my side to also give your heroines a chance to perform neck-to-neck with your heroes. I’m hoping that my dream will come out to be true in Endhiran and Aishwarya madam will compete with Rajni sir in the acting department.

    BTW, We would prefer to watch Ash madam in her own voice. Please try to avoid dubbing, sir! We love her voice, so please retain it(Now that she has learnt Tamil very well with Mani sir’s “Raavan”) :)

    And one question, sir. Will this be your last film with Ash madam and Rajni sir?? Will you never work with them again?? Hoping that you do!

    Finally, I would want to know the title in Telugu and Hindi as well. Will it be Robot or any other title? If yes, please specify what the title is, sir(that’s because it has been reported that the title in Telugu is “Yanthram”)

    Please confirm, sir! Would be waiting for your reply!! Please do reply sir! Thank you so much. Wish you lots and lots and lots of happiness in your personal life and huge success in your professional life! :)

    Himalay Reddy.

  271. Karthik says:

    Dear Sir

    Many thanks from the bottom of my heart for entertaining us so well all these years.

    I have watched all your movies till date right from Gentleman. We are amazed at the grandeur and scale each of your movies are emerging.

    Very happy to know that Endhiran is also being considered for 3D. Our wish and support in this and having recently watched Avatar 3D we are sure it would be a visual treat if Endhiran would also be on 3D (Only you can do it in Tamil).

    Apart from production it would also be very good if you can start a professional film academy which can bring out great directors in future (since all cannot get an opportunity to work with you).

    Once again let the blessings of the almighty be with you always for the efforts and hard work.


  272. Austin says:

    hi shankar anna.. all the best for ur endhiran movie.. everyone knows it will have lot of suprises.. anna its just a request from ur fan.. pls do a film with thala ajith.. he wil suit any character or any role with hard work.. thank u anna.. take care..waiting for endhiran!!… plz reply

  273. Nirmal Kumar says:

    Hello Shankar Sir…
    Enjoying your great days with Rajni Sir once again for the film ‘ENDHIRAN’…

    I have a question for you reg. one talented singer.. Its none other than Shruthi haasan. I wonder why our tamil music directors haven’t gave a chance to her to sing in any of the films recently.. except Varanam aayiram…
    She has sung in Hey ram.. but its long back.. :-(

    It will be surely a great combination if AR RAHMAN & SHRUTHI HAASAN sings together.. She has a unique voice.. which is ofcourse a high quality voice… If both sings together, the way both the voices blending together will be ***scintillating***

    I am thinking whether she already got roped in any of the songs in ENDHIRAN.. It will be great to see Aishwarya Rai in the screen with the voice of Shruthi Haasan…

    Just imagine sir… It will be great.. Like Sayonara & AR Rahman rocked for Adhiradee song in SIVAJI..!!!

    Pls reply me about your opinion on this..!!
    Thanks and Best wishes for your future too..

  274. Narayan says:

    Dear Shankar Sir

    We have seen diff stories(films)from ur side.
    In near future , can we expect a full length comedy film form ur side. It is not production but direction from u.
    Oru 3 mani neram vayeru kulunga sirikanam sir.avalavuthan.
    Hilarious in all depts of the film.

  275. Shiva says:

    Hope “Rettaisuzhi” is not based on “GRUMPY OLD MEN”. I like that movie, but I would always love to see something original from Tamil directors.

    Here is the info about the movie I am talking about


  276. Vimal R says:


    This is vimal, i want the “Enthiran” movie in 3-D only to beat the avatar movie.. This is the time to prove our Strength of tamil industry. You only having the power to handle and achive all impossible into possible. And we need one Oscar from you. pls pls release movie as soon as possible.

    And finally one request please don’t allow the pirated CD/DVD for our Enthiran Movie. We know you take some action to stop pirated CD, but this is our kind request to block CD’s in all places.


  277. Ravindhararajan says:

    hello sir,
    i am huge fan of your movies and lover of good Tamil cinemas

    i just read while surfing that bollywood movie KITES(starring Hrithik Roshan) going for an international editing (editing done by an hollywood director) and releasing worldwide …the same movie in India it is edited by an Indian editor for Indian audience ..So that movie earns international audience as well as the INDIAN audience also….

    Will this technique happen with your projects…..waiting for your reply sir

  278. Soma says:

  282. Arulselvan says:


    I had seen that your favourite movie is “Geans” in your direction..Mee too.

    Definitely Geans is a remarkable movie in the Indian history and we can challenge that no where in this world they taken the story resemblence of the movie.Unimaginable thinking Sir.Hats off to you.

    Definitely your brain is a hard disk. we are waiting for movies like Geans from you. Dont make any films in any other language sir.Make only in Tamil language. Thats my kind request.

  283. rukmani says:

    nice to see your reply then and there amongst your busy schedule

  284. dani says:

    Hello sir,
    I like to ask something

    $$$$) Are all songs in enthiran imaginary duets. In Sivaji,
    all the songs were imaginary duets including the
    introduction song…..so what about enthiran…OR can
    we expect a real song like ‘kaadal yaanai’ in anniyan.

    “WISHES to the ENTHIRAN team”

  285. Prashanth A says:

    Good Morning / Afternoon / Evening

    Just an enquiry, why dont any movie has not started in the time of evening? and it doesnt mean that you have to show only sun set, there are many other things that happen in evening like birds returning to their home, children leaving the school etc. why has this not been tried so far?

    Can we see a movie made out of a story from MALGUDI DAYS from you(Directed by you)? and when can we see a full length comedy movie like Thillu-Mullu or Mazhalai Pattalam or Pammal K Sammandam or the recent Tamizh Padam from you? coz as of now what we have from you is either a movie on love or a something on socio-economic problem(excluding ROBOT…sorry ENDHIRAN). After Thirumalai-Thenkumari and Madras to Pondicherry there hasnt been any movie made on the Journey trip. Can we expect something atleast one from the above mentioned list from you in the near future?

    Prashanth A

    Hi Shankar Sir,

    i am an Indian fan(out of all movies u directed i love watching INDIAN)

    recently i read in news that you shooted a song in peru/hawaii(nt sure) for a whooping 30 crores(just a song)…

    compared to this u r production banner S Pictures produces the films less than the amount you used for that song..

    the question is what makes that song so special ..??

    hope you will reply for this question …

    have a good time with endhiran crew and cast ..

    Hi Shankar Sir,
    I am your great fan and i watched all of your movies on the first day. Of all, i liked Mudhalvan a lot. Still its my favourite movie. Also i am an Ajith Fan. Is it true that you initially discussed Endhiran film to be made with Ajith? Ajith once had told this in an interview i believe. Then what happened? Expecting a Shankar-Thala Combo. Hope Ajith will be suiting for any of your scripts. Please reveal the secret about this matter.. Please..

  299. Gowreswaran says:

  301. PRASANNA says:

    Hello Shankar Sir,
    I love all ur movies and get excited each time I get some news or the other about ur upcoming movies.Best Wishes and all the best to U!!!
    I have always felt “Mudhalvan” is ur best so far, for its bold theme, roller coaster like screenplay and a rivetting climax.

    As a FAN I hope you do movies which r on par with or greater than ‘LORD OF THE RINGS’ type and am sure you can deal them with panache!!!

    How about a part of Ramayan/Mahabharat for a START! :)

    Cheers!!! Expecting Endhiran SOON!!! and our own ‘LORD OF THE RINGS’

  302. Saktheeswaran says:

    “தண்ட்டர் Director ஷங்கர்”
    Its our fanbase name hereafter… i guess u are spinning hot lava in our flowing blood by replying to blogs whenever u find time…
    oru world famous director having time to interact with fans… i take a bow to u!!

    how on earth u got contacts wid michael westmore(indian) or other world famous technicians and animatrix company…
    another bow for such an effort…

    being kamal as 1st preference in this project i expected Mr.kamal hassan to do a small 10 sec guest appearence at end.. avar thillu mullu mari chumma vandha semaya irukum and ll demonstrate their frdship and trademark punch in Tamil Cinema and a pinaccle for u as a director..u are the key maker yet again so u know what is best

    one another request..
    pls dont release trailer or photos after CG has been done…
    let it be damn surprise like “Oru kodai” from sivaji in which no one could have imagined White Super Star…
    let it be visual treat for us DIRECTLY On BIG SCREENS…

    Aprom as sun pics undertaking Magnum opus…
    pls request them not to show screens and songs very frequently like done for Ninaithale inikum and Vettaikaran…atleast 2 or 3 months after endhiran release let the songs be broadcasted and scenes be shown…

    i want to experience the feel of ENDHIRAN and BEAT OF ENDHIRAN all over India!!!!!

    many of our orkut shankar fans club has posted a small request to see u in screen for 5 secs atleast.. u have to hear our request sir… atleast credits pothu vanga … we want u r image after seeing u r sweat and hardwork on screen…

I love the Adisayam song in jeans,it was so melodies which drive my life away from this world. I wish that you could select such tunes for your future project. How did you select the tune? Reply sir…

  335. Narayan says:

    Dear Sir
    A kind requet to the team to allow this mess to be posted here.Today Anniyan was shown in Surya channel. I have just one query to ask Shankar sir. This I have already asked but deleted from the previous post. Police will say that all the 3 IP address will be same(after verification).Only first two cases will be in his house.The third case will be on the way to Thiruvaiyaru. I think here it is technically incorrect. Why such undefying logic has been kept , that too in a Shankar film.
    Shankar sir film will have good mess as well as strong script for the society.

    Sir please reply for this post and correct me if I am wrong.

  342. Mani.S says:

    Hello sir,

    I have some requests. May be already u might be having all these ideas.

    1. Recently Rahman’s VTV audio launch was in London. Director Gautham mentioned that he wanted to show the world that Rahman belongs to us, so he wanted the audio launch to be in London. I expect the same for Robo too, in a more grand scale. It is one of the ways for marketing too and will bring the movie to notice to many more people.

    2.It will be good if the trailer of the movie will be shown in Hindi and English Channels, at least in some of the Indian channels

    3. Pamplets with all the highlights of the movie can be distributed, especially to college students bcz college people dont mind to watch any language if it is a good movie

    Many north people think that south movies are low budget movies and with no talent. I wont blame them too bcz they never watch south movies, so they are not aware of it. Even Mani Ratnam had said once that Bollywood people think that there are no talents in south. So some strategies can be made which will make many north people to watch Robo. Movie should be released in such a grand scale that no other movie should be able to beat it in future. I want you to create lot and lot of expectations for Robo in north too sir, that is my main request.

  343. k . vidyadhar says:

    sir it is good to hear that u even take art films bt why cant we see u directing a film sir i have a movie thought which is rare can i share with u i frm ap hyderabad

  344. narayanan says:

    Dear shankarji,

    please i like to remind about the disadvantages of diwali time.

    diwali means raining in tamil nadu.winter..
    films releasing in diwali will always witness poor audience in all cinema halls in tamil nadu and also have poor box office collections.
    This i am observing as a cinema fan for the past 20years.

    so,please avoid to release our superstar film in diwali.

    you can prefer june or july for endhiran release.

    so,kindly consider my suggestion.

    thank you sir

    Absolutely wonderful to see the coming together of two icons, KB sir and Bharathi Raja in one movie. The idea behind this itself is brilliant and I am sure the movie will be so too.

    I live in Hong Kong, are you releasing Endhiran here and when? There are so many tamilians here lie me who are dying to watch it. If not I will surely feel like a big time loser!..Pls do reply.


  359. moulali says:

    when is endhiran going to release? atleast about audio release of endhiran?

  360. kppradeep says:

    hi Shankarji,
    I had raised my concerns about rogue sites which indulge in copy right violation and cause misery to many hard working people like Thalaivar and your team. have you made pukka arrangements that such a thing does not happen to Endhiran. Just say a yes and you need not give the details as it might work against you.
    So far only 56 comments;common guys bombard Shankar with your comments. he will not post till the comments exceed 200 at least
    All the best

  372. santhosh says:

    Hi Shankar,

    Since tamil cinema is in bad shape and most directors are taking movies based on heroism. The screenplay of many movies are incomplete and fails to impress the viewers. So as a trendsetter i would like you to direct films with good message like 3 idiots and a fantasy movie like avatar as a next film.

  373. mani says:

    hi sir!

    is it true that Stunt director Yuen Woo Ping is working in enthiran? how have the stunts come out? when will enthran hit the sreens, probable month atleast?

  374. Sriram.S says:

    Hello sir,

    This is sriram from chennai. This is my second post in your blog. I am your great fan. Expecting a lot from Endhiran sir.

    What about Karunas and santhanam’s role in Endhiran? I read in books tat “Robo” Rajini itself share a major portion in comedy, so what can we expect from santhanam and karunas?? And is there any surprise elements in endhiran? Like any guest Appearance?;-)

    Also i would like to know your all time favorite movies? In tamil and also in other languages.?

    Waiting for your reply….

    Hi sir,

    Have you seen the japanese movie “Departures” (Oscar Winner). I was choked. try it once if you have not seen it. Definitely worth watching. As a director you are strucked in commercial terms. But as a producer you can try such kind of movies. We expect such kind of movies from S Pictures.

  383. ANUSHKA says:

    hay sir, plz make a non action movie like JEANS.

  397. CyernautV says:

    Dear Shankar,

    I am one among the million’s of your fan. I am from Kerala
    Glad to Meet you through the blog. Hope you are having nice time shooting for “Robo” . Always my fav film is your “Gentleman”. The main characters in the film which
    expressed the plight of a particular community is still relevent in these days. They are denied of getting into professional seats because of the so called “community” background eventhough they are meritorious. I think no other directors in Tamil film industry have dared to take a film of this subject matter.

    Sir, regarding the technology and innovation used in the film, i guess surely the Hindi film industry will feel Jealous…!

  398. Vazeer Abu Bilal Kuwait says:

    Dear Shankar, Please declare the release date of Enthiran. No more waiting please…….

  403. Arun says:

    Hello Mr. Shankar,

    We expect a top-class Shankar-cum-Thalaivar movie ! !

    You have got superstar and Ash in your crew but still why do u need songs and group dances for a movie that deals with Robot. Sorry for assuming about the dances and songs.( JUst figured from the gallery pics).

    Unga baashai la solnumnaa, ” Pump set vilambrathuku ethuku sir Rambaa ?”

    Please give us a genre-oriented movie like Unnaipol oruvan, Eeram where u use songs and music just for the flow of the movie.

    You have treated us well with your song making styles, your grand sets, etc. It is OK for other Shankar movies but this is about a Robot I guess.. and I dont understand the need for duet songs and mass dances apart from the needs from your producers and distributors ! ! !

    I just felt it and thought of sharing it with you ! !

    Waiting for Enthiran ! ! !

  404. Raghav says:


    May be you are not clear about the next script and the hero to direct. But I would request you not to have a second thought on which language. Ungal sevai TAMIL cinema vukku thevai.,

  405. Soma says:

    Dear Shankar,

    All the best for the all new Projects. We are eager to hear songs of Endiran, when do you planed to release.

    After the take over of Endiran to SunPicture from Ayngaran, i have seen the progress and updates about the movie coming very quickly. Are you getting any pressure from production house or else are they giving full freedom do work.

  406. Shanmuga says:

    Hello sir,
    nice to see your post about your S picture upcoming movies.. It good know that about your productions too.

    All your existing movie under your productions are so good. I so existed your “Eram”. Its fantastic movie.. thanks you very much sir.
    We are expecting your other movies from your productions.

    Between thankyou very much for the “Shivaji” movie to display the superstar with different look. i was amazed when i saw the movie in the first day with rajini’s fans. i really proved to be one of the fan of him.

    I hope you again show him with the new look in the coming “Enthiran” too..

    Once again thanks for all the effort to the cine industry and also cool work for this blog to give the opportunity to talk/share our thoughts to you.!
    Thanks to “shankar sir” Team!

  416. Sai says:

    What is GEANS?


    or is it an alternative for Genes? or are you trying to indicate something else, sir? hope you reply to this one at least.

  417. pradeep says:

    HOW do you do SIR,
    I have one small question for you about enthiran.

    ))))Have Prabu Deva and Lawrence choreographed for any song and who are the other choreographers involved.

    ))))Are there any other lyricist other than Vairamuthu and his son involved………Waiting for you reply

    Wishes to the Enthiran team

  418. kiran says:

    hello sir,

    i had asked you whether u ve got any script for kamal haasan sir…..(coz INDIAN is ur best movie till date…)but u didnt reply 4 it. Pls do reply sir

    • I wrote a script for kamal sir after indian.. that script also demanded heavy makeup.. kamal sir felt dat after indian n avvai shanmughi he should do a film without any special make up, then only it will look different.
      U know onething kiran, for that script only i initially titled ‘anniyan’, later i used it for ambi’s story bcoz it suited well.
      I still have dat script fresh even today.. very interesting one n completely different from my other themes.. i may even do dat as my next film.. with whom i dont know.. anything i’ll decide after enthiran only.

  419. Selvaraju says:

    Hi Sir,

    Looks like you r interested in horror movies (Earem, Ananthapuram veedu), please keep up that interest. Earem really rocked. When I saw the movie, I felt the dampness throughout the movie (technical crew rocked). I know it is all because of you who is ready to produce different concepts. Producer shankar rocks. Expecting Ananthapuram veedu. Miratuma ?

  420. Arun sambasivam says:

    Dear Shankar Sir

    Hope ENDHIRAN shooting is going fine.

    Two days before i have read one article titled “Beat piracy by 3D Movies”.In which they mentioned that,If polarized light is used For making 3D Movie then there is no chance of watching that 3D movie on ANY LCD or CRT screen.

    Sir,why dont you try 3D movies.so that everyone wants to see the movie in big screen to experience the view&effect(Eg:AVATAR).

    Cost is the major factor so as of now you are the only director who can give movie with message and effects(Out of your 9 movies 5 movies got national award for special effects).

    • Discussions r going on to convert a portion of endhiran movie to 3d. Today technology s grown up n such a way u can convert any 2d movie to 3d. Lot of leading vfx houses all over d world r successful in that conversion. Recently i’ve seen a demo 3d version of john travolta movie ‘Grease’.
      Today morning we had seen a test of endhiran 3d done by our own Indian artist srinivasan who had won d national award for 3d technology,it was very exciting!
      Final decision will be taken after few analysis.

  421. Selva says:

    Dear Shankar,

    All the best for the movie Rettai Suzhi to be successful. Waiting to see that in theatrees..

    Is the media news about you doing a romance flick with Siddharth after Endhiran true?



  422. mani says:

    and one more question ? has SUJATHA sir s death affected enthiran? i read ur condolence letter in which u `ve meant that this film would be really good if he was there

    • Though sujatha sir’s death didn’t affect endhiran , but if he was here, it wd’ve been a great support n very helpful for me.. i miss him always..
      Madhan karky (son of) vairamuthu is a professor in anna university helping in technical informations n dialogues now.He had written a song also in endhiran.

  423. Sai Srinivasan says:

    Rettachuzhi images are fantastic… have a great and happy trip to mumbai
    I saw a message rumour in behindwoods.com that rettachuzhi is going for a name change as imayamum sigaramum…
    … this itself is awesum title… but u are the key maker…

    Again my humble request… DONT LEAVE US (TAMIL FANS) and go to hindi or hollywood industries… we know u are the hottest director on this planet.. Pls dont disappoint us !!!

    one question sir… U have reached a pinnacle in movie industry… took movies wid rajini and kamal sir…
    u dont have anything more to give in ur next film…
    coz u usually give better than before :)
    anyways…looking forward to multistarrer concepts in future
    vijay vikram or some etc…atleast in u r S pictures…
    all the best for Anandhapurathil vedu and Rettachuzhi
    pls keep prints safe… i cant bare if someone tricks S Pictures…pls do take extra care in ROBO audio !!!

    we as u r fans will condemn PIRACY at all cost…
    we are there for u sir… ALL the Best…

  426. subin r says:


    Good that you have started your blog/personal site. Thanks for doing that and interacting with your fans.

    I was about to ask you whether ‘Cochin Haneefa’ sir is part of ‘Endhiran’.
    But yesterday I was shocked to see the newspaper that he has passed away.

    He is great actor and you have given him very good roles in Mudhalvan, Anniyan and Sivaji.
    And those were made really memorable by that great actor. Especially the comedy in Sivaji is ultimate.
    We will be missing him very badly :-(

    All the best for Endhiran and future projects!!!


    • Even i was shocked.. it was a big loss for me n d whole south indian film industry..
      My deep condolences to cochin hanifa’s family.
      His comedy scene n endhiran with rajini sir s going to rock n memorable one.

  427. Sathishkumar says:

    please reply for this post. I have to show to my friends and archive it for lifetime.

    Hi Shankar,
    I am a an ardent fan of Rajni sir, recently I witness a part of enthiran shooting while you were in pune. After this stint I went back home and played your movie Sivaji’s DVD. Till then I just wanted to see it but was not that keen. But from that day (december 2009) I have played that movie several times… I am located in Pune for the past 20 years hence dont get much oportunities to be with south Indian cinemas… I appreciate myself that I bought a dozen of Tamil DVD movies on my visit to Nagapatinam and to my native mothers Nagarcoil…. Sivaji is a great movies.. I salute you for making such a wonderful movie.

    I hope you read my post..

    Best Wishes
    simon Netto
