    helo sir,, i am die hard fan of ur direction…… i am very much happy to hear u r doing 3 idiots with ilayathalapathy vijay.. we r very eagerly waiting for this project.. but the news was came to know that surya wil act instead of vijay, just we cant dijest it as fan of ilayathapathy…. we want movie with combination u & vijay .. we request u to release the same movie in telugu with vijay itself .. then only the talent of our thalapathy will come to know the telugu people also….they wil surely coincide with this idea because u know the taste of fan in individual……….

    Only u can do it.

    Unbelievable sequence of scenes n awesome direction and unexpected climax.

    Complete movie is awesome and last 45 min was tremendous….

    Thanks a lot to u…

    Endhiran….Only shankar can direct a movie like this, only kalanidhi maran can produce it n only our thalaivar one n only superstar can be the hero….

  28. Saravanan Kunjithapatham says:

    Dear Mr. Shankar,
    I’ve been watching all of your moives, only in theatres. ‘Gentleman’ was my all-time-favorite-one, (not only from your creations) until I’ve watched ‘Shivaji’ in one of the U.S. theatre..that too, I’ve got the experience that I was watching Super Star Rajini’s moive in one of our theatre in India :=) meaning, I had to watch it for a second time, to enjoy the dialogues later, as such a crowded Rajini fans didn’t stop whistling till end! ;=)

    Any way, we are all eagerly awaiting for “Endhiran” at this time..

    Please continue to do the Wonderful Job, and when you take a break in between your productions, please do take a real, relaxed, and restful break… We (Movie Industry) need a Healthy Shankar as there is a long way ahead
    Best Wisehs from

  31. SasikumarS says:

    Hi sir,

    I am very big Fan of u. I like ur movies very much. I expecting full length comedy movie from u sir…

  32. vasu says:

    Hello sir,
    i am a vey big fan of u. i am very eager to watch endiran. But i want to share one thing with you. I stay in mumbai and it is seen that south movies are released here with dubbing in hindi. but advertisement and promotion part of the movie is not taken seriously because of which we fail to register in the public mind. A movie like robot should be promoted equally in mumbai just like endiran is done in tamil nadu. For example, frequently playing the songs in fm., frequent promos and trailers in tv channels, ROBOT manuques in the theatre and last but not the least, the most importantly full page ads in main english, marathi and hindi news papers. Since on august 27 AVATAR is rereleasing, after 30th august , these things should be started. Also very importantly a talk show should be arranged in famous tv channel, in which the making of this movie and amount of effort u people have taken should be shared with the people, and this show should be telecasted in prime time and day. Why i am saying all these things because people here in north india never took south movies so seriously and they should understand and know that we make movies which are thousand times better than what bollywood makes. I hope atleast u will think about my points .
    Thank you

  33. ragu says:

    Why are you like this sir??! After seeing your movies and your perfection in movies! My sleep was disturbed! I am also want to do my job in 100 percent perfection. So my sleep hours reduced!

  61. Prashanth A says:

    Good morning / evening

    Dont know what happenned to my previous 2 posts…m not able to see it over here. anyways….. i just have few queries…

    when can we see you direct a movie from Novels or stories like Malgudi Days?
    why does all our movies start either in morning or night? why has no movie kept the time of sunset as its opening backdrop?
    Can we expect a full length comedy movie like Thillu Mullu, Pammal K Sammantham or Mazhalai Pattalam from you(under your direction)?
    How would it be if we cast few of our carnatic musicians and playback singers or orchestra group and make a thriller movie involving only the musicians? Would you be able to conceptualize a script for that and direct it too?

  62. Kubendran says:

    U diappointed me so much..!Since u have taken shooting in our office(KRISP IT Park(Kaavian Systems)) on 12.02.2010 Friday,But not with our Legend.We are all expected so much to see our thalaiver.But our bad luck its not happened.

    Anyway we r so glad that our office is a part of Enthiran.

    I pray god for you , thalaivar and enthiran crew.

  69. jagadeesh says:

    Hi Sir,

    Its very great to us to have you in our indian film industry.Hats off to you sir,In all your film there are lot of social issues have taken & analyzed. Thats a good sign to the film industry. Here i need to tell you something which needs Immediate attention for our society,
    1. To change the attitude of the people, mindset should be changed to the next level. And this will happen from our next generation, i.e.,from schools, subject pattern should be changed & should be equal to all kind of schools (state board / central).
    2. Poilitics style in India should change as it should not be just money earning business, This could be well changed even from our current generation, as there should be some basic criteria which should be strictly followed to enter into politics.
    3. Agriculture level is slowly decreasing every year, people think this is not our job. Is it true??
    4. Education for everyone, ??
    5. Job for everyone, is it possible??

    These thoughts are already covered in your films , but after that is there an impact or people taking just for entertainment?? Your films obviously shows entertainment, social responsibility,technical excellence etc., And your next film should be a big success.

    Hope I am not taking your time so much , Sir finally I need to say one thing as per our tamil saying as “Thirudanaai paarthu thiruntha vital thiruttai ozlkka mudiyathu..” People please wake up…

    Hello Shankar sir, I am srikanth from AndhraPradesh. I am great fan of you. I saw all your films many times. I done my Engineering in AndhraUniversity. Now I am working as Software engineer in Good Company. But I want to become good director. Suggest me what needs to be done before entering into film industry.I have a great passion to become a director anyway I have to become director in future. For that one my plan is I wanna join film making university in California. Is my approach is correct or not. I wrote 5 scripts but till now i didn’t approach any director for apparent ship . Can you please suggest me what needs to be done. Please help me out when ever time permits you. It will give great helpful for my Career. waiting for your response.


  97. Raj says:

    Hello Shankar,

    I have followed your movies and like all of them.

    I am happy that finally you have created a forum where you could post official pictures this is a very healthy sign.

    I believe in this day and age the right amount of interest would be created if the movie posters,stills, promo trailer are released officially and you have done a brilliant job.

    So thank you for that.

    This is just the idea for the next movie of yours Endhiran as when I travelled to USA last year I visited Time Square in New York.There was this hoarding of some fragrance that could be seen from far off.First thing it hit me was what if the promo of Endhiran was done differently by choosing all the big cities around the world and have posters/hoardings in main places such that it would create buzz for the movie of yours.

    I believe Endhiran has the potential to break ground in terms of interest generated and what other manner than to generate the right amount of interest not only to our fans of the Indian Movies(Tamil) but to promote it to world wide audience. I think this could be done and wish you all the best.

    P.S: One of the ways of taking the movie to the world wide audience is to provide sub-titles and I missed it in Sivaji The Boss because there is lot of interest in our movies and we should do everything to promote it.

  98. balasrinivasulu says:

    I believe now with Avatar, the burden on every director involved in movie with SFX is under tremendous pressure. I believe you have always been ahead of times just like kamal sir, regarding latest technologies and i want to have a bet with my friends here in UK that endhiran is on par with any hollywood stuff. Best of luck to the entire team, hope hollywood freezes with the quality of endhiran

  106. Thilaag Nair says:

    Dear Sir,

    I would like to wish all the best and the movie will rock the screen. I would appreciate if the movie has English sub titles as here in MALAYSIA our thalaivar has alot of Malay & Chinese fans too. This is thier request so that they can enjoy the movie too. This will boost the movies gross income.

  107. Son Hanover says:

    Thanks for this cool post. Anyway i found your blog on yahoo and find it very useful. I’ll be sure to come back again for more!

  108. Kailas says:

    I’m a great fan of Rajni and You. There’s lot of hype and expectation on Endhiran, I’m pretty sure you would exceed all expectations, and will be trend setter in India film industry.

    It’s been a long wait and this film should make a history in collection and on par with any hollywood movie in this genre.

    Please release the movie with subtitles.

    Wishing you and your screw all the very best.

    Rajni and you rock!.

    Kailas Raman.

I jus wan to knw some details, u have choosen a particular building block of flats always in ur movies..

    Mudalvan– the scene arjun comes after the day as CM.
    the scene where he agrees to come to politics.
    the scene of house allotment.

    Boys– Maro Maro song

    Anniyan — the fight before interval in the night before the murder of motor shop company dealer.

    Sivaji– I think that scene where rajni tells to vivek that’rich get richer poor get poorer’ u showd that same building blocks n pink color..

    Why is t so ? Any special sentiment ?? Pls reply sir..

    hi shankar sir, will endhiran release before IPL.

  146. Subramaniyan says:

    Dear Sir,

    Happy New Year Sir…
    i like all of your movies beginning from GENTLEMAN. I expect ENDHIRAN to be the movie which should take TAMIL CINEMA to even greater heights.

    is it true that in Endhiran, you have used Animatronics concept and full movie is done in CG(for future use) before the actual shooting started?

    Happy Pongal wishes to you and your family.


  147. Sriram.S says:

    Hello Sir,

    This is sriram, a student of private engineering college in chennai. I participated in the shooting of endhiran which took place in our college few months ago. It was a conference scene. It was very inspiring to see the way you worked during the shoots . Especially your dedication, punctuality … a lesson to all youngsters….. Expecting a lot from Endhiran….and am confident that you will give more than what we expect.

    BTW, i also saw the movie “Children of Heaven”, quoted by a weekly tabloid as your favourite movie. Really one of the best movies i’ve ever seen till now. Especially the scene where the girl chasing the shoes along the stream was one of the best scenes in film history. I personally want you to direct such kind of movies . . . . I mean a different genre…..esp a Movie for children………

    All the best for your Endhiran…….GOOD LUCK…….

  168. Devan says:

    Pongal Nalvaazthukal, Shankar-sir (in advance). I’m happy that your blog has had such a fantastic response and I hope that more directors and actors from the Tamil industry will follow your lead.

    Like many others have suggested, I appeal to you to have English subtitles for the films released outside Tamil Nadu so that your films can reach a wider audience. Many non-Indians choose to watch Hindi films instead of Tamil films in the theatres because all Hindi films screened outside India have English subtitles.

    Another request, South Africa has tremendous potential as a location. So far, Tamil directors have only done song shoots here. Maybe you can break that trend and set part of your film in South Africa – Maybe a period film that looks at the role played by Gandhi or a look at the first settlers who arrived here from Chennai in 1860. There are many stories waiting to be told and you are the kind of director to handle that in the best way.

    We are all looking forward to the release date of Endhiran.

  169. Snapshankar says:

    Hi Shankar,
    Hope this day has been wonderful day and tomorrow will be Fantastic Day.Keep in touch.Bye for now.

    திரையரங்க ஆப்ரேட்டராக சில காலம் வேலை செய்த எனக்கு பிரமிப்பை ஏற்படுத்திய படங்கள் மிகவும் குறைவு. அந்தக் குறைவானவற்றில் நிறைவான திருப்தியை ஏற்படுத்தியவை என்றால் உங்களின் படங்கள் அனைத்தையும் சொல்லலாம்.இதை வெறும் புகழ்ச்சி என்று நினைக்கவேண்டாம்.

    பிலிம் சுருள் மறைந்து டிஜிட்டல் ஆதிக்கம் நிறைந்து வரும் இந்த நாட்களில் பிலிம் சுருள் மூலம் புரொஜக்டரில் படம் திரையிட்ட அந்த நாட்கள் எனக்கு மறக்க முடியாதவை. போட்டோபோன், வெஸ்ட்ரெக்ஸ் ஆகிய இரண்டு மெஷின்களையும் நான் இயக்கியிருக்கிறேன்.

    அவை புழக்கத்தில் இருந்து ஒதுக்கப்படுவது என் மனதில் ஒரு மவுன வலியை ஏற்படுத்திவிட்டது. ஆனாலும் தொழில்நுட்ப வளர்ச்சியில் சில விஷயங்கள் கணாமல் போவது தவிர்க்கமுடியாது என்பதை நான் உணர்ந்துதான் இருக்கிறேன்.சினிமா கண்டுபிடித்து சுமார் நூறு ஆண்டுகளாக சினி புரொஜக்டரின் அடிப்படைக் கட்டமைப்பில் பெரியதாக எந்த மாறுதலும் இல்லை.இதுவே அந்த தொழில்நுட்பத்துக்கு மாபெரும் பெருமைதான்.

    பல ஆண்டுகளாக ரசிகர்களை மகிழ்வித்த ஒரு கருவியை நானும் சில காலம் இயக்கியதே மனதுக்கு மகிழ்ச்சியைக் கொடுக்கிறது.

    இனி உங்கள் படங்கள் தொடர்பான என்னுடைய அனுபவங்கள்

    ஜென்டில்மேன் அறிமுகம்

    அப்போது நான் ஏழாம் வகுப்பு படித்துக்கொண்டிருக்கிறேன். 1993 தீபாவளி அன்று பக்கத்து வீட்டு சிறுவன் அவன் தாத்தாவுக்கு மதிய உணவு எடுத்துச்செல்லும்போது என்னையும் துணைக்கு அனுப்புகிறார்கள்.

    தாத்தா இருந்த இடம் ஒரு திரையரங்கம். சாப்பாட்டை வாங்கிய தாத்தா உடனே எங்களை வெளியில் அனுப்பவில்லை. இரண்டு டிக்கட்டுகளைக் கிழித்துக் கொடுத்து அடுத்த காட்சி மூன்று மணிக்கு. இருந்து பார்த்துட்டு போங்க என்கிறார். ஏதோ ஒரு அர்ஜூன் படம் பார்க்கப்போகிறோம் என்ற மனநிலைதான் எனக்கு.

    படம் தொடங்கிய பிறகு ஹீரோவைத்தாண்டி இயக்குநர்தான் என்மனதில் நிற்கிறார். என் வயதுடைய சிறுவர்கள் ரஜினி, கமல் என்று திரையில் முகம் காட்டுபவர்களை சிலாகித்து பேசிக்கொண்டிருக்கும்போது நான் ஷங்கர் என்ற பெயரை சொன்னதும் என்னை ஒரு அன்னியனாகத்தான் முதலில் பார்த்தார்கள்.மேஜையுடன் கூடிய என்னுடைய புத்தகங்கள் வைக்கும் பீரோவின் உள்பக்கம் எதோ ஒரு வார இதழில் இருந்த ஷங்கரின் பாஸ்போர்ட் சைஸ் புகைப்படத்தையும் கபில்தேவின் புகைப்படத்தையும்தான் ஒட்டி வைத்தேன். அதன் பிறகு வேறு எதையும் வெட்டி ஒட்டவில்லை.


    காதலன் பெற்ற கவனம்

    காதலன் படம் வெளியான அன்றே பார்த்துவிட்டு மறுநாள் பள்ளிக்குச் சென்றபோது சக நண்பர்களிடம் நான் பேசிக் காட்டிய வசனம் எது தெரியுமா?

    “என்னய்யா…புதுசா ஒரு குண்ட தூக்கிப் போடுற?”

    “என் தொழிலே அதுதான…”

    ஞானபீட விருது பெற்ற கன்னட எழுத்தாளர் கிரீஷ்கர்னாட் மற்றும் ரகுவரன் ஆகியோரிடையே நடைபெற்ற உரையாடலை அவர்கள் இருவருடைய மாடுலேஷனிலேயே அடிக்கடி பேசிக்காட்டுவேன்.

    சக மாணவர்கள் எல்லாம் கிரீஷ்கர்னாட் பெயரையே உச்சரிக்க முடியாமல் தடுமாறுவார்கள்.அதை மிகச்சரியாக உச்சரிப்பதாலேயே என் மனதில் சிறு கர்வம் உண்டு.


    இந்தியன் தந்த கம்பீரம்

    ஒன்பதாம் வகுப்பு ஆண்டுத்தேர்வு விடுமுறையில் இருந்தபோதுதான் இந்தியன் வெளியானது. அப்போது நான் மற்றொரு திரையரங்கத்தில் வேலை செய்துவந்தேன்.

    படம் பார்க்கச்சென்ற போது சுகன்யாவின் பிளாஷ்பேக்கில் வரும் கருப்புவெள்ளைக் காட்சிகள் அனைத்தும் இல்லை. கப்பலேறிப்போயாச்சு பாடல் மட்டுமே இருந்தது. அந்தக் காட்சிகளை வெட்டினார்களா என்பது தெரியவில்லை.

    நான்காவது கேனின் பிற்பகுதி, ஐந்தாவது கேனின் முற்பகுதி ஆகியவை கருப்புவெள்ளைக் காட்சிகளைக் கொண்டிருந்ததால் புரொஜக்டரில் ஓடும்போதே இந்தக் காட்சிகளைத் தவிர்த்திருப்பார்கள் என்று நினைக்கிறேன்.

    பிறகு படம் வந்து அறுபது நாட்களுக்குப் பிறகு மீண்டும் பார்க்கச் சென்றேன். அப்போது அந்தக் காட்சிகள் திரையிடப்பட்டன. சில ஆண்டுகள் கழித்து மற்றொரு திரையரங்கில் நான் வேலை செய்தபோது ஒரு வாரம் இந்தியன் படத்தை ஆசை தீர பார்த்து மகிழ்ந்தேன். படத்தின் இறுதியில் வரும் டைட்டில் முடியும் வரை கார்பன் ஒளியை நிறுத்தாமல் இருப்பதில் எனக்கு ஒரு சந்தோஷம்.


    ஜீன்ஸ் தந்த பிரமிப்பு

    அந்தப் படம் திருவாரூரில் ரிலீஸ் ஆகவில்லை என்பதால் நாகப்பட்டணத்தில் போய் பார்க்கலாம் என்று நானும் என் நண்பனும் திட்டமிட்டிருந்தோம். ஆனால் ஒரு கட்டிடத்தில் அன்று மேற்கூரையில் கான்கிரீட் போடும் முன்பு மின்சார வயர்களுக்காக குழாய்களைப் பொருத்தும் பணி இருந்தது. அதனால் சில வாரங்கள் கழித்து திருவாரூருக்கு அந்தப் படம் வந்தபோதுதான் பார்த்தேன். ஜாலியான கதையம்சம் கொண்ட அந்தப் படத்தில் பல காட்சிகளைப் பார்த்து நான் பிரமித்தாலும் ஏமாற்றம் தந்த காட்சி என்றால் கண்ணோடு காண்பதெல்லாம் பாடல்தான்.

    பாடலும் காட்சிகளும் பிரமாதம்தான். ஆனால் இரண்டையும் பொருத்திப் பார்க்க என் மனம் விரும்பவில்லை.


    என் மனதில் மட்டுமின்றி சைக்கிளிலும் இடம் பிடித்த முதல்வன்

    முதல்வன் படம் துவங்கும்போது நாளிதழ் விளம்பரத்தில் A MAN OF DESTINY என்று சப் டைட்டில் கொடுத்திருந்தீர்கள். அதை என் சைக்கிள் எழுதி ஆறு ஆண்டுகளுக்கும் மேல் வைத்திருந்தேன். பிறகு சைக்கிள் செயின் கவர் மாற்றும்போதுதான் அதுவும் மாறியது. அனைத்துக் காட்சிகளையும் ரசித்தேன்.ஆனால் நேர்காணல் காட்சியில் தொலைக்காட்சி நிறுவன எம்.டி எதோ கேட்டதும், “ம்…அரங்கநாதனை கொரங்கநாதனா ஆக்கிட்டான்.” என்று மணிவண்ணன் சொல்லும் உரையாடல்தான் அதிகமாக நினைவில் நின்றது.


    பக்கத்து வீட்டுப் பசங்களை நினைவூட்டிய பாய்ஸ்

    முதல்வனுக்குப் பிறகு நான் கல்லூரியில் படித்து முடிக்கும் காலத்தில் உங்கள் இயக்கத்தில் எந்த தமிழ்ப்படமும் வரவில்லை. 2003 ன் பிற்பகுதியில் பாய்ஸ் வெளியானபோது பலத்த விமர்சனம். தினமலர் குழுமத்தில் ஒரு தொலைக்காட்சி சேனல் பணிக்கு விண்ணப்பம் செய்திருந்தேன். அந்த நேர்காணலுக்காக நானும் என் நண்பனும் திருச்சி வந்திருந்தோம். வந்த வேலை முடிந்ததும் திருச்சி சோனா தியேட்டரில் படம் பார்க்க முடிந்தது.

    உங்கள் படங்கள் ஒவ்வொன்றிலும் பாடல்கள் ரசிகர்களைத் தாளம் போட வைத்தாலும் ஒட்டுமொத்தமாக பார்க்கும்போது பாய்ஸ் பாடல்கள் போல் எதுவும் என் மனதைக் கவரவில்லை.மெலோடியைப் பொறுத்தவரை ஜென்டில்மேனின் என்வீட்டுத்தோட்டத்தில், இந்தியனின் பச்சைக்கிளிகள் இரண்டும்தான் என் சாய்சில் முன்னிலை.

    புதுமுகங்கள்தானே என்றில்லாமல் மிகவும் சிரத்தையுடன்தான் பாய்ஸ் படத்தை உருவாக்கியிருந்தீர்கள்.படத்தில் பொய்களும் இல்லை. பிறகு ஏன் நிறைய பேருக்கு இந்தப் படத்தின் மீது இவ்வளவு வெறுப்பு?

    இயக்குநர் மகேந்திரன் ஒரு நூலில் எழுதியிருந்ததை இங்கே மேற்கோள் காட்டவேண்டிய சூழலில் இருக்கிறேன். கணவன் மனைக்கும் அந்தரங்க உறவு உண்டுதான். ஆனால் பெரும்பாலான குடும்பங்களில் மனைவி உடை மாற்றும் நேரத்தில் கணவனுக்குத் தடாதான். இந்த நாகரிகம் நம் கலாச்சாரத்துடன் பின்னிப் பிணைந்த ஒன்று. இப்போது நிறைய மாற்றங்கள் வந்திருக்கலாம். ஆனால் வெளிப்படையாக எதையும் ஏற்கும் மக்கள் இன்னும் தமிழ்நாட்டில் மிக அதிக எண்ணிக்கையில் இல்லை.

    மேலே உள்ள கருத்தை உணர்த்தும் வாக்கியத்தை இயக்குநர் மகேந்திரன் அவரது நூலில் எழுதியிருந்தார். இந்த உண்மை உங்களுக்கும் எப்பவோ புரிந்திருக்கும்.

    எழுத்தாளர் சுஜாதாவைப் பற்றி, இவர் இன்னும் இருபத்தைந்து ஆண்டுகளுக்குப் பின் எழுத வேண்டியதை இப்பவே சொல்லிட்டார் என்பார்கள். பாய்ஸ் படமும் அப்படித்தான் என்று கூறலாம்.

    ஆனால் இந்த மாதிரி படங்களில் வரும் நல்ல கருத்தை மக்கள் ஏற்றுக்கொண்டு, தவறானதை ஒதுக்கியிருக்கலாமே என்று நீங்கள் ஆதங்கப்படுவது புரிகிறது. நம் நாட்டு டீன்ஏஜ் குழந்தைகளுக்கு மட்டுமல்ல, பெரியவர்களுக்கும் இன்னும் அந்தப் பக்குவம் வரவில்லை.அதுதான் படத்தை விட்டே சற்று விலகிவிட்டார்கள். எதிலும் தெளிந்து இருப்பவர்கள் பிடிக்கவில்லை என்றதும் அவர்கள் பாட்டுக்கு எதுவும் செய்யாமல் புறக்கணித்துவிட்டு போய்க்கொண்டே இருப்பார்கள். அதிகமாக கண்டனம் செய்தவர்களைக் கவனித்தால் ஒரு தடுமாற்றம் இருப்பது தெரியும்.

    சுருங்கச் சொன்னால் வெறுமனே கண்டனம் செய்பவர்களிடம் உருப்படியான செய்ல்திட்டம் இருப்பது குறைவுதான்.


    ரொம்பவும் நெருக்கமான அந்நியன்

    யானை போவது தெரியாது. பூனையைதான் ஆராய்ச்சி செய்யத்தெரியும்.- என்று ஒரு பழமொழி சொல்வார்கள். இந்தப் படத்தைப் பார்த்தபிறகுதான் பூனை என்று அலட்சியமாக விடுவது எவ்வளவு பெரிய அழிவுகளை ஏற்படுத்திக்கொண்டிருக்கிறது என்று புரிந்தது.


    சிவாஜி பற்றி…

    யானை படுத்தாலும் குதிரை உயரம் என்று சூப்பர்ஸ்டார் பாபா படம் பற்றி சொன்னார். அதை சறுக்கலுக்கு வேண்டுமானால் உதாரணமாக சொல்லலாமே தவிர வெற்றிக்கான விளக்கமாக சொல்ல முடியாது. இதை தவறாக எடுத்துக்கொள்ள வேண்டாம். இமயத்தின் உயரத்தை நாங்கள் எதிர்பார்க்கும்போது தொட்டபெட்டா சிகரம் போதும் என்பது போல் சிவாஜி அமைந்துவிட்டது. அடிவாரத்தில் நின்று பார்க்கும் போது எங்களுக்கு வேண்டுமானால் அது பிரமாண்டமான உயரமாகத் தெரியலாம். ஆனால் நீங்கள் தொடவேண்டிய உயரம் வேறு.

    காதல் படத்தில் சரவணகுமார் சொல்வது போல்,”இன்னும் உங்ககிட்ட நிறைய எதிர்ப்பார்க்கிறோம்.”

    எந்திரன் நிச்சயமாக ஒரு மைல்கல்லாக அமையும். ஏனெனில் ஒரு படைப்பாளிக்கு எப்போதுமே சிறந்த படைப்பு அடுத்ததாக உருவாக்கப்போவதாகத்தான் இருக்கவேண்டும்.

    எஸ். பிக்சர்ஸ் தயாரிப்புகள் பற்றி…

    உங்களுடைய தயாரிப்பில் காதல் படத்தைப் பார்த்து விட்டு உள்ளூர் பத்திரிகை ஒன்றில் சிறு கட்டுரை எழுதினேன்.யானை படுத்தால் குதிரை உயரம் என்ற தலைப்பில்தான். நீங்கள் புதியவர்களின் புதிய முயற்சிக்கு ஆதரவு தந்து(பாலாஜி சக்திவேலுக்கு இரண்டாவது படமாக இருந்தாலும்) காதல் படம் தயாரித்தது போல் தமிழ்த்திரையுலகின் ஜாம்பவான்கள் பலரும் செய்தால் திரைத்துறை ஆரோக்கியமான பாதையில் தொடர்ந்து பயணம் செய்யும் என்பதுதான் கட்டுரையின் மையக்கரு.

    நீங்கள் கல்லூரி, இம்சைஅரசன்,ஈரம், என்று தொடர்ந்து கலைப்பணி செய்வதைக்கண்டு மகிழ்பவர்களில் நானும் ஒருவன்.

    உங்களிடம் உதவியாளராக இருப்பவர்களுக்கு சம்பளம் வேலை நேரம் உள்ளிட்ட விஷயங்களில் பிரச்சனை இல்லாமல் பார்த்துக்கொள்வதாக சொன்னார்கள். அதற்கே உங்களுக்கு பாராட்டுடன் நன்றி சொல்ல வேண்டும்.

    தங்கர்பச்சானிடம் உதவியாளராகப் பணியாற்றியவரின் குறும்படத்தில் நான் உதவியாளராக இருந்தேன். எனக்கு இந்த வாய்ப்பை ஏற்படுத்திக் கொடுத்தது தமிழ்நாடு அரசு குழந்தைத்தொழிலாளர் மறுவாழ்வு மையத்திடம் முதல்பரிசு பெற்ற என்னுடைய சிறுகதைதான்.

    என் மனதுக்குள்ளும் ஒரு படைப்பாளி உருவாகக் காரணம் ஏழாம் வகுப்பு படிக்கும் வயதில் ஜென்டில்மேனாக வந்த ஷங்கர்தான்.

    ஷங்கர் மற்றும் ஷங்கர் குடும்பத்தாருக்கு என்னுடைய பொங்கல் நல்வாழ்த்துகள்.

    (ஒரு பின்குறிப்பு:நீங்கள் டிப்ளமா படிக்கும்போது ஆசிரியராக இருந்த ஒருவர் பிறகு புதுக்கோட்டை ராயவரம் சுப்பிரமணியன் பாலிடெக்னிக்கில் முதல்வராக இருந்ததாக கேள்வி. அப்படியா?)

Hope Enthiran would be the biggest ever blockbuster in indian cinema and wish hollywood movies take clue from endhiran.

    Shankar Rocks ! Endhiran Rocks !


  196. Vineeth KP says:

    Hi sir.

    Make it a Shankar film…
    V all r wating 4 tat.
    Sir whts ur next project & wit whom?

  197. kishan says:

    Hi Shankar,
    Hoping Endhiran will be an awesome movie . Out of all your movies , my fav is Indian. It had a superbly executed screenplay, gripping storyline, slapstick comedy and spellbinding background score from rahman and of course great acting from kamal. I can actually talk on and on about things that i liked in Indian. Please make another movie in the lines of Indian.of course my other favs are Gentleman,Mudhalvan, anniyan.

  198. Ingharan - Canada says:

    Hi Shankar sir,
    I am a huge fan of yours. I’m also a huge fan of our beloved thala Ajith. I was wondering when would you direct our thala. We have been waiting eagerly forever for both of you join hands. Please If you have time, can you answer this question.

  199. Vimal says:

    I wish u to join wid AJITH and bring out best from him

  200. Mani says:

    Hi Sir,

    In recent interviews, AR Rahman had said that he hates the word Bollwood since it limits the spectrum of Indian Cinema. This is very true. After he won the oscars, other country people have started noticing Indian Cinema but still only Bollywood is given priority. I sincerely wish that this should change. Even North people are not aware of what Tamil cine industry is capable of. I heard that Robo is releasing in Hindi too. In case, if it is not so, then please RELEASE ROBO DUBBED IN HINDI OR WITH ENGLISH SUB-TITLES. I am sure that many other state people will watch if this is done and they will know how good Tamil industry is. I know the impact Sivaji created in Mumbai since I was there at that time. Many north people wanted to watch it but they didnt watch just because they cannot understand. I want more people to watch our Tamil movies. I saw the latest stills of our Superstar, he looks awesome. He rocks even at 60 :)

  201. Baskar says:

    That will be enough for us.
    And one more common request by all our thalaivar fans.

    Take extra care of our thalaivar….and also, convey our loving wishes and regards to our thalaivar……

  202. vijayan.T says:

  213. Venky says:

    Hello Shankar,
    Nice to see a blog from you…Please complete the Endhiran shooting soon and release the movie atleast before May2010.
    I am sure it will create waves all over the world.


  214. Gtamilvel says:

    Am a greates fan of Our thalaivar since my childhood days and it gives me greatest pleasure that you both have joined hands together..
    my only suggestion is that definitely all the fans will enjoy thalaivar only if there is punch dialogue with his sharp piercing looks in a close up shot with a terrific BGM.

    According to me this only keeps all the fans in greatest bond with the fans or any people..
    This only keeps us in charge throughout even after coming out of the theatre..
    this is my request on behlf of all our fans..
    Dear SHANKAR JI ..we all are craving very much for it..
    pl keep atleast 5 punch dialogues
    thankin you..

  215. kumaresan says:

    All the best for Robot tremendous hit and for the Upcoming projects….

  219. Bharathnryn says:

    Hi sir.. first of all congrats for taking tamil cinema to new heights… I have few questions. There is lot of confusions around the Endhiran crew.

    I want to know whether Yuen woo ping is still the action choreographer for endhiran..Also want to know which company is in charge of visual effects..? Costume is still Mary E. Vogt..? Please please clarify these confusions…

  220. Sasikumar says:

    Hi Sir,

  234. shakthi says:

    All the very best Shankar sir.. are there plans to release Endhiran in the west in a big way like the chinese movies do ? We had some speculations that HBO and Sun TV are entering into a deal for releasing it a big way in the western world..
    Thanks sir.. wish ENDHIRAN will be BIGGER than the BIGGEST that we have ever seen on celluloid !

    hello sir…..
    when ENDHIRAN audio will be out?

  237. Krillin says:

    Hi Shankar,
    I was wondering if you could confirm some cats members so confusion doesn’t arise like it did in Sivaji (where people thought Prakash Raj/Amitabh Bachchan/Mallika Sherawat) was a part of the film.

    So so far we have got: Rajinikanth, Aishwarya Rai, Danny Denzongpa, Kalabhavan Mani, Cochin Hanifa, Santhanam, Karunas, Raghav, Devadarshini, Revathi Sankaran anyone else?

  238. Giri says:

    Welcome to blogging world.All the for endhiran.You must ask cine personality to start blogging. we want our thailvar to start as big b does.

    Internet is big place to share innovation

    1.You can have a forums to discuss with fans,twitter to follow when you move.

    2.You can have talent hunt site to get new stories,new talent for acting,music and more.

    This is my suggestion to make internet more than blogging.

    ஷங்கர் சார் ,

    ரஜினி யின் சண்டை காட்சி என்றால் இன்று வரை பாஷா சண்டை காட்சி தான் அதுக்கு அப்புறம் அப்படி ஒரு பவர் புல்லான சண்டை காட்சிய நாங்க பாக்கல
    அடுத்து தரம்
    எனதான் தமிழ் சினிமா பல தொழில் நுட்பத்தில் வளர்ந்தது என்று பேசப் பட்டாலும் …
    எதாவது சண்டை காட்சி வந்தால் உடனே அது அந்த ஆங்கில படத்தின் தழுவல் என்று சாதரணமா சொல்லிடறாங்க பலபேரு உயிரை கொடுத்து உழைத்த உழைப்பை சர்வ சாதரணமா அலட்சிய படுதிட்றாங்க …
    இனி நீங்க உங்க படத்துல வரும் சண்டை காட்சிகள் முக்கிய கவனம் செலுத்தனும் அதிலும்
    உலக சினிமால இப்படி ஒரு சண்டை காட்சியை எந்த படத்திலும் பார்த்ததிலே என்று உலகமே கொண்டாடனும் அதும் எங்க ரஜினி படத்தில அது இந்த எந்திரன்ல இருக்கனும் என்பது எனது விருப்பம்
    இனி வெளிநாட்டில் ஹாலிவுட் ல வரபோகும் படத்தின் சண்டை காட்சிகள் நம்ம எந்திரன் படத்தின் தழுவலா இருக்கனும்
    எங்க தமிழ் படத்தின் காப்பி இதுன்னு நாங்க அவங்கள பார்த்து சொல்லணும்
    அதும் ஸ்டைல் சக்ரவர்த்தி கூட சேர்ந்து இருக்கீங்க
    இருவரும் சேர்ந்தால் அதன் தாக்கம் என்ன என்பதை
    புரியவைங்க இந்த உலகிற்கு
    உங்களால் இது முடியும்

    Hello Sir,

    Your effort to catch up with fans like us inspite of your busy schedule of ‘Endhiran’ proves you to be a workaholic perfectionist… Hats Off…

    A question on Mr.Sujatha Rangarajan, sir. I think his absence cannot be just described. Your ‘இரங்கல் கடிதம்’ spoke a million words. Really heart breaking.

    Have you read his work ‘சொர்க்க தீவு’. I would like to see it on silver screen with ur direction. What is your favourite one from Mr.sujatha, sir? and Does enthiran the robot have any inspiration taken from the plot of ‘என் இனிய இயந்திரா’ and ‘மீண்டும் ஜீனோ’?

    Kindly repli when you find time, sir.

    Arun Kumaar S

  251. Muthu says:

    Hoping for a mega blockbuster movie which will break all sorts of records and establish the status of Superstar as the King of Indian Cinema. Kudos to the entire team of Endhiran :)

  252. pradeep says:

    hello sir….
    Will Enthiran be a SHANKAR movie or RAJNI movie?
    what about the songs sir and its sets? are you
    shooting all songs in sets or in natural locations?
    Have you made changes in story since you had planned this movie with Kamal?

  253. Sutheswaran Naidu says:

    Sure, take your own time finishing the movie sir, we want world-amaze perfection quoting stylish action sequence. AVATAR is from James Cameron, likewise ENDHIRAN is from Shankar. Any idea on when the promos will kick off and audio will be out?

  254. PC says:

    I double with KNP. I just hope Endhiran is a shankars movie in which Rajini has acted.

  255. Arun says:

    No probs, blog whenever possible and keep us posted on interesting things happened/happening during the making of Endhiran.

  267. Michael says:

    Dear Shankar,
    I saw you the first time acting as a helper in one of the movies behind a villain. You have had a tremendous growth and I am sure you have worked really hard for that.
    Right now, I am studying abroad. It will be great if you release the movie in US with English subtitles. Many of my North Indian friends are still ignorant of the greatness of Tamil Movies. I can show your movie to make them understand that.


  268. karthikeyan says:

  273. Barani says:

    A very happy new year!!!!
    Am a great fan of urs…am also die hard fan of Late Sujatha…am also great fan of rajini sir and mozart A.R.R…this team is a great combo…this team already seen a tremendous success with THE BOSS…now its time for enthiran to hit the box office(s)…my kudos and wishes to ur team…actually i want to know does Sujatha penned the dialogs and script for this film?if he pens the dialog its a treat for all, but in this film it would av been a step ahead as the film is sci-fi, which is his favorite area…did his absence affect u sir?

  274. B.Karthikeyan says:

    I’m a big fan of urs’. Especially i love the way u handpick the scripts for ur banner. Thats a tremendous insight. ‘Veyil’ had a grt impact on me. It is a movie which i think can b compared to the top movies of the world. Pls, try different genres. As a fan of urs’ i like u to concentrate more on the script…..’cause i think u’ve more potential than u exhibit.
    ThanQ. :)

    Hi sir, I know you will be busy all the time. One suggestion regarding this blog. just appoint one person(or your PA) to monitor this blog 24/7. And ask him to post your comments as it will be very difficult for you to come online all the time.

    I want Endhiran to be the biggest film in INDIA. And no film in bollywood should overtake our ROBO.
