Hi Everyone!

It’s been a while… Was busy with the pre production of my next film, which I’ve titled ‘ஐ’. In tamil ‘i’ means beauty, king, guru, astonishment, vulnerability (softness/gentleness) etc. Produced by Aascar Films V.Ravichandran… And music composed by A.R.Rahman…

Starring Vikram, Santhanam, Malayalam super star Suresh Gopi, Ramkumar (Nadigar Thilakam Sivaji Ganesan’s eldest son) and many more… It’ll be my first venture with veteran DoP PC Sriram & writer duo SuBa.

Costume designer of ‘Men in Black’ series Mary Vogt is designing special costumes. Peter Ming of China and our own Anal Arasu will provide the daredevil stunts. Australian Rising Sun Pictures (RSP) who mesmerized us in the Harry Potter series are in charge of the VFX, and will be supervised by Srinivas.M.Mohan. Art Director Muthuraj and Editor Antony also make my team yet another time…

Under A.R.Rahman’s baton, written by Kabilan, a song was recorded recently which was sung by Vijay Prakash.

This is not a political film or about elections…
This is a full ‘N full Romantic Thriller…

The film will go on the floor from mid-July…

    Hello Sir,

    Congrates: Film title “I” is very nice one. Like Jeans and Boys…”I” is different.

    Questions:1. What is the Secret to bring “veteran DoP PC Sriram” for this particular movies, why not brought for your movies from G.Man to Nanban?
    Any suspense? Somebody says he will be very strict about “Lightings” etc…related to Shooting. Do you agree with this ?
    2. What is the secret behind in the Artists bringing from Outside such as Australian Rising Sun Pictures (RSP)/
    Costume designer of ‘Men in Black’ series Mary Vogt ?
    Why sir , we [INDIA(N)] don’t have more talents in INDIA?

    If possible, kindly reply, SIR!

    Hi Sir,

    Here’s a fan art of your upcoming film “I”

    Looking forward to the actual poster & the movie…

  82. Sankar Babu says:

    Hi Sankar ji,

    First My hearty congrats and wishes to your new script ‘I’. Iam a fan of PC Sreeram sir,I like your work and I admire AR.R magics….Vikram is a proved and versatile actor. So this film will defenitely be a box-office hit.
    My second one is, in an interview with Randy by Aanada vikatan, he said that sequel of Endhiran 2 will come and you have started the scripting work already. What happened to that, is it shelved or it may come?? If it is shelved, please try to make a script for Thalaivar (try an action/thriller film with his current suitable age)and give us once again a world blockbuster hit.

    Please reply on this. Thanks

    sir,we expect some message through this film….

  114. Sajath says:


    I am a great fan of your films, right from Gentleman to Enthiran (I wont say Nanban because I wasn’t happy with the remake of a Hindi film even though it was a blockbluster film..sir you are more than that..you don’t need the remakes..people should remake your movies). We need to see the old Shankar who would surprise us with the themes, songs, actions, music, picturization, great acting, good comedy, etc. You give us a complete package. Hats off to you sir.

    I am glad to hear that you would be making a new film soon titled “I” (very interesting title..can be related to today’s generation like the title you selected for film “Jeans”), but I kindly request you to please finish it within a year…I can’t wait for more than that. Every film you start I would check on internet or news to see when it releases. I know quality will take time, but we need to see more of your movies.

    I am really proud of you sir. I some times think..if you would have been born in USA, you would be making bigger films than Michael Bay, James Cameron and Steven Spielberg. Thanks for entertaining all Indians!

  115. karthik v says:

    fantastic sir… title is awesome. you are the only person taken out the complete talent of vikram. now once again vikram got the opportunity of showcase his talents. some directors wasted his talent. but you brought out his best in anniyan. iam ur fan since gentleman. expecting something unseen in the world cinema. all the very best. your’s biggest sincere fan – karthik v.

  116. Raj says:

    Dear Shankar,

    Thanks for the Post about your next movie. All the very best and hope it is a blockbuster.
    Since you have roped in Vikram I assume it is a very strong script, in the sense it requires a strong skill set for an actor to perform that role.

    I know you would be very busy working on the shooting schedule for ‘I’ at the moment however a sicere request from me. For your next script please a choose a story that is based in the 14th or 15th century (a period film basically). In that way it will be a challenge for yourself and also to your team as it is quite unknown area for Tamil films (technically to reproduce that era) and also to match the art/music setting. Lot of scope for VFX as well. I am definite that you can still manage to put in the masala elements and galmour to that somehow.

    Looking forward to hear from you.

    Warm regards,

  117. Raja says:

    Superb Sir. We are waiting for another blockbuster by Shankar-Vikram Combo.Congrats Thalaiva…..

    Hi Shankar sir iam big fan our films in Andhra pradesh.. ;I’ movie all the best S*H*A*N*K*A*R sir

  143. sarankan says:

    Congradulations. Though Vikram is a tremendous actor, he may not suit romantic thrillier.Now a days he is not in form; his latest release was not commercial hit. With your stature you can try new faces or some of the upcoming artisits. May rethink on the starcast. Any how all the best.

  144. kamal says:

    all the best sir

  145. muralikrishna says:

  149. keyan says:

    All the best sir but keep distance from remakes you are an icon someone should refer your films.After endhiran you became a milestone in indian cinema but picking nanban is a wrong choice anyhow past are lesson
    Please plan movie with thala which will be the most xpected movie of the era.

    THALA+SHANKAR will weave a magic in history of collections who produces will become a billionaire

    so pls sir plan for it

  150. sathish frm tirunelveli says:

    thanks sir i realy expect this film.gud and nature director sanker sir only not for equal any director.then 50nth film of vikram. Al fans wishes to al are. Sucs ths film.askar avard chances to get it congralated to every workes of ths i film.

  151. Sriram Sridhar says:

    ” In tamil ‘i’ means beauty, king, guru, astonishment, vulnerability (softness/gentleness) etc”


    Which of these meanings does your film title mean? Since its a romantic thriller I guess it will be beauty. Is that so?



    Hei our shankar,
    one of the happy thing is that teaming up with subha (duo Writers). They are excellent writers since 20 years, specialised in crime and Military novels, highly nation spirited.They are well done for dialogues in “ko”.Actually I was worrying who shankar will replace for the excellent writer “sujatha”. Now, I feel happy not only for taking them with you but I think you are the only Tamil Director who Teams up with Novel writers.
    Am I correct?
    Hats of for the past and all the best for the future.
    Ever your admiring Fan
    Venkataramanan. 9444922112

  158. Rajendran Thiagarajan says:

    Just connecting the plots of ‘ஐ’(Beauty, king, guru, astonishment, vulnerability):-

    PC Sriram knows for toned output, Ram Kumar Hairstyle, Mary Vogt customer designer, Harry Potter graphic designer and so on…

    Seems like you are trying to make periodic film, Is it correct?

    Our culture have more number of histories about kings, I think you are trying to tell one of interesting story.

    Anyway, All the Best… We will keep thinking, keep our finger cross and guessing until movie release.

    Lets thriller starts right from today…

  159. Satish Kumar says:

    Super sir..my advance wishes to all the cast and crew of the film. Bring out something new from chiyaan vikram this time. I knew actor vikram can do anything in acting……

    Your hardwork will never go waste as usual.

  160. RAJKUMAR says:

    Hello Drona,

    How are you?

    The title ‘I’ really sounds good. Good to see you again with Vikram.
    During Enthiran we were proud that you are a Tamizhan. This time India must proud on you that you are INDIAN. I am personally, expecting this movie will be made in such a way.

    All the best!!!

  205. kumar N says:

    Dear shankar Sir – Best Wishes
    Its right choosing PC Sriram, bcos after cameraman Jeeva your films are not fulfilled in photography, all films look like a rush and even though you use latest technology i cant able to feel close with the story(except MUDHALVAN)and not close to travel like Gentleman, Kadhalan and Indian which gives the Hollywood height quality in cinematography.
    In ‘ஐ’ Do the best in Script ant better in Screen-play like Hollywood Movies, and in future think little about the INDIAN part 2 also.


  206. Saran says:

    Congrats Shankar and all the best to your team. Unlike few of your earlier films, spend more time on the graphics part to avoid any silly/logical mistakes in the big screen.. All the best again.
