Shankar’s I in financial trouble, but aiming Pongal release, New Technology, Bollywwod Actor…


Director Shankar together with Chiyaan Vikram has worked out the best magic through the film ‘Anniyan‘, which stands out as the all time favourite of even non-Tamil speaking cohort.

Now that the duo has returned back with ‘I‘ , there are mixed reports pertaining to their combination.

After “Anniyan“, the success combo ShankarVikram is joining hands for the upcoming movie “I”. The movie shooting is happening on a brisk pace for which Aascar Ravichander is producing the movie. Sources close to the unit say that the film will be completely ready by the end of the year and is likely to hit screens for Pongal in 2014, as it involved a heavy post production.

Vikram will be sporting two different looks for Shankar’s I and recently he went to China to reduce 5 kg. It is heard that one of the look is beefed up, well toned look with 125 kg weight and another is lean 45 Kg look. Now it has come to know that Vikram was spotted in the city with a completely shaved head, leading to believe that the tonsured look too is going to be part of Shankar’s ‘I’.

Amy Jackson is the heroine and she plays the role of an international model. Suresh Gopi and Ramkumar play pivotal roles. Bodybuilding champions M. Kamaraj and M. Arasu will also play prominent roles in this flick. The film is reportedly made with an whopping Rs. 80 crores budget.


AR Rahman is scoring the music while PC Sriram cranks the camera. Peter Ming of China along with Anal Arasu will choreograph the action scenes. The film will have dialogues written by Suba (Suresh and Bala) while Rising Sun Pictures (RSP) (of Harry Potter fame) will oversee the VFX works. Mary Vogt of “Men in Black” fame will be the costume designer.

While the business circles are claiming that it’s a big doubt whether a film of Rs. 80+ Crore will be able to do spin the profit in spite of having Shankar brand.

Meanwhile, the sources mention that the shooting of this film has been stalled due to some financial issues. The next schedule of this film has been pushed to July 1 and Aascar Ravichandran is heavily worked on to sort about the financial constraints.

Vikram is vigorously hitting gyms to shed 15 Kgs and Shankar is in Bangalore involved in the script discussions for his upcoming film.

New technology in Shankar’s I

Sources said the director, who has been roping in leading technicians from abroad for his recent projects, is presently in America working on some new techniques to be employed in I.

This is before the team gears up for the next schedule of shooting which is likely to kick off in the second week of June.

It is said that Shankar has hired the services of the VFX team that worked on Peter Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings series for I.

Bollywood Actor

Now the latest is that Bollywood actor Upen Patel of ‘36 China Town‘ fame will be doing a crucial role in the film.
