Shankar to make movie under home banner with Raju Murugan!

October 26, 2012

Director Shankar remains one of the most successful directors in the history of Indian films. The director, who is widely referred to as the director with a Midasí Touch, had his Nanban releasing in January this year. Starring Vijay, Jiiva, Srikanth and Ileana, the Tamil remake of Bollywood super-duper hit 3 Idiots proved to be an average grosser at the box-office, unlike Shankarís Rajini-starrers Sivaji: The Boss and Enthiran: The Robot.

Shankar has also made many films under his home production ĎSí Pictures. Some of the significant hit films by him as a producer are Balaji Sakthivelís Kaadhal and Kalloori, Vasanthabalanís Veyil, Cimbudevanís Imsai Arasan 23-m Pulikesi and Arivazhaganís Eeram. However, films such as Arai Enn 304-l Kadavul, Ananthapurathu Veedu and Rettaichuzhi proved to be unprofitable ventures.

Following the debacle of Thamira-directed Rettaichuzhi in 2010, Shankar had put on hold making films under his home banner. Now, after more than two years ago, he has announced that ĎSí Pictures would be making films again. Shankar is introducing a debutant director in author Raju Murugan. It turns out that Shankar loved a script narrated to him by Raju some time back and decided to make him the director.

Sources close to Shankar say that depending upon the success of the as-yet-untitled film to be directed by Raju, ĎSí Picture would continue to produce films. Shankar is also said to be toying with the idea of directing a film for his banner.
