“Whatever you do, do it big…really BIG” – this seems to be the motto of director Shankar. He has directed 12 films so far in his 13yrs of filmy career and all those films were remarkable hits!
And most of his films were made on big fat budgets with all Superstars on the cards. What amazes the common cine-goer is that all his films which involve whopping budgets get him huge returns just like some boomerang! Well, that is Shankar’s Magic!
Even now, his upcoming film Ai (Manoharudu in Telugu) starring Chiyan Vikram and Amy Jackson is made on a jaw-dropping budget of Rs. 185 crores and is getting the biggest theatrical release ever in Indian film history. According to an official estimate, Ai is getting released in almost 20,000 theaters worldwide and surprisingly, the film is releasing in about 15,000 theaters in China alone (out of the 30,000 theaters).
Currently, the movie is under post-production and the makers are planning to release the film on the 22nd of October. Meanwhile, the audio composed by AR Rahman shall release on the 15th of September. However, the details of the Telugu audio release are not yet confirmed.
Shankar and Vikram are all set to bang the box-office like never before!
