What next for Shankar? Vijay?

Shankar will complete ‘Endhiran’ in August and be ready for his next. But what is that next? ‘Endhiran’ was launched in early 2008 and has taken a good two and a half years of Shankar’s time. But the effort is worth the wait as ‘Endhiran’ is going to be the biggest Tamil film ever made.

‘Endhiran’ releases for Diwali and after that Shankar is roumoured to take up a film for Gemini Labs. Though called rumour there is still a talk in trade circles that the film Shankar would be doing for Gemini is the Tamil remake of ‘3 Idiots’. Gemini has the south Indian remake rights for the epic hit ‘3 Idiots’ which starred Aamir Khan, Madhavan, Sharman Joshi and Kareena Kapoor. The production house is said to have even sounded that Vijay has agreed to play Aamir in the Tamil version.

A film by Shankar wit Vijay is long due. He went online sometime back saying “Many of Vijay fans wanted to know when I am going to do a film with them. Already I had ideas of doing ‘Mudhalvan’ with Vijay (next to Rajini Sir). If a script suits Vijay I’ll definitely do a film with him”. Putting pieces together the pundits feel that suitable script is this and Shankar will direct Vijay at last.
