The always tight-lipped and high tech showman director Shankar has finally broken the silence about his much-awaited film. This time, he has spoken about the perfect combination of of Shivaji. He revealed for all to know that the film is a clean entertainer that would not only entertain Rajini's die-hard fans but also all cinema lovers in general.
"Shivaji will set a new high for a Rajini film. I hope the film will be an ecstatic experience to every cinema viewer. Working with a superstar like Rajini is not an easy job. But Rajini, the real superstar made it very easy for me. I enjoyed working with this incomparable actor. Many have been asking me about his various getups and styles used in this film. There are hardly 15 days left before the release of the film. I don't like to comment anything about the censorship and other matters connected with its business," said director Shankar.
The director also said that Rajini appears in many getups including that of late legend MGR and Shivaji for a song sequence. In the Telugu version, he appears as N.T. Rama Rao and Chiranjeevi. Its Telugu version can't be called a dubbed version, as the director has made all efforts to present it also as original as possible with Telugu flavor.
Asked whether he is satisfied with the outcome of the film, he said, "Sure. I never allow any scene in my films without getting satisfaction. Shivaji is no exception."
