Shankar says, "I am too busy with Rajinikanth-Aishwarya starrer Endhiran promotions and only after that I can speak about 3 Idiots project.". The Aamir Khan starrer movie, which had garnered over Rs.300 crore at the Box Office, is being remade in Tamil and Telugu.
Speaking about Endhiran, Shankar says that the idea of the film came to him when he decided to make a film on non-living objects. "The Robot is close to human beings. The film dwells on human relationships. It is about seeing ourselves in the mirror.", he added.
Shankar, who last directed Rajinikanth in Sivaji - The Boss, has admitted that his first choice was Kamal Hassan. "I wanted to start the film in 2000, but things could not be put in place," he added.
Lauding Aishwarya's efforts, Shankar says that Aish was writing all her Tamil dialogues in English a day before and was coming well prepared to the sets next morning. "She is thorough professional.", the director said.
When asked about Endhiran being the costliest movie in the Indian film industry, Shankar says that the movie is priceless in terms of hard work put in by the team and not in terms of budget.
