Shankar has revealed the news on his website. He posted, “When we were shooting at Bharath Engineering College last week, I got a call from Singapore. I thought it must be some relatives or fans. Then, I thought may be Rajini sir, yes… It was him only,"
He further adds, “ I was surprised and happy to hear from him… Ubhayakusalobhari!!! (UBKS)… etc . He was sounding like before… Brisk and energetic… He told he will be back after 45 days taking a complete rest."
Rajinikanth and Shankar have worked together in blockbuster hits like Sivaji and Endhiran. However, the director is currently busy with his upcoming Tamil film Nanban, which is a remake of 3 Idiots. The movie features Vijay, Srikanth, Jeeva, Ileana D'Cruz in the lead roles.
