The pre-production works of Shankar's next tentatively titled Therdal seems to be happening in a rapid pace. The latest to hear about the upcoming film is that the filmmaker is now finalising his female lead for the film based on anti-corruption.
Well, Asin Thottumkal and Priyanka Chopra are on Shankar's wish list. The director is very particular about casting an actress, who have base in Bollywood, as the film will be a multilingual. Considering that both the girls have worked before in Tamil films, the Endhiran creator has short-listed their names.
It may be recalled about Shankar and Asin Thottumkal's meeting at a function in Mumbai, where they had a lengthy chat at an event. It was also said that both the director and the actress expressed their sadness on missing out opportunities to work with each other on earlier occasions.
However, Shankar has roped in writers SuBa (Suresh and Balakrishnan) to pen the screenplay, which throws light on cash-for-vote scam.
