There were recently rumours that Shankar will be directing Ajith in his next movie. The director is currently busy with Vikram and Amy Jackson's Ai and after wrapping up this project, it was said that he would be moving on to his next flick with the Thala.

The Tamil superstar had reportedly told Shankar that he could not take up the project citing his other commitments like Lingaa.
