As a director, whatever Shankar has touched has turned gold. But as a
producer, he has not tasted any success. This had forced him to
stop producing or buying any movie. Now, the time has come for him
to give a new lease of life to his S Pictures.
Shankar, who is getting ready for the audio release of his
directorial movie Ai, has bought forthcoming Tamil movie
Kappal. The movie is directed by his former associate
Karthik, who had worked as an assistant director to him in
Sivaji and Endhiran - The Robot. The film has
Vaibhav, Sonam Bajwa, Karunakaran and others in the cast.
Kappal is an out-and-out comedy movie, which has
impressed Shankar. Earlier, the director has said that he ventured
into production not to make money but to encourage the movies of
young talents made on meagre budgets.
Now, this flick by the young team has got a boost with the
maverick director buying the movie. This development will now make
many distributors to come forward and acquire theatrical rights of
different regions. Kappa is likely to release after Shankar's
much-awaited Ai, which stars Vikram and Amy Jackson in the lead
roles, hits the screens in October.
