In what is touted as a deadly multi-starrer combo, it seems that the biggest K-Town director might join hands with the mass and class star icons of this generation. Buzz is that Shankar is all set to rope in Chiyaan Vikram and Ilayathalapathy Vijay for his upcoming movie post the successful completion and release of Rajinikanth-Starrer 2.O.
Shankar is in the process of making India's costliest movie ever, 2.O, with high standards and extremely above par visual effects. The movie might as well end up as the biggest grosser ever if the same is complimented with positive word of mouth post release.
If the desired results are achieved, then the grandeur director will have no limits in terms of production values as the budgetary constraints would not pose as an obstacle to the Enthiran director.
Chiyaan Vikram, who is having a promising line up with movies such as Dhruva Natchathiram and Sketch would definitely be a big booster to the movie with his exceptional acting prowess and his Box Office pull at the AP/TG and OS circuits. The 51-year-old actor has already worked with Shankar in Anniyan and 'I' can easily comprehend and complement Shankar's vision.
Ilayathalapathy is on a roll with Theri being the actor's lifetime blockbuster movie and his next venture with Atlee, the director of Theri, is seeming to be an enormous venture by all yardstick.
The Ghilli actor is planning his career in a measured manner and if the actor join hands with his Nanban director along with his off-screen friend, Chiyaan Vikram, then it calls for some serious damage to the box office.
Recently, both Vijay and Vikram were spotted at a party hosted by Shankar which was said to be a celebration to commemorate Akshay Kumar's winning of National Award in the category of Best Actor. Akki is playing the role of an antagonist in 2.O and Shankar, in order to celebrate the happiness of his present colleague had invited his supposed future colleagues.
Shankar who is a brand by himself has a dominant hold on all four Southern states and a decent amount of pull in the northern circuits.
The maverick director stands next to Superstar Rajinikanth in the overseas market (i.e., USA, UK, Malaysia, Singapore etc.). Vikram can boast of a good market in the AP/TG circuits whilst Vijay commands an exceptional following in TN, Kerala and Sri Lankan circuits.
With the three spearheads coming together under a single umbrella and forming a team, one could look out for some high voltage action in the movie.
