Shankar’s much awaited film starring Chiyaan Vikram, Manoharudu (I in Tamil) is fast pacing to complete the climax scenes. Director Shankar roped in the best – be it the technicians, the artists or the make up team, to make the film stand out in his unique style. Amy Jackson plays the female lead in the movie.
Major part of action scenes were wound up in Vizag and Orissa, with Vikram and Upen Patel. Shankar got in a special team of make up artists of WETA, New Zealand, to work on Vikram’s avatar in the movie. This action thriller will have ‘Madras Mozart’ A R Rahman, composing the music. P C Sreeram is handling the cinematography.
This would be a major project for Vikram, most importantly as his last film, Thaandavam could not make any impact at Box Office. Shankar’s association with Vikram will be an element of excitement for the movie goers this summer. Vikram plays two unique roles in the film, ages apart – one of that of a 15 year old. He has underwent some hectic makeup sessions for the same.
I aka Manoharudu is slated for a summer release this April.
