Tamil filmmaker Shankar is considered the country’s most expensive director, and he has an impeccable box office record too. He’s delivered a string of hits including Jeans, Indian, Mudalavan, Boys, and Sivaji, and his latest film, Enthiran: The Robot starring Rajnikant and Aishwarya Rai was made on a budget of Rs 150 crores reportedly. The film will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. In this interview Shankar talks about working with Rajnikant, and the special effects in Enthiran.

  1. Such a simple and humble guy. No doubt he is one of the best director of India.
