Who will Shankar direct after Ai? There have been many reports on his forthcoming movie. Starting from Kamal Hassan to Rajinikanth, many names were doing rounds. But now, there is a name that is emerging from rumour mills. We hear that the maverick filmmaker is planning to direct none other than Ajith Kumar!
Rumour mills say that Shankar has plans to direct an action thriller with Ajith Kumar. The talks are on and the project is likely to be materialised. It is said that Thala was impressed by the narration and the Arrambam star has given green signal for the project. Reports say that the director's first choice was Rajinikanth.
Aascar Ravichandran, who is very close to Shankar and also producing his forthcoming movie Ai, has come forward to produce the mega-budget project. The producer is excited about the plan and the project is expected to take off in December 2014. But sources say that the team is yet to start the serious talks on the movie.
Meanwhile, Shankar is busy with his much-awaited Ai starring Ajith Kumar and Amy Jackson. On the other end, Ajith Kumar is gearing up to start his next movie with Gautham Menon. It is likely to kick-start on February 24.
