Top director Shankar is presently toying with Superstars of Indian film Industry. Shankar himself revealed that Superstar Rajanikanth was the first choice for his hit film ‘Indian'(Bharateeyudu) which eventually starred Ulaganayakan Kamal Hasan. He said Rajani was the original choice for his another blockbuster ‘Mudalvan'(Oke Okkadu) featuring Arjun.
Shankar confessed that though Rajani didnot feel for not doing ‘Mudalvan’, he many times asked him why didn’t he reveal the full story of ‘Indian’. Similar is the case of Kamal Hasan. Shankar planned ‘Enthiran'(Robot) with Kamal way back in 1998 and even proceeded to shoot some part of it with Kamal as Robot. But for unknown reasons the project was shelved. Later he scored a sensational hit with SUperstar Rajani in ‘Enthiran’.
Shankar’s musical chairs with these two superstars is not ending with his plans to cast Kamal Hasan in ‘Enthiran'(Robot) sequel and Rajanikanth in ‘Indian'(Bhaarateeyudu) sequel. Some feel he is trying to please both of them and their hurt egos. But Shankar is also getting ready to do a prestigious venture featuring both Kamal and Rajani.
