Director Thiagarajan's Ponnar Shankar is ready for release. Inspired by Chief Minister M Karunanidhi's novel, the movie stars Prashanth in dual roles.
'Prashanth entered films very early and since then, I’ve always wanted to do something big for him. He is an expert in martial arts and I wanted to put that talent of his to good use. The story of Ponnar - Shankar had immense scope for exhibiting his martial skills. I approached Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, with the project and he immediately gave me the go ahead,'says Thiagarajan.
'The star cast comprises some of the biggest stars in the industry and to assemble them all on the sets was quite a challenge. If I got the call sheets of one actor, another would be busy shooting somewhere else. Another challenge was shifting the war battalions from one location to another. Moreover, to give an authentic touch, I have avoided graphics as much as possible.
So, in one scene, if you see a clash of 10,000 horses, in another, you will see 2000 dancers in action. The war and dance sequences will surely be talked about,' claims the director.
