Shankar seems to be consumed by his work as he spends practically all his time on Nanban, with Vijay and the rest of the cast. On the rare occassions when he finds free time does he chill out to the maximum? No he doesn't, he spends that precious time working on a fresh script which will go on the floors once Nanban is done.
There has been a lot of interest on what his next project will be. Some have said that he will make another film based on tackling a particular social evil the way films like Gentleman, Indian, Anniyan, and Shivaji did. This is Shankar's forte and he is considered by many as an expert on the subject. But right now Shankar's entire focus is on Nanban and he refuses to think about anything else. Except in his free time of course.
