Sony pictures back Shankar. Will Rajini?
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
January 04, 2008
Sony Pictures India is said to have been so impressed with Shankar's Robot that they have offered to produce it right away, which they say, might cross the Rs.100 crore mark, making it India's most expensive movie ever made. The production house is also said to have asked Shankar to convince the superstar to feature in this mega budget sci-fi flick as they feel only he can bring in the

moolah, a belief that has stemmed after the stupendous success of Sivaji. The production house also believes that the project becomes financially viable only if it is made in three major languages – Hindi, Tamil & Telugu.

It is confirmed that Shankar did have a discussion with Rajinikanth on the story. The director's side also corroborate that the Superstar was impressed. Now the ball is in Rajinikanth's court. The actor is still to give his confirmation, contemplating about two things - one, the time he might need to start work on the project, as his daughter's maiden venture Sultan – The Warrior, still needs some of his contributions and two, the trade implication of such a huge project on B & C centers.

But top news sources inside Kollywood promise some announcement to come through in a day or two, most probably from Shankar's side. Until there is an official press release, no news on the Superstar is confirmed news. Didn't we learn a lesson from the Mani-Kamal-Rajini episode?
