Shankar Actor Pictures Interview Biography

S. Shankar (born August 17, 1963 in Kumbakonam, Tamil Nadu, India) is a critically accaimed award winning Tamil film director, film producer and screenwriter. He has made many Tamil movies which have social themes with a commercial narration. He is credited with delivering expensive, high end CGI in most of his films. Most of his movies from Tamil are dubbed into other languages especially Telugu and Hindi. Shankar initially worked as an assistant director to S. A. Chandrasekhar.

Career

He started his career with Gentleman which grossed very well, then followed by Kadhalan, Indian, Jeans and Mudhalvan which were all mega-blockbusters. He also remade Mudhalvan in Hindi as Nayak: The Real Hero. His next film Boys was a musical blockbuster but grossed moderately in Tamil and Telugu. His film Anniyan, a psychological thriller, was a huge commercial hit in both Tamil and Telugu languages.

In 2007, he directed and released Sivaji: The Boss with Rajinikanth in the lead role which was an Indian record breaker for the sale of tickets and international popularity, becoming the highest ever grossing film of the Chennai film industry. He is currently working with Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai again, after Sivaji and Jeans respectively, for the film Endhiran which is expected to be released in 2010.
