Tamil blockbuster machine Shankar to impress me for several years, following the (critical) disappointment of Nanban. While Shankar's international star saw a little bit of light following the West's discovery of 2010 insane-athon Enthiran (Robot), he hasn't done anything worth noting outside of Tamil film since. It looks like that is about to change, and in a huge way.
Ai has released the images here to promote their audio launch event on Monday, September 15th, which promises to be quite a shindig. Shankar has not only roped in the cast of Ai, but also the star of Enthiran, the inimitable Superstar Rajnikanth, and none other than Arnold motherfucking Schwarzeneggar (?) to appear at the event in person. I know I'll be looking for a live feed to that event.
I don't think we have a confirmed release date for the film yet, but this audio launch means that an announcement is imminent. In the meantime, marvel at the absurdity of the images herein. I'm fucking stoked.
