At the audio launch of Shankar's I, Superstar Rajinikanth said, "What can I say about Shankar. It has been 20 years since he arrived in Tamil cinema. From the time he set foot in the industry, he has only been rising in stature with every film he has made. I, his next film, is the height of his creations so far. But then, his real talent will come to the fore only after this film."
For many, this might sound like just another generic statement but those who know the Superstar well say it could be an indication of the developments happening in Shankar's career. The superstar, insiders say, could have made this statement in reference to Shankar's project Robot 2.
Sources now confirm that director Shankar is ready with the complete script of the sequel of Robot. Says a source close to the director, "Director Shankar has completed the script of Robot 2. He is now looking to put together a great team like the one that made the first part and work on the project seems to be picking up pace."
