After the successful Robo, director Shankar is now making another special effects film described as a romantic thriller which is given an interesting title “I”. It is being produced by Aascar Ravichandran. The music is composed by AR Rahman.
Top technicians have been roped in for the film. Cinematography is by PC Sreeram and Antony is the editor. The costumes are being designed by Mary Vogt of Men In Black franchise. VFX will be by Srinivas M Mohan assisted by a tech team from Hollywood.
Samantha is the heroine in the film. Malayalam star Suresh Gopi plays an important role. Producer Ram kumar, brother of Prabhu, and Santhanam are part of the cast.
There is a lot of speculation about what the title means: Is it a Tamil or English alphabet? Or is it the Roman numeral I ? According to sources, the story writers of the film D. Suresh and A.N. Balakrishnan gave the title Thendral which means breeze. After the screenplay is finalised, Shankar changed the title to “I”.
