Shankar’s pat for Vikram

Shankars pat for Vikram Director Shankar cannot stop heaping laurels on Chiyaan Vikram. He has been praising him for his wonderful efforts in I, which is releasing this Pongal.

Says Shankar, ‘For the role of the body builder, I requested Vikram to put on weight. He worked extremely hard for it and we were happy with the output. For the other role of a disfigured man, I never asked Vikram to lose weight but he felt it would suit the role’.

I said it was not required but he was hell bent on achieving it as he found it to be exciting. He was madly dedicated for the role. Going by whatever hes gone through for the film, I sometimes felt he was crazy. But all that worked in favour of the film,’ he said.
