The buzz about the Vikram starrer and the Shankar directorial is getting bigger day by day. Now, the recent buzz is that, Shankar has gone for a title change, although the previous title was a tentative one. Earlier, Shankar had named the movie with the title Therdal. The title itself was enough to tell what would be the possible storyline for the movie. Many speculations revealed that the story is purely based on the Indian election system and finding the flaws in the system. However, now, according to a few sources close to the movie unit, Shankar has changed the title from ‘Therdal’.
The new title, which has interested the mega filmmaker now, is ‘I’. When we dig out the Tamil dictionary to see the meaning of ‘I’, we would really get into surprise, as there are so many meanings for the single letter ‘I’. The meanings go as king, beauty, astonishment, guru, vulnerability, owner and arrow. The sources tell us that Shankar has gone for such a title simply because it explains all the characters of his hero in the story. The sources close to the director tell us that Shankar was very happy in changing the title, as the new title gives no clue about the story or the plot of the movie. The earlier title did give the idea of what the movie is about.
The sources also revealed the casting and crew of the movie. We already know that Vikram is playing the lead role along with Samantha. The extra news is that Samantha has received a whooping sum of money as her remuneration for romancing Vikram in the movie. It also looks like Santhanam will play the comic role. However, the interesting part of the casting is that Mollywood actor Suresh Gopi would play an important role, Vikram’s friend, in the movie. In addition to this, actor Prabhu’s brother and Sivaji Ganesan’s son, Ramkumar, is also a part of the cast. The technical crew includes P C Sreeram handling the camera and Rising Sun pictures of Harry Potter fame taking care of special effects!
