Shankar’s penchant for dabbling with themes like politics and corruption is well known. In the past, he has made films like Gentleman, Bharatheeyudu, Oke Okkadu and Shivaji which had one man taking a stand against the system to bring a change. His next film tentatively titled Therdhal starring Vikram is reportedly based on election commission and also cash for votes scam which rocked the country few years ago. Shankar has already begun working on the film’s script and the film is likely to go on floors after September. A Bollywood heroine is likely to be cast in the film and more details will be announced soon. PC Sriram is likely to be the cinematographer and AR Rahman might compose the music.
