Shankar happened to be one of the top directors of the country at one time. The top director tasted two back to back flops with I and 2.0. His next film Indian 2 is kept on hold due to the creative differences between Shankar and the producers Lyca Productions. The production house approached Madras High Court to resolve the issue and complete the shoot of Indian 2. Shankar is yet to respond about the issue. He announced that he will work with Ram Charan in his next and this film is a pan-Indian project. Shankar also announced a Hindi film which happens to be the remake of his super hit film Anniyan. Ranveer Singh will reprise the role of Vikram and Pen Studios are the producers.
