Shankar the perfectionist

shankar-directorChennai: Director Shankar is always known for that extra mile he goes to make sure his film appeals to all sections of the audience. And the man has employed the same tactics in his forthcoming film Nanban as well. We hear the director is shooting a duet song for the film in a famous studio in Chennai and is making sure Vijay and Ileana’s looks in the same are remembered for years to come.

The grapevine says that Vijay has four different never-seen before get-ups in this song and it takes him close to two hours to apply make-up and another two hours to remove it. Even Ileana looks different in the song. Shankar patiently waits while the actors get their make-up done.”

Shankar is a director who pays a lot of attention to the way the characters look in his films. Many still remember Kamal Haasan’s look in Indian and Rajinikanth’s get-ups for a song in Endhiran. We’re sure Vijay too will now join the list.
