Showman of south  Shankar’s magnum opus Ai starring Chiyaan Vikram and produced by Aascar Ravichandran is almost complete and expected to release this summer.

According to Shankar, Ai is a romantic thriller. Ai will have everything we come to expect from his kind of movies. Experts from world famous Weta Studios of New Zealand have done the make-up for Ai. 25% of the shoot was done in China. Most of Ai’s first half will happen in China.

Hollywood Costume Designer Mary E Vogt who has worked in Men in Black and few other movies has done a song in Ai.  Vikram has done lot of physical transformations for this movie which will be a major highlight. The actor also followed a strict diet regimen for this movie.

Shankar hopes it will be a milestone in Vikram’s career and he will be amply rewarded with awards and box- office success once the movie releases.
