Is Prasanth and his father Thyagarajan desperate to salvage the actor’s career which is going nowhere?

In a smart move, they have chosen to make Ponnar Shankar a historical based on Chief Minister M.Karunanidhi's short story written for a Tamil weekly.

Ponnar and Shankar are two war heroes in Tamil literature who are worshipped even today in parts of Tamilnadu as 'Gods'. Critics claim that Karunanidhi's story is a classic and has the potential to be made into a commercial film as there is a lot of heroism in the subject.

On Wednesday morning Prasanth and Thyagarajan held a press meet to announce the Ponnar Shankar project which will start rolling soon. The film is going to be made on a mega budget, with the best of technicians involved.
