Industry continues to speculate on the release date of Shankar's I, we got a sneak peek of Mersalayitten, a song from the film. Shot predominantly in North Chennai, the song has a joyous Vikram who has managed to get a photo clicked with his love. But what is clearly its USP is the visual effect of objects (from a mobile phone, a TV set and a motorbike to even foam and sprouts!) that Vikram comes across seamlessly morphing into Amy Jackson.
When asked the reason for the delay in the film's release, producer Aascar Ravichandran said AR Rahman was still working on the background score of the film and would complete it in the next few days.Said Ravichandran, "Rahman has delivered the score for six reels and has to deliver five more reels. But he is taking such a long time mainly because he feels that the film needs an outstanding score to match the visuals on screen. For the past five months, he has been working on the film, both in his studios in Chennai and Los Angeles.? Ravichandran says the Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions of the film will definitely release in December and that December 25 is a likely date.
