Earlier there was news doing the rounds that Shankar dropped his plans to direct Endhiran 2. At the “I” audio launch Rajnikanth said "What can I say about Shankar. It has been 20 years since he arrived in Tamil cinema. From the time he set foot in the industry, he has only been rising in stature with every film he has made. I, his next film, is the height of his creations so far.
But then, his real talent will come to the fore only after this film." Is there any indication about Endhiran 2 in the statement? Well, sources says yes. But there is no official confirmation from either side.
