5 surprising facts about Shankar’s ‘I’

  A film that has caught everybody’s attention ever since its commencement is director Shankar‘s ‘I‘. A pioneer at making big-budget Tamil movies, Shankar began this ambitious project in 2011 and revealed that national award-winner, Vikram will be part of this movie. 

Ever since, the film has gained an overwhelming response – right from the release of the sensational teaser that fascinated movie buffs, to Arnold Schwarzenegger being the guest of honor at the film’s audio launch. Everything about this film has been attracting attention, which has led to sky-high expectations from this film. Having stated the obvious, here are a few surprising facts we bet you didn’t know about the movie.
 
1. Vikram’s phenomenal transformation
 
 
 
First things first, the one element that caught our undivided attention was the film’s lead actor, Vikram. The actor sports different looks in the film – a beast, a hunch back, a bodybuilder, and a model. It took the actor three years to achieve the physique of a body builder, three to five hours to achieve the look of the beast and he had to lose 20-25 kilos for the role of a model. After noticing his immense dedication, it is safe to say that his histrionics in the movie will win him many accolades. 
 
2. The ‘Lord Of The Rings’ connection
 
 
The popular visual effects and prop company, Weta Workshop, which worked on Peter Jackson‘s The Lord of the Rings trilogy worked on this fantasy film. Headed by Richard Taylor, The Hobbit and Avatar famed studios were instrumental in bringing about the different looks for Vikram in the film.
 
3. Amy Jackson: not the first choice
 
 
Did you know that the London beauty Amy Jackson wasn’t the first choice of this film? It is reported that Asin, Deepika Padukone and Samantha were strong contenders for the role. However, the role eventually went to Amy Jackson. The actress was paid 7.5 million for her role in the film.
 
4. Releasing in more than 4000 screens
 
 
‘I’ is expected to release in Tamil Nadu in more than 400 screens, and in 20,000 screens worldwide. These numbers are truly shocking! Made at a whopping expense of nearly 185 crores, this film is sure to set cash registers ringing due to the festive Pongal week.
 
5. First Indian movie to release in Chinese
 
 
Apart from Hindi and Telugu, the film is expected to release in Chinese as well! And this is the first for an Indian movie. Almost 35 percent of the movie was shot in China. This includes the shoot of an extensive fight-sequence which was shot under harsh climatic conditions. The song ‘Pookale‘ (‘Tu Chale’ in Hindi) shot by ace cinematographer P.C.Sriram, in A.R.Rahman‘s soulful tunes was also picturized in the famous Red Sea Beach, Panjin, China
 
Having been in the making for nearly 3 years, this romantic fantasy-drama is set to release on January 14, 2015. We hope these facts make your movie-watching experience a fantastic one!
