So what is special about Sivaji The Boss? It is the enviable combination of some of the best talents in the industry.
Shankar is the director with the Midas touch. When Shankar made his last film Anniyan, it was touted as the costliest film ever made in South India, at Rs 30 crores. He had painted 350 houses in Thenkasi for a single song!
The film had a sequence with thousands of people singing at a kacheri, exactly like the Thyagaraja Aradhana conducted every year at Thiruvaiyaru. Now, Sivaji is said to be the costliest film ever made in this part of India.
Shankar has a great box office record with films like Gentleman, Jeans, Kaadhalan, Indian, Boys and Anniyan. None of his films have flopped.
