Shankar knows the knack of roping in hot and happening talents to his films. Now that he is getting ready to start a film with Vikram, his 'Anniyan' hero, the director is signing some of the best people in the industry.
According to sources, Samantha will play one of the heroines of the film, while search is on for the other leading lady. P C Sreeram will wield the camera, while music is by A R Rahman.
The film is said to be about the election process in India, which is the world's largest democracy. In his own style, Shankar is expected to take a dig at loopholes in the system, in this movie which will be made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
Writer-duo Suba is taking care of the script and dialogues. "Shankar is planning to start the shoot by June and to complete it by the end of this year. The film will be a big summer release in 2013," add sources.
