The speculation over 'Ai' has not ended since the day it was declared, and now the team has thrown light on inching towards Shankar's next magnum opus. The film was buzzed to be a Tamil New Year 2014 release, and we hear from a source close to Vikram that 'Ai' shooting will wrap up by February. The team has just finished a tiring schedule of shooting in Vizag. The reason why 'Ai' has been taking this long is attributed to the time taken for Vikram to bring out the striking changes in his physique - he was first seen robust and macho, and then in a thinned down starved form.
Looking at Vikram's calendar, the actor will be busy with Ayngaran International's project with director Dharani, post the completion of 'Ai'.
