Everything about a Shankar directorial is nothing less than news. It is now said that his 'I' with Vikram and Amy Jackson is a period-cum-contemporary entertainer and that there's room for another female lead in the second half of the film.
Rumors suggest that Deepika Padukone has been approached for this role by Shankar and that the dusky damsel has given her nod albeit she hasn't signed yet on the dotted lines.
However, scribes also express that the Shankar directorial Priyanka Chopra was approached for sometime last year is this film but sources close to the team rule them out as Shankar worked on this script only post 'Nanban'.
The film recently went on floors in Chennai at the AVM Studios and we hear that Amy has wrapped her portions in the first schedule. Like all Shankar films, 'I' started with an extravagant song shoot.
We'll have to wait to see who will play the second female lead in 'I', looks like it will be a B-town actress for sure.
