Among the directed films of S.Shankar, only ‘Boys’ has been a Tamil film which has not been released in Hindi. Another movie was ‘Nanban’ which was a Tamil remake of ‘3 Idiots’.
None of his films have been flopped which is a record. The producers of his films never suffered a loss. Shankar also has been the most earning director of the country (including Bollywood). Ten years ago, he used to take so many millions of directors to direct a film, not even SRK or Salman Khan that could ask for at that time.
