When asked Shankar that the film Three Idiots was not his brand and how he came forward to remake this film. Shankar while speaking about this said, “In between the heavy tension of Endhiran I got the opportunity to see the Hindi film Three Idiots.
I went to see this film without any expectations. Every scene mesmerized me. After coming out of the theatre my mind was so fresh.
So I phoned my wife and asked her to not to miss this film. She saw the film three times with the family members. This is a simple cinema but a great film.
So I decided to the produce myself under the banner S Pictures. But it is surprising that I got the opportunity to direct this film. In fact I was planning to make a film after Endhiran with a different shade and youthfulness.
I wanted this film should have no connection with Endhiran. Now when I see the rushes of this film in the editing table, I feel that I have made the right decision to remake the film Three Idiots.”
