Vikram is pinning his hopes on I since the films Thandavam and David were utter flops. There is also great anticipation about this film since Shankar is joining hands with Vikram after Anniyan. Amy Jackson is pairing with Vikram in this film.
Others in the cast are Santhanam, Suresh Gopi, Ram Kumar, Power Star and others. A R Rahman is composing music while P C Sriram is in charge of cinematography. Aascar Films which produced Anniyan is also producing I.
Vikram while speaking about this film said, “I am donning a different kind of role in I. As far as I is concerned it is life or death for me. I am donning the role of a lean man as well as a fat man. I have changed my entire physique. Seeing the graphic techniques of I, I feel it is ten times more than Anniyan.
Since this is a high budgeted film, this film is also being released in Hindi. I doubt that any other actors would have taken the effort I have taken for the film I. I am acting in such a difficult and tough role. When I reduced by weight, my children started asking me what is wrong with me. I am very careful that my health should not spoil because of these efforts.”
