balachandarMany stalwarts of the Indian film industry have been congratulating Shankar in person & over phone after watching Endhiran The Robot. Bollywood Stars Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan had called upon shankar for a special discussion itself. Kamal congratulated the director by sending flowers along with a beautiful message.

But the Most special among them Shankar Feels is the appreciation letter from director Balachander who is his role model.

Few highlights of the letter being  where the veteran says if he had got a chance to do a film with Super Star Rajnikanth, Aishwarya Rai and  all leading technicians he would be have been confused and would not have come out with a film like Endhiran. Instead he would have given a satisfied film for Rajini die-hards but nevertheless like Endhiran.

In the End he signs of  on high level of appreciation note  Showering praises Endhiran is our Avatar, and You are our James Cameron while Sun pictures is our Hollywood MGM pictures.
