Shankar�s cameo role in Sivaji

He may be an ace director and knows how to extract perfect work from his artistes. However, that most certainly does not mean that Shankar knows the nuances of acting. Shankar encountered the embarrassing moment when he tried his hand in acting on the sets of Sivaji recently. You may wonder when he started acting. Well, read on folks.
It is customary for Rajini’s directors to appear in a scene or two in his movies. For instance, K.S. Ravikumar appeared in Muthu and Padayappa, and P. Vasu appeared in the latest Chandramukhi. With that in mind, we concur that Rajini insisted Shankar to appear in one of the scenes of Sivaji. A scene has been canned while the crew was at its shoots in Pune recently, where Shankar, Thottadarani – the art director, and K.V. Aanand – the cinematographer appear in the movie. Though the scene has a screen life of 10 seconds, Shankar could not get it right and had to go for retakes 5 times. However, we heard that Thottatharani, and K.V. Anand came off with flying colors. Is Shankar camera shy?
Sivaji’s schedule in Pune is finished and the crew has reportedly landed in Chennai after the successful completion of the shoots.
