Top South Indian director Shankar and actor Ram Charan are working on a film RC15 and the shoot is happening as per plan. But it seems Shankar is a bit upset about the actor and the decision to make this film. Here’s what we know.
Ace director Shankar had plans to complete the entire shoot of the film RC 15 by the end of this year and this untitled film is aimed for the summer 2023 release. He also has one more film Indian 2 starring Kamal Haasan and the director plans to shoot both Indian 2 and Ram Charan’s film simultaneously.
While making the movie with Ram Charan, Shankar has a big headache on his side. It is the fact that Rajamouli projected RC in a way even fans didn’t imagine. The way the RRR director designed RC’s character was simply spectacular. It will be very difficult for Shankar to match the heroism of Ram Charan in his film with that of RRR. Largely it will be a difficult task for Shankar to satisfy the audience’s expectations from Charan after RRR.
With these challenges, Shankar wants to go all out and would do anything to make RC15 a blockbuster. However, the 58-year-old is facing problems to bring out Ram Charan’s true potential. Sharing news from the set, a Hyderabad-based media channel claims that Shankar is not happy with Ram Charan’s performance and is regretting doing this film with the RRR actor.
