Ram Gopal Varma said Shankar’s craze has gone beyond Rajnikanth’s. After watching the trailer of I movie, RGV has showered praise on the talented director. RGV tweeted, ” In pure eyeball grabbing and generating electrical enthusiasm I think Shankar is bigger than Rajinikanth. My prediction is that I collections on first day will be bigger than Lingaa and that’s why I say Shankar is bigger than Rajinikanth.”
” I was a super huge fan of Rajinikanth but now I shifted my loyality to Shankar. The biggest of directors depend upon Sharuk’s, Salman’s and Aamir’s and Shankar destroys Rajinikanth and that Shankar power against Star Power”, extended RGV.
