The 2.0 director is 56 today!

He was born 56 years ago in Kumbakonam in  Tamil Nadu and has been making waves since 1993. Films like IndianJeans and 2.0, all very successful and lauded,  have made him a force to reckon with in the world of cinema.  Shankar's films generally focus on contemporary issues that affect society today,  with a strong protagonist who is not against using violence to fix problems.  The songs in his productions are extravagantly conceptualized and executed,  with special effects,  lavish costumes and state of the art technology. 

Shankar tends to work with AR Rahman most of the time, producing songs like
