Director Shankar had cast a real life transgender – Osma in his recent release ‘I’ that stars Vikram and Amy Jackson in lead roles. This had created some issues among the Transgender community for showcasing them in bad light. Apparently, as the community members have started staging some protests against the director, a strong police protection has been delivered to the residence of Shankar.
‘I’ is produced by Aascar Ravichandran and is directed by Shankar with the worldwide release happening in three different languages of Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The box office collections are turning to be a peak of Aascar Ravichandran’s career and the satellite rights in three different languages are sold for a whopping price.
