Karthik Subbaraj wrote the story of Ram Charan’s RC 15 directed by Shankar

Karthik Subbaraj has been busy with the promotions of his upcoming film, Mahaan. During an interview with a Tamil magazine, Karthik confirmed that he had written the story of director Shankar’s RC 15.

He also revealed that RC15 is a political story. Karthik Subbaraj said that he feels extremely proud to have collaborated with director Shankar, who was impressed with his story.

He said, “It’s true. I have written the story of RC 15 and Shankar sir and his team worked on the screenplay and dialogues. During the lockdown, Shankar sir initiated several Zoom call sessions with fellow directors. Lingusamy, Mani sir [Mani Ratnam] and several others were a part of the call. Shankar sir was very friendly and he asked if I and others had any story that he could direct.”

Karth Subbaraj then added, “I had this political story written several years ago. Long ago, I felt that it would be better if Shankar Sir directed the film. So when I pitched it to him, he loved it and agreed to take it forward. I was extremely happy and proud to have collaborated with him.”

Tentatively titled RC15, the film is produced by Dil Raju and Sirish under Sri Venkateswara Creations.
