Interesting is that Psycho Shankra character played by Navarasan never talks throughout the film. Only his activities rape, extortions etc talk. In real life Psycho Shankra escaped from imprisonment but rounded off very quickly.
The film ‘Psycho Shankra’ main focus on this criminal at large, the reactions of the people – this is what impressed Navarasan to take up the role of the title.
