Director KS Ravikumar shared his memories of working with Sivashankar Master in ‘History’.
What he said about this:
” I knew Sivashankar Master long before I was working on ‘History’. When we started filming, Ajith was hesitant whether his character would be misunderstood. I Sivashankar Master I told Ajith about it and encouraged him.
‘In real life Sivashankar Master has two sons just like your character in the film. But, her body language is only slightly feminine. This is because he has adopted his art form into his body. She will be a womanizer in everything from greetings, swearing, to whining. No one sees it from the wrong perspective, ”I told Ajith.
Love for the Master led to the naming of Ajith as ‘Sivasankar’ in the film. The master will always embrace jaggery. Every time he comes to my office, the whole place smells good. ”
Thus said KS Ravikumar.
