Leading Tamil director Karthik Subbaraj is the talk of the town after the phenomenal success of his latest film, the Raghava Lawrence and SJ Suryah-starrer, Jigarthanda DoubleX. With his return to the cinemas off to a great start after his last two films Jagame Thandhiram (2021) and Mahaan (2022) premiered directly on streaming, the hit filmmaker recently sat down with National Award-winning film critic Baradwaj Rangan, the Editor-in-Chief of Galatta Plus, to talk about his writing process for the highly-anticipated Telugu-Tamil bilingual, Game Changer, starring Ram Charan under Shankar's direction. 

Speaking about his discussions with Shankar for the storyline of Ram Charan's Game Changer, Karthik Subbaraj said, "I felt very happy and honored that a person like Shankar sir was asking for a story from me. I already had that story and we discussed it a few months back before [we started to work on it]. It's a political story and we finished, and we discussed it here. What my team members told me was that the story is in Shankar sir's zone and only a big hero has to do this. And, I also felt that it was too early and I didn't want to get into too much politics." He added, "When Shankar sir asked, I said, 'Sir, I wrote a story and everyone is saying that it's like your film.' So, he liked that story and I gave it to him. And, the detailed screenplay and all, Shankar sir is doing. So, I'm really excited to see what Shankar sir has planned because when we sat down for a discussion later, he told me about how he's going to make a normal scene that I wrote. I saw the elements he was adding and how he was making it bigger, and more appealing to the masses. I told him that I was keen to watch the film and the changes he has made."
