Director Balaji Mohan, who is known best for his Maari films with two-time National Award-winning actor Dhanush, announced his debut in Bollywood on Monday. Titled Click Shankar, the upcoming film being produced by Junglee Pictures is billed to be a high-concept thriller and is the first installment of a franchise. Expressing his joy at taking his first steps in the Hindi film industry, Balaji Mohan shared a poster for the film and tweeted, "Excited to announce my 1st Hindi Film! #ClickShankar A high-concept thriller with @jungleepictures. The 1st instalment in the #ClickShankar universe that’s a blend of action, humour & heart :)" 

In an official press release from Junglee Pictures, the synopsis for Click Shankar is as follows: "Unraveling the mystery, will be a one-of-a-kind lead character – a witty yet troubled inspector who remembers everything, that is both a boon and curse for him. Shankar Rebeiro has a rare condition called Hyperthymesia, which enables him to remember every event of his life, ensuring that the past is never quite behind him. The film's first poster has been unveiled." 

Speaking about Click Shankar, Balaji Mohan stated, "This film needed a unique vision for its treatment with the protagonist being an original, one-of-a-kind character. An amalgamation of something deep, dark & edgy being wrapped with humour to keep the audience guessing and at the edge of their seats till the end. These synergies wouldn't have matched better with anyone other than the Junglee Pictures team and developing this project with them has been a superb experience. I found this to be the perfect film to make my debut in Hindi cinema with, and we cannot wait to present all that is in the making."

Likewise, Junglee Pictures CEO, Amrita Pandey said, "The concept of Click Shankar originated from within the Junglee Pictures’ creative team as a character-driven franchise. Binky’s distinctive writing expertise on the story and screenplay along with Balaji’s mastery of commercial sensibilities and well-defined mass appeal have enhanced the narrative of this film. Sumit & Suraj have taken it to the next level with the sharp and entertaining dialogues. More importantly, there is heart to this thriller genre, making it an exciting opportunity to create something unique."
