Name a movie that had Vijay and director Shankar working together

Seetha, the movie directed by S.A.Chandrasekar had his assistant director Shankar and son Vijay doing small roles.

P.S : They have probably worked together for more than one movie. Vijay has been child artiste for several S.A.Chandrasekar movies that could have been having Shankar as assistant director. No documented facts available to substantiate.

What were the earliest instances of Kamal Haasan (then, Kamalahasan) being involved in the writing of a film.

1. Unarchigal (1976) -- He co-wrote this film with R. C. Sakthi, the director of the film. He also rewrote the film for its Malayalam version.

2. Meendum Kokila (1981) -- The story is credited to Hasan Brothers (Kamalahasan and Chandrahasan) -- Ananthu wrote the screenplay (incl. dialogue). In a way, this served as a precursor to their first home production (Hasan Brothers), Raaja Paarvai -- written by Kamalahasan -- that came later in the same year.
[Bonus trivia: The title, by the by, is a take-off on Balu Mahendra's maiden film Kokila (1977; Kannada), which starred Shobha and Kamalahasan.]
