Endhiran (Robo) in the making

Director Shankar’s magnum opus, Endhiran, formerly called Robot, has been in the news ever since its announcement. The unit has flown to the Americas for the first schedule of shooting.
Pulling out all stops to make this a great movie, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been taken as the heroine for a remuneration of Rs. 6 crores! For this breathtaking sum, (a figure which even most South Indian heroes are yet to achieve) the green-eyed beauty’s call-sheet has been commandeered for almost a year, 200 days to be precise. She has been so busy with this project that her absence at the music launch of 'Drona', starring hubby Abhishek Bachchan, was conspicuous.

In fact, she has not even been able to spend time with her ailing father as the cast and crew of 'Endhiran' was busy on their shooting schedule. A couple of important scenes plus two mind-blowing songs were shot among the picturesque landscapes of the grand old Mayan ruins at Machu Pichu.

'Endhiran 'also has the proud distinction of getting Rajni to gain 5 kgs for his role as a love struck robot. This truly epic production has 25 assistant directors, including Soundarya Rajinikanth.

Just recently, some unofficial stills of Rajinikanth and Ash cavorting among the ruins of Machu Pichu, have surfaced on the web.

Is Rajni Declining

Rajnikanth, presently the highest paid actor in India, came a poor fourth in a state-wide opinion poll conducted by students of a private educational institution. The poll was conducted by Loyola College students and late thespians M.G. Ramachandran and Sivaji Ganeshan came first and second.

Vijay, relatively less known than Rajnikanth, has ranked third in the poll by getting 16.4 percent votes, while Rajnikanth got 16.2.

Last year, Rajnikanth had topped the list followed by Vijaykanth. The pollsters attributed the matinee idol's fall from the top position to his latest flop 'Kuselan'. The star is presently abroad shooting for Shankar's 'Robot'. Actor-turned-politician Vijaykanth came fifth by getting 10.7 percent of the votes.

Amongst actresses, National Award winning B. Saroja Devi topped the favourite list, while J. Jayalalitha, AIADMK leaer, former chief minister and current leader of opposition, was ranked number two.

The third and fourth positions amongst former femme fatales were taken by the faded out K.R. Vijaya and recent retiree Jyothika Surya. Controversial actress and television host Khushboo Sundar came fifth. None of the current female heartthrobs including Trisha, Shreya Saran and Nayanthara came anywhere close to their seniors.

Will Chika turn around a new revolution in Indian Cricket???

Chairman of the National Senior Cricket Selection Committee Krish Srikkanth has set his eyes on building a mighty squad to repeat the 1983 glory of winning the World Cup in 2011, which will be held in the Indian subcontinent.

"In the long term, we have 2011 World Cup. We will develop a team towards that World Cup. It is a slow process. But every Indian's dream has been to win the World Cup again after 1983," the former India cricketer told.

The chairman, however, is considering selecting a quality squad for upcoming four-Test series against world champion Australia as his immediate challenge. The high-octane series will commence on October 9 in Bangalore.

"Obviously our first task is to select the best possible team to play against Australia, who have already landed here," he said.

Srikkanth also insisted that he is open to any critisism and will accept the opinions of those, who will censure him in right spirit.

"I will have to take criticism in right spirit. I will have to be nice enough to accept it. We are all used to criticism as everything cannot happen the way you want. Often things go the other way as well," the former right-hand batsman, who represented India in 43 Tests, said.

But we tend to look upon somethings like, do we have the kit to play nor do we know how to play. The site which i told had given a list of sports and have displayed the equipments needed to play the game in an link. It had also given complete guidance to select the good quality sports equipments. They have also displayed the different products available at the stores along with the prices.

For example, i am a person who loves cricket more than anything. But the only problem i had was that, i do not know the places where i could get the bat, ball and other components of the cricket kit along with their respective prices. I went to the link cricket and when i was browsing through the equipments used in cricket like bat,wicket and ball, i was able to see different kinds of tennis ball used for playing cricket which i have never heard from anyone. I was able to see variety of bats produced by various manufacturers.

Another interesting feature that i saw in this site is that it had given information about the skills needed to play a particular sport and has also given us ideas of selecting a good sports product.
