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.
