Remember director Shankar’s previous film ‘Anniyan‘, in which Vikram’s character of Ambi transforms to Remo just to win his childhood love, Gayathri’s (played by Sadha) affection?
If reports are to be believed, it is a very similar premise upon which the Robot Rajini is created in ‘Endhiran‘. Rajini plays a scientist cum professor in a college and is smitten by Aishwarya Rai. But the actress does not reciprocate and this is when Rajini receives an offer to make a robot. The professor uses this chance to create a robot which is his look alike and makes it modern for Ash to like.
Scenes in the film, which show the robot Rajini buying modern clothes in City Centre or styling its hair in a posh salon in Adyar are said to be thorough complete laugh riots, also similar to Rajini dabbing Fair and Lovely or doing face packs to look fair in ‘Sivaji’ – The Boss’.
‘Endhiran’, produced by Sun Network, is director Shankar’s second film each with Rajini and Aishwarya Rai. Raju Sundaram has choreographed for professor Rajini for a song while Lawrence has choreographed for the Robot Rajini. Grapevine also has it that Shankar might seek the help of renowned Indian Hollywood filmmaker, Manoj Night Shyamalan, in making this film.
