2010 is going to be an interesting test for Indian sci-fi movies. There is RA.ONE starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor where SRK will take on his own robotic monster called RA.ONE.
Endhiran is also a movie about a robot – an android.
Endhiran will see the Tamil cinema debut of Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Aishwarya Rai will be paired with the south Indian superstar Rajnikanth. The credited star cast also has veteran Danny Denzongpa, Santhanam, Karunas and more.
S. Shankar also directed the Tamil blockbuster, and also one of the most expensive Indian movies, Sivaji The Boss (2007) starring Rajnikanth, Shriya Saran, Suman, Vivek, Raghuvaran and others. Music of Sivaji was composed and directed by A.R Rahman.
Oscar winner A.R Rahman is composing and directing music for Endhiran.
Estimates for the budget of Endhiran range from 120 crores to 180 crores – it is quite likely the most expensive film ever made in Indian cinema.
The expected release date of Endhiran is April 14, 2010.
