Train fight sequence
We have watched many fighting and dance sequences over the moving train. Starting from Director SP Muthuraman’s Murattukalai in which Super Star performed action with out dupe at a time when special effects were not heard of. Vijayakanth starrer Senthoorapove in nineties had much talked about action scene over the train.
Director Shankar has filmed the same for Gentleman and now he is doing it with the Rajnikanth. Normally for Tamil films, train sequences were shot either in Ooty or Chenkottai. But for Shankar, producer Sun Pictures has found Lonavala, a hill station between Mumbai and Pune. Under Peter Hein our Super Star has performed action without using body double.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s fight
Ash has shown us, her finesse while performing action in films like Dhoom 2 and Jodhaa Akbar. In Endhiran, Rajini teaches Aishwarya Rai martial arts. For performing in film Ash learned Karate from Ramesh master. In Magnum Opus Endhiran, Aishwarya has got a stunt sequence which she fights Rajinikanth.
The director who is known for his innovations has started blogging on first January 2010 as a promotional tool for Enthiren, his film with Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai in the lead. Now visitors can get to see and read the making and pictures of Enthiren.
In his first posting he wrote, “This is Shankar. All the movies I direct demands 24 x 7 attention and I don’t get enough time or opportunity to interact with my audience, the film lovers who seek and wish to know about my movies, myself, my likings, my thoughts etc, I hope blogging will serve the purpose”.
“just back from Pune and Lonavala after finishing an action sequence with both my stars and with this I finished 90 percent of Endhiran”.
This director who is now known for extravaganza has entered Kollywood to be an actor. It’s heard that Shankar has a prominent role in this film. Shankar has kept his role a secret that no one has a hint. His scene will be shot inside a lab. He has appeared on screen in small roles in some of his movies. The latest being Balley Lakka song in Sivaji.
