Shankar and Rajinikanth are going all out to cut costs for Endhiran (The Robot), by shooting in parts of Tamil Nadu, the streets of Chennai and studio settings.
After shooting at a private engineering college in Vellore, the unit moved further south to Kelavakkam near Tirupur. Here, scenes were shot at a private educational institute, with Aishwarya Rai as a college student and Rajnikanth as a scientist. The same institute was used by Shankar for shooting the climax lead for his Sivaji.
Meanwhile, the team will now shift to a Chennai studio for a dream song of the student who gets smitten by the scientist! Art director Sabu Cyril is making a huge set to shoot the song, which is a duet.
To shoot two of his earlier songs , director Shankar had gone to Peru, Los Angeles, parts of the US and the sunny beaches of Goa. Knowing Shankar’s penchant for grandeur, one can expect this song to be shot on a lavish scale.
