And this mysterious project has another figure factoring into the equation – a major one at that – and that is Shankar! Combine all three facts and the recent rumors, what do you get? Endhiran 2!!
Yes, it was quite recently that reports of a sequel to the super hit movie surfaced, but remained unsubstantiated by anyone – but now it looks like the ‘stars’ are lining up (literally!).
Now, this huge amount is almost twice the production cost of Kochadaiiyaan and it then should come as no surprise that it won’t be just Eros putting their money on the line – no.. a big Hollywood company is set to put their resources in play as co- producers too. Which is that company? No clue – but if true this would be an all new beginning for Indian cinema in many ways.
After all, Endhiran was not just a national hit but an international one with production values of the flick matching the best. It also gained Rajinikanth a level of stardom even he hadn’t experienced before among the worldwide fans.
It isn’t just a coincidence that the actor’s new nickname around the world became the Endhiran.
Now, let’s also not forget that Rajini and Shankar collaborations have always been epic hits – not just Endhiran but also Sivaji (2007). If things go as they should, both the filmmaker and the superstar should be working on this magnum opus of theirs right after Rajini is done with Lingaa and Shankar has completed the Vikram starrer I.
