Endhiran is one of the most eagerly awaited films of 2010. It is also the most expensive film ever made in Tamil.

The film stars Tamil superstar Rajnikanth and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and is directed by the director with the Midas touch, Shankar.

The film is being produced by Sun Pictures.

A R Rahman has composed the music for the film, and has already recorded five songs in a Mumbai studio. Rathnavelu is the cinematographer. 

Prabhu Deva, who rarely choreographs these days, has made an exception for Endhiran. He is choreographing some great dance movies for Rajnikanth in three songs. One of the songs has Rajni show off a hundred different styles.

The other two songs are choreographed by Raghavendra Lawrence and Prabhu Deva's brother Raju Sundaram.

One of the songs was shot in Peru while the title song was shot in Ramoji Rao film city in Hyderabad.

Like in Shankar's previous films, the picturisation of the songs will be a major highlight of Endhiran

The lyrics of one song are penned by Kaviyarasu Vairamuththu and starts like this: Robovuku thaai mozhi kidaiyadhu, thandhai mozhidhan undu (Robo does not have a mother tongue, it has only father's tongue).

It seems the lyrics are much appreciated by the superstar, who celebrated his 60th birthday on December 12, in Pune, while shooting for the film.
