Art director Sabu Cyril, in a recent
interview to a magazine, said that
director Shankar narrated the story
of Endhiran to him 10 years ago.
He recalled the photo shoot that
took place with Kamal Haasan but
the project did not materialize
any further. Similarly, Shah Rukh
Khan also opted out of Endhiran
and finally Rajinikanth lapped it
up. Sabu said that Rajini is the
most apt hero to play the role.
The proud art director said that
he was signed up for the venture
10 years ago. Sabu said that he
had used Aluminum Composite Panels
to create sets for Endhiran. These
are not only cost effective but
can be reused and environmentally
safe. The art director added that
Aluminum Composite Panels have been
used in the Indian cinema before.
