Ajith Kumar

1. – Rajnkanth, Endhiran/The Robot/Robo, India, 2010. Dream project of director S Shankar since 2001 when Kamal Hassan was set for the double role of scientist Dr Vasigaran and his creation, the robot, Chitthi… falling in love with co-star Aishwarya Rai. Next: Aamir Khan, Shahrukh Khan, and Kumar came – and went. Finally, Shankar made it as not just Tollywood’s but India’s priciest movie, $35m (double Bollywood’s Blue budget), with costumes, stunts, SFX by the Batman, Matrix, Jurassic Park teams, locations in Austria, Brazil, Peru, USA! Anmd starring, at age 60, the bus conductor turned moustachioed megastar of 150 action movies. Rajnkanth is quite literally worshipped by fans of the Kannada, Malayalam, Ytamil, Telugu, language movies of South Indian cinema – India’s largest.
