Rajnikanth, the South Indian superstar is busy in the shooting of his next movie “Endhiran” with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as his female co-star. Rajnikanth is extremely popular in the South and his last movie Shivaji was a huge hit not only in the south but had a very good response all over India and abroad. This movie Endhiran is another huge budget movie and is mainly a science fiction film. The director S Shankar has now got a glass chamber-like structure created in order to shoot a song from the movie. Sources say that it took almost two weeks for the chamber to be created and a few shots from the song will be done there. The budget of this movie is supposedly around 140 crore rupees and it might be the most expensive movie made in India till date. In the movie, Rajnikanth plays a double role of a scientist and a robot. This might be another south movie which is expected to break many box office records.

Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has already given two big Bollywood hits Dhoom 2 and Jodha Akbar. They are regarded as a hot couple even now but both of them have become selective in their movie roles after their marriage with Suzzane Khan and Abhishek Bachchan respectively. Aishwarya’s mother also confessed that she used to like Hrithik’s attitude and looks before her marriage with Abhishek Bachchan. After her marriage too, she was supposed to have been told by her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan that she would not kiss anybody in the big screen like she locked her lips with Hrithik in Dhoom 2. But this hot pair has been brought together once again by ace director of Bollywood Sanjay Leela Bhansali who has decided to cast them in his forthcoming movie. Sanjay has worked with Aishwarya Rai in two of his biggest hits Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas but this would be his first movie with Hrithik Roshan. The movie would be in English for the international market and Bhansali would expect to re-establish himself at the top after his last movie Saawariya was a huge disaster.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali said
directing another film with Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. And, I am very excited about this project and so is my team. This is important to make films for our market but it’s the time when our cinema should reach the remotest corner of the world. Moreover, language is no more a barrier today. This is not the first time that I am making a film in English. My ‘Black’ was in English too
Good luck Sanjay and hope this hot pair creates a dhoom again with their great chemistry.
Miss World 2008 runner up Parvathy Omanakuttan is from Kerela and she has made us proud by bringing the Miss World runner up title this year to India. The South Indian beauty was also debated by some as the worthy for the Miss World crown but she could make it only to the runner up. Though she is not the winner but Miss World crown (though runner up) came to India after a gap of a few years. She is also setting her eyes on Bollywood after the success of previous Miss World from India like Aishwarya Rai and Priyanka Chopra in the industry. Here are some photos of her at an event recently.
Aishwarya Rai Bachan has been very successful as a Bollywood actress.
