Following Mani's bilingual epic Raavanan, this year's other much awaited extravaganza the Shankar directed Endhiran will hit the screens. If industry inside sources are to be believed, Shankar is on the verge of announcing the release date, which is likely to be September 3, 2010. Endhiran, the sci-fi fantasy has been in the making for a couple of years with superstar Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai in the lead.
Owing to its mammoth budget, Eros International decided to drop the project earlier during the recession period after which SUN pictures took it over. Endhiran is reportedly made at a whopping budget of Rs. 190 crores, the highest ever budget for a motion picture in Indian cinema. Oscar winner A R Rahman scores for the movie, which is co-written by the late writer Sujatha.

The love story between Karthik and Jessie has touched 100 days. The mellifluous love story made grand by Gautham Vasudev Menon with utmost simplicity is the reliever of the year.
Industry rejoices as it is the first major hit of the year and Gautham even more and he feels it is a "real hit". Repeat, "real hit". His advertisement says it comprehensively.
‘VTV’ celebrates 100 days even in Bangalore and Thiruvananthapuram which a worthy news to spread.
Trisha who spoke to her online friends has said “VTV is a film closest to my heart.” Couple of days ago we even reported Silambarasan throwing a party to his close friend to celebrate the 100 days of ‘VTV’.Trisha was not at the party because she is out of the country on vacation. The mood is more ebullient that even Trisha may throw a party when she returns.
The words came from the horse's mouth. Rajinikanth who visited government tourism exhibition campus few days back himself confirmed that ‘Endhiran’ will be an August release.
We had reported few days back quoting director Shankar that the film is complete but for one song. Now we hear even that song has been shot and the shooting comes to an end today.
‘Endhiran’ has six songs and one song was crooned by A R Rahman in the lines of “Athiradi” song in ‘Sivaji’. This song was the last one to be shot. Shankar wanted a massive hotel lobby to shoot the song and after trying number star hotels in the city he finally settled for a hotel still under construction near Anna Arivalayan in Teynampet. Shankar modified the hotel to his needs and started shooting on Monday. Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai participated.Shankar winds up the film today and will go into post production. Ooh... the excitement multiplies.
Confirming media reports that his forthcoming venture ‘Endhiran’ is getting ready for release, Superstar Rajinikanth has said the high-budget extravaganza would hit the screens by August.
“Endhiran is almost over. Only one song has to be shot. Everything will be completed soon and the film will be released in August,” the top actor told reporters, when he visited ‘Kodai Thiruvizha' organised by the Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation on Island Grounds in Chennai Monday.
When asked how the film directed by Shankar and produced by Sun Pictures was taking shape, the matinee idol expressed satisfaction and said, “I am happy about Endhiran and looking forward its release.”Asked what made him to visit the Kodai Thiruvizha, Rajini said, “Poet Vairamuthu’s son and Information Minister Parithi Ellamvazuthi's son son have been part of this show. I have come here on their invitation.”
