The photo above say it all. Director Shankar’s multi-crore release Enthiran, is being called a clever juggle act by his fans. There were strong rumors of the director going for Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan to play the Endhiran lead. Only to be replaced by none other than Thalaivar Rajinikanth later, as he scripted yet another mammoth success story in the history of Tamil cinema.
When inquired into the matter, little did we know that there were some jaw-dropping discoveries for the takes. Pairing opposite Kamal in the never-materialized cast is the dimple faced Bollywood actress Preity Zinta. However she had no competition to queen Aiswarya Rai, who dazzled the screens opposite Rajini in the final version. Kamal fans needn’t be disheartened as there is still hope for something even bigger and better. Industry circles are abuzz, that Shankar will do a sequel to Enthiran that will surprisingly star Kamal in the lead. The director feels that Rajini’s present health conditions won’t permit him to do full justice to the character. Shankar has plotted some heavy dose action sequences for Enthiran 2 that will have our Ulaganayagan in full form.
Check out the still from the initial photo shoots for Endhiran back in 1998 .It’s Kamal and Preity Zinta MIND IT ! 🙂
