Needless to say, the popularity of the Superstar is soaring great heights after the release of ‘Endhiran’ last week.
His stunning and futuristic looks in the film have been getting much appreciation from all the end as Rajini show cased the difference between the three roles, Scientist Vaseegaran, trendy Chitti and bad chitti in a brilliant manner.
Part of credits goes to the make up artist Banu,the only female make-up artist in India and the woman behind Rajini’s stylish and young looks in Endhiran. Make up work , by Banu has been exceptional and has made Superstar look even more stylish than he usually does .
Banu who already had made her mark with ‘Motta Boss’ getup for Super Star in ‘Sivaji – The Boss’ , a all-new look Says “Rajini sir has very good skin. He still looks youthful because of the positive energy that he exudes.”
On the three different looks in Endhiran, Banu says, ” Shankar sir was very particular about the three looks of the characters of Rajini sir in the film. The scientist look had to be mature, so we gave Dr Vaseegaran an Oakley beard and Rajini sir loved it. “
The most important was creating the good robot’s look. Says Banu, ” I spent hours and days working on the Chitti look. Shankar sir’s demand was the look had to be ‘robotic’ yet natural. My reference was the GI Joe molded toys. We used the ‘peel off mask’ method normally used by beauticians for the look. For the negative robot look, we went for a red tone and spiked the hair like comicbook villains. For Chitti, we used green lens on the eyes of the character.
For the bad robot, we used specially-made brown lens. The leather costumes designed by Mary Vogt (Men in Black fame), along with the sun glasses, was totally in sync with the bad robot character.”
