Movie Enthiran, directed by Shankar, and made at huge budget, stars Rajinikanth. The secret behind the robot Rajini wearing sunglass throughout the movie has come to light.
It was assumed that the getup was to differentiate between the scientist and the robot character. But now it has come to light that this was done to mitigate expenses for visual graphics.
An amount of Rs. 70 crores was planned for visual effects of movie Enthiran. Visual effects supervisor Srinivas Mohan reduced the expenditure to Rs. 20 crore taking into account just three things.
It takes a long time to bring in the movement of eyes through visual effect. So, the cinematographer suggested Shankar to make changes in Rajini’s body in three ways.
First one is wearing cooling glasses. So, much time need not be spent to bring in the movement of eyes through visual effects.
Then, shortening length of hair, making Rajini wear a leather dress were done. Thus, the expenditure for visual effects was brought down from Rs 70 crores to Rs 20 crores.
Now, you may have understood the secret behind the sunglasses.
