Director Shankar is taking every step to keep his project Enthiran away from the inquisitive eyes of media and fans. It is learnt that the crew arrives at the shooting spots in batches and sneaks in the equipment required for the shooting. Finally, the stars arrive and complete the shoot without letting any outsider even getting a peak. Also, the shooting spots are in remote locations, which helps them shoot with minimum public attention. The reason for all this stealthy operation: The never-seen-before curiosity of the media and fans about Enthiran (also referred to as Endhiran). And everyone is so eager to get at least a glimpse of “Enthiran Rajni”!
So far, the crew has shot in Machu Picchu in Peru (photos of that shoot leaked out, which led to all these stringent measures and security); in obscure locations of Tondiarpet, Tiruvanmiyur and East Coast Road near Covelong; and in some locations of North Chennai where tsunami scenes of Dasavathaaram were shot! Everyone came to know about the shoot only after it was over!
Kollywood grapevine even asserts that Shankar was successful in holding a shoot in the heart of the city (a hotel in T. Nagar!!!) without anyone realizing it! Now, that may sound unbelievable, but with the stringent and extreme measures that Shankar is taking to avoid Enthiran’s exposure to the public before its release, even that might be possible!
