Endhiran rocks the Bollywood boat
Until three years ago, Rajnikanth’s films were runaway hits only down South. But the turning point came with Sivaji – The Boss. Its Tamil version was a hit in Mumbai. And its Hindi dubbed version did even better. Kuselan (2008) though was a debacle.
But Endhiran/ Robot, the Rs 150 crore sci-fi fantasy adventure that opened last Friday, is looking to break all barriers, across language and box-office collections. And trade experts insist that despite a slow start, it is now streaking past the Ranbir Kapoor-Priyanka Chopra romcom, Anjaana Anjaani, even in the Hindi belt.
