Located in Maranhão state of north eastern Brazil, this flooded sand land was where the song ‘Kadhal Anukkal’ was shot from his recent blockbuster – Enthiran (Robot). The area is mostly composed of large, white, sweeping dunes and was challenging for the film’s  crew to carry the set around amid its unpredictable weather conditions. Not so challenging to get you there though, with us around!

Some years ago, we were all screaming our lungs out when he appeared on screen at the Ferrari World for his Intro song in Lingaa. The team were on a week long schedule at Abu Dhabi to shoot this and head to Scotland for another song and some key sequences for the movie.

The only constraint the museum people had was that none of the crew members (including Rajinikanth himself) touch any of the automobiles, while the camera is not rolling.

3. Bilbao – Spain

This museum of modern and contemporary art was the backdrop in the movie Sivaji, when he becomes all white and shining and comes in front of his lady love to impress her. Located in Spain’s northern coast line, Bilbao has started to attract a lot of architect’s and modern art buff’s. Both the man and the building are Stylish indeed huh? 😉

But like you would’ve known – the white texture, was where the skin tone was graphically peeled off from a shadowing Caucasian woman.

Ah the magical Cotton Castle hot springs of Turkey is truly a romantic place to bask into. The movie that ran for more than a 1000 days made it’s mark on Pamukkale and Cappadocia to shoot a song for Chandramukhi.

That movie that was made with a 19 Crore budget, made 60 Crores right in the first month after its release. You can imagine how much it made for the next 32 months.

This song marked the 1st Indian movie to be shot in South America. On finishing the shoot for the first song for Enthiran, the team flew from Brazil to Peru to put up this lost Inca city as the backdrop for the song – Kilimanjaro.

In certain part’s of the song’s shoot – the actors had to cross the mountain areas via foot (which would be a little strenuous for a 59 year old). But Rajini never wanted to trouble the support team to carry him across and made the hike all by himself at his own pace.
