According to the reports, the director of the film Shankar requested Rajini to put on more weight, atleast 20 kgs, for Endhiran and the Robot man.
After the shooting in Peru and a month long schedule in and around Chennai, the whole cast and crew is said to have shifted their base to Vellore where a fat looking Rajini is shooting for the film
Biriyani is the famous food item in Vellore district, especially, Ambur Biriyani. It is a popular food and very tasty too. Rajini also knew this and ordered his men to arrange special Ambur Biriyani for him as well as for the entire crew.
The production managers arranged this special Biriyani on a daily basis and within few days the actor has gained almost 6 kilos of weight.
It is to be remembered that the actor had completely cut down on rice items for some years to maintain his body in a sleek condition. But for the first time he has broken his long time diet system and has started consuming rice food.
