The rumours started making rounds immediately after the clue about Rajini playing duel roles in the film.
It is reported that there are a few striking similarities between Upendra"s Hollywood and Rajinikanth"s Endhiran. Uppi played a man and a robot, whereas in Endhiran, Rajini is also said to be playing dual role in which one is robot. Secondly, a monkey played an important role in Uppi's film whereas mosquito is said to be appearing in that role in Endhiran.
It is said that director Shankar of Endhiran had once told Upendra that he was doing a science-fiction film in Tamil and it was inspired by his 2002 Kannada movie. But the director Dinesh Babu and actor Upendra of Hollywood have dismissed the romours claiming it to be a remake.
However, Upendra has done the movie Hollywood in the Kannada in 2002 and it has a good message to society. But it should be noted here that Hollywood was made with Rs. 10 crores whereas Endhiran is made with a whopping amount of Rs. 170 crores. This makes Dinesh Babu say that there can never be similarities in these movies.
