Rajini came to the shooting in the early morning to the studios AC floor and later the team of Shankar joined with him. The producer of Robot, Ayngaran Karunamurthy also attended the shooting. Apart from Rajini's make-up woman Bhanu, who was reason for Rajini's young looks in Shivaji, there are two more make-up specialists going to work in this film as consultants to give young and different looks to the Superstar.
