How was it working with the superstar, and his
performance in Sivaji?
is only one word to describe his performance in the film
- R O C K I N G!
Remember he is a superstar and people buy tickets just
to see him, and he has done full justice to what has
been assigned to him. Rajni sir is the complete
professional, a man who does his homework well and still
willing to learn, a director’s dream.
Have you made Rajnikanth look appealing
to his fans? What is the look you have given him?
I think Rajni sir looks dashing and debonair, as he
plays a middle aged man in his late 30's. For that I
needed a different look. So before the shoot I thought
like an ordinary filmgoer in Tamilnadu, the way they
want me to project the superstar. I went through
hundreds of his photos from his previous movies and
selected two pictures for the new look, and then decided
on the wigs that suited him. Along with Bhanu the wig
and hair designer and cameraman K.V Anand I decided on
the look and style. Rajni sir co-operated with us by
doing a make-up test? Which superstar in India will
patiently sit through a make-up to try a new look? He is
genuinely humble and simple man; I have never met a star
like him. Later the measurements were sent to New York,
where they made the wigs that were used in the film. As
far as the look and colour tone of the film is
concerned, I have given it a colourful look as it is a
family entertainer with comedy, romance, songs,
sentiments and action.
