Sivaji Movie Rajini Facial Techniques

"We used cutting edge grafting technology and it was Shankar's brain child," revealed the film's cinematographer KV Anand. "For the first time grafting technology has been used for an Indian film which was made possible by a Chennai based company Indian Arts who had worked in Shankar's earlier films," he said. One of the dancers, Jacky, was chosen by Shankar and Rajini's skin tone was matched with her's. The six and a half minute song was shot in Spain.
"Each shot of Rajni's in the song was once again shot with Jacky and was sent to Indian Arts. Since the lighting varies in indoor and outdoor, to match the skin tone, expressions, lip and body movements of the two was a challenging task," explained Anand. A total of 6700 frames were been for post production. Rajinikanth himself was amazed after watching the song.
