Rajinikanth in the song Oru
koodai Sunlight.Everyone thought it was make-up that
made Superstar Rajinikanth look like a European in that
song, but the secret is about a year of computer
"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.
