Chidambaram put Endhiran back on track

It took the permission of the home minister, P. Chidambaram, to help Rajnikanth shoot an action sequence for his film Endhiran, directed by Shankar, also starring Aishwarya Rai.
Rajni was to shoot the sequence in Lonavla on the train in the famous railway heritage corridor. But the location they picked was a restricted one where shooting wasn’t allowed. No filmmaker was able to procure permission to shoot there.
Shankar, Rajnikanth and Aishwarya Rai however, pulled some strings and special permission was procured from the minister, P. Chidambaram. Peter Heinz choreographed the action sequence, which was shot on the train.
Incidentally, a portion of the film Johnny Gaddaar, too was to be canned at the same location, but due to lack of permission, the shoot had to be cancelled.(DC)
