Shankar’s magnum-opus Endhiran has already broken many records. If, for a first, the music was launched in Malaysia, the songs of Endhiran were top-sellers in Apple’s iStore in two days’ time. Being the costliest Indian movie ever, Endhiran now has another feather in his cap. The song "Kilimanjaro" from the Endhiran album is a big hit. Sung by Javed Ali and Chinmayee, this song has been shot in the Machu Pichu mountain range. Situated in Peru, this Lost land of the Incas is one of the wonders of the world.


Now if you are wondering what is the connection with James Bond, read along. Machu Pichu is a UNESCO World heritage site and attracts a lot of tourists from around the world. A request to shoot the James Bond movie ‘Quantum of Solace’ was turned down, a couple of years back, as the place is rarely used for shooting. Now aren’t we proud that Endhiran has been shot in the same place where no commercial film has ever been filmed before? That’s how you beat James Bond round and square!

Last week we reported that Endhiran is the costliest movie to be made in India. Now the movie has added another record to its credit, which even the James Bond sequel Quantum of Solace failed to achieve.

The movie’s song ‘Kilimanjaro’ was shot at Machu Pichu, the protected heritage site at Peru. Shooting permission at the site is hard to get due to the protected site status of the mountains. It is notable that the Quantum of Solace crew was turned down, when they requested shooting permission at these mountains. The Shankar-Rajni duo always seem to achieve the impossible.
