A clutch of Hollywood biggies are coming on board for Tamil superstar Rajnikanth's upcoming film Endhiran.

Budgeted at $24 million, the Tamil film that is being shot in Chennai is touted as one of the most expensive movies ever shot on the Asian subcontinent - and its credits include some of Hollywood's major names, reports contactmusic.com.

To name a few, the Stan Winston special effects house is creating a robot that will be a replica of the Indian film star.

Other Hollywood big names to join the project are costume designer Mary E. Vogt, who created the costumes in Batman Returns and Men In Black, fight-scene designer Woo-Ping Yuen, whose credits include Kill Bill and The Matrix, and an unnamed Hollywood make-up artist assigned to co-star lead actress Aishwary Rai.

The production is being backed by the Sun TV network.

The movie is currently in its fourth month of production and will take another year to complete.
