The much awaited Rajinikanth starrer sequel ‘Enthiran 2’ (‘Robot 2’ in Hindi) has finally gone on floors in Chennai on Wednesday.
Director Shankar took to Twitter to announce the news and posted, “2.0 shoot starts from tomorrow.. Excited!!!” The film’s Lyricist Madhan Karly too confirmed the news by writing, “Endhiran 2.0 shoot begins today. Happy and proud to be part of the sequel. Heartfelt thanks and wishes to Director @shankarshanmugh.”
Meanwhile, buzz is that Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger who was approached to play the main antagonist in the movie, will not be in the film as the deal failed to work out.
Reportedly, ‘The Terminator’ star made a demand of Rs 120 crore as remuneration which director Shankar found too high and the deal fell through. The makers have now decided to rope in a Bollywood actor to play the baddie.
According to reports, the role was offered to Hrithik Roshan,Vikram and a few other actors, but they could not take up for various reasons. As per the latest buzz, Neil Nitin Mukesh who made his Tamil debut with ‘Kaththi’ has been approached for the role and the actor is likely to be cast in the sci-fi film.
Actress Amy Jackson has been signed on for the film. She will play a robot and will be seen in the role of an antagonist. The makers are on the look-out for another heroine who will be romancing the superstar in the film.
