Looks like Shankar has pulled a casting coup of all sorts! Yes, you heard it right! The director has roped in 'Terminator' Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the villain in Rajinikanth's 'Robot 2' (Enthiran in Tamil).
Arnold will be flying down for the film's first schedule in January. As per a Mumbai Mirror report Shankar was quoted as saying, "Arnold and I discuss a lot of Indian movies. He attended the audio launch of my Vikram starrer, 'I', and told me that he wanted to work in Tamil films. He was imprssed with the storyline of 'Enthiran 2' and agreed to be a part of the film.
We hear that the makers had been chasing actors like Aamir Khan and Deepika Padukone for other central roles in the film. Amy Jackson has already given her nod to be a part of this sci-fi sequel.
'Robot 2' will be a superhero film, a sci-fi adventure and a triangular love story with bits inspired from the Ramayana.
